> Gee,
> This will be just in time. Forest Labs will lose exclusivity on Celexa soon. The generics will come out and whammo! They have another drug. "The new and improved Celexa!" They can milk this profiteering wave for another ten years.
> Does anyone else find this disgusting? Those of us who currently take Celexa are taking an inferior product to the new one. The new one only includes the effective S isomer. It produces less side effects and you have to take less of the stuff.
> Will insurance companies allow us to switch to the less side-effect producing "New and Improved Celexa" or will they force us to take generic citalopram because it's cheaper? What about those without insurance? Surely all they might be able to afford is the inferior version of Celexa....
> Why don't we see this for what it is... It's a marketing ploy to keep Forest Labs' profits up. They cannot admit that they are making an inferior product and correcting the mistake they made. Why should we pay for their lack of research on a form that would produce less side-effects and be more efficacious?
> Does anyone else find it disconcerting that those of us who use Celexa are taking a form of the drug that includes an isomer that does not do anything for our depression but it ADDS to the side-effect profile? Does anyone else find Forest Labs sudden "discovery" at all suspicious?

>why limit it to celexa and forest labs..this probably applies to many AD's
