Hi Jane,

If you are covered by health insurance, I believe this too could be switched to generic Prozac by the pharmacists, unless a DAW is written by your doctor in the script. Of course, the issue of generic Prozac becomes moot if you are paying for your own prescription and prefers to continue with the more expensive brand name, Prozac. May be Cam can clarify this since this falls in his domain.
