just thought I would share my experience of this as, when I looked it up on internet, could find nothing. I started off on generic fluoxetine 20mg. After relatively mild initial side effects, was working well. Really started to feel more like myself again. However, after dodgy experiences on different sertraline generics ( some much better than others) I asked doc to put me on branded Prozac to be sure I got the exact same pill every time. He did so. I was off work for 2 days as I didn't sleep a wink for 4 days, had diahorrea and terrible joint pain. However, it settled down and I continued. But....joint pain never went away and I was aching all over, especially hips, knees and ankles. Anyway...tried to track down initial generic and I think I have. Went back onto Bristol Laboratories last week and aches have almost gone. Weird! I guess my questions are....has anyone else experienced this awful joint pain? Has anyone else found Prozac worse than generic? And does anyone find that particular generics are better than others? I know some will say that they are all bio-equivalent and should be exactly the same...but I know what my experience tells me.
thanks for reading x
