"Crashed on generic"

A review of Smithkline Beecham Pharmaceuticals by Anonymous written on Thursday 7th of September 2006


Twice my pharmacy inadvertently gave me generic eskalith CR and twice my mood dropped out of the comfortable range and I became depressed. As soon as I discovered the mistake, I reported it to my doctor who repeated that the brand-name must be used. Within a week of resuming the brand name Eskalith CR, my mood went back into the healthy range for me. I am a psychotherapist. I went 30 years without an accurate diagnosis. For the past 10 years, I have been highly functioning on this medication at the level of 450mg. per day.

Is there a way to continue on Eskalith CR brand name?.
