Yes there can be a difference in effect from a tablet to a capsule as there is from one generic brand of fluoxetine to another generic brand (different manufacturers) In theory there is supposed to be no difference, but I tried several different brands of generic fluoxetine and there was a definite difference in that some did not work for me at all.
I found the exact same difference on Citalopram, I had to change from one generic brand to another to get it too work for me.
Each manufacture uses a different filler and I feel that is what makes the difference. Many other people have had the same experience.

I have had this same issue. When I take the capsules, they don't seem to be nearly as effective, and I feel tired all the time. When I spoke to my doctor about this, she said that a possible reason for this may be that my body absorbs the tablets better than the capsules. I don't know if that's the case or not, but I'm definitely going to stick with the tablets.
