My doctor has had enough disappointments with generics that he won't even prescribe them anymore. The primary complication potentials he has seen involve prozac, celexa, zoloft, xanax, klonopin, lamictal, and neurontin. He insists on brand for those meds.

Basically what happens is a patient who has been stable begins to deteriorate. Everyone is puzzled why this is happening. With some investigation, it turns out the pharmacy substituted generic, without the patient or the doctor knowing about it. When switched back to brand, the patient restabilizes. It has happened hundreds of times, more than enough to not be a fluke or a coincidence.
