Last week I had an appointment with my psychiatrist..I was taking 75mg zoloft manufactured by greenstone. It was great up until about 5 months and then it stopped working, so he gave me lexapro. I'm almost fully weaned off or the zoloft. But I'm a little worried because I've read SO many horror stories about the generic escitalopram online and they are sort of scaring me. But most of these complaints were from people that switched from the brand to generic. So when you start right from generic vs switching, does it work how it should? The manufacturer is camber and I'm apprehensive about taking it. Please help!! Thanks so much!
Dustin, Lorz asked this same question yesterday. Here's the link:
I was on generic lexapro and I had no emotions of any sort. No laughing no crying no sense of humor. I felt like a zombie. It got do bad I couldn't even smile or things like that. I told the doc and he said just stay on it you will get better.. BS!!! It got worse. But, each person is different so do what's best for you and your body..
I have been taking generic Lexapro (escitalopram) for 5 years. I have no problems at all except for one thing: anger. I have no idea why I am having this problem. I get so angry at almost everything, and I feel like I'm turning insane or something. But I have no idea why everyone is experiencing head aches... that's awfully strange :(
