Greenstone's generic of 20mg paroxetine HCL looks identical to Aurobindo's generic of paroxetine. Even the imprints are the same. Are they the same EXACT pill?
I switched from gen. manufacturer Aurobindo to Greenstone. Same imprint on pills. Same exact makeup?

Very likely to be exactly the same pill.
Aurobindo Pharma is a generic drug manufacturer based in India, which has agreements with Pfizer and Greenstone (the generic arm of Pfizer).
The inactive ingredients are the same for both the Greenstone and Aurobindo labeled products:
Inactive ingredients in tablets: dibasic calcium phosphate dihydrate, lactose monohydrate, sodium starch glycolate, dibasic calcium phosphate anhydrous, magnesium stearate, hypromellose, titanium dioxide, polyethylene glycol and polysorbate 80. In addition to this, 10 mg tablet contains D&C Yellow #10 Aluminum Lake and FD&C Yellow #6 Aluminum Lake. 20 mg and 40 mg tablets contain D&C Red #30 Aluminum Lake. 30 mg tablet contains FD&C Blue #2 Aluminum Lake.
