> Could it possibly be levofluoxetine? (Fluoxetine is really a mixture of "left-handed" and "right-handed" versions of the molecule (isomers)...some drugs such as Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine (or just d-amphetamine)), Eldepryl (l-selegiline or l-deprenyl), and Redux (d-fenfluramine) only contain one isomer). I think that l-fluoxetine is currently being researched for migraine. (Heard a rumor. :-)

James here....

Can you say "least patentable difference" ! Take at look at what is on the market in Europe...seems to me there is another version of Prozac there...perhaps the l- version. ( this did come from the back up tapes my brain keeps archived so I may be wrong !)
