Generics - Are They All The Same?

Recommended Posts

So, obviously the generics are supposed to be the same exact formulation as the original sertraline. However in your experience are there any manufacturers to avoid? Have any bad experience on the generic vs the original?

FDA allows a wide margin of active ingredient content- something like 80% to 120% of the brand name formula. So the generic version can be weaker. Also, the inactive ingredients can be different. If you start with a generic and get level on it, there shouldn't be an issue. If you switch from name-brand to generic, you might need to increase the dose. You also might feel effects switching from one manufacturer to another.

I'm currently taking TEVA SERTRALINE after 5 weeks of taking Lustral.

I had no issues with TEVA SERTRALINE. I feel it's even stronger than Lustral. (the dosage is exactly the same-50 mg).

However, Before I tried TEVA SERTRALINE I tried another generic, which caused me great suffer, I didn't notice it contains Lactose (40 mg).
