Your post was a little harsh. I am in no way putting down antidepressants as I have taken fluoxetine for many
years. I stopped taking the medication in September, 2012 because every 90 days it became an ordeal
trying to get the pharmacy to order the Sandoz brand. I kept being told that all generic fluoxetine is the same
so once again I tried different brands. One made me so dizzy I could not function the 5 days I was on it.
Since I was not feeling very well I finally was able to talk Walgreens into special ordering the meds for me.
This medication is a god send. I have had chronic pain since 1992 which plays havoc with my nervous system.
I would never discourage anyone from taking antidepressants as I believe they save many lives.
It is a known fact that the fillers make the main ingredient act differently in some people. I am very sensitive
to medication so I find it insulting for a pharmacist to tell me that they are all the same. My dr. stated that he
has many patients have difficulties with one manufacturer over another.
