> > I have been using Selegiline oral form and after 5 weeks I am noticing its affect. It does help with depression, but it causes insomnia. There was a BIG difference between name brand and generic. I hated the name brand and the price, the generic was alot cheaper and alot better.I am taking 25mgs a day. It did take a long time before I noticed it was working.

> Lynne could you elaborate on the difference between brand and generic? Why so much difference? Aren't they the same thing? I don't get it. Help me out here. When you say brand name, what was it called? What is the generic called? How were they different?

I hope someone who knows more about generic vs. name-brand issues replies to your post. I think there is sometimes a difference in the bioavailability of the drug to the target tissues. Although the active ingredient (selegiline) may be the same, the generic drug might use different binders and fillers that affect absorption into the blood-stream. I'm sure there must be other reasons as well.
