Hi Fachad,

Don't know for sure but I believe Barr Labs, the first Prozac generic manufacturer is ready to ship them out as soon as Lilly's stronghold patent on Prozac expires, August 2001.

Barr Labs has the exclusive rights for the first 6 months to manufacture generic Prozac. Incidentally, Barr Labs is the same company that sued Lilly regarding manufacturing generic Prozac couple of years ago. Lilly paid them off, I believe $4 million, to shut up. Hence, Lilly's patent on Prozac was extended.
