I feel that the medicine I got could be a generic posed as Cipralex. I don't know how likely that is, but it seems to me something that could happen, since, at least in the U.S., generics are soooo much cheaper than the original. I would think generics would be easy for the company to obtain, and very cheap to re-sell.
I'm still not sure what to do. I dread calling my doctor's office. I hesitate to fully leave it up to them (which is my only choice if I call them) and end up with something else. I'm thinking of going w/a higher dose of elavil or else trying citralopram (I still have it in the cupboard) at a 5mg dose during the day (since it interfered with my sleep). I even may not give up on Cipralex - it does seem pretty unlikely it's an illegitimate medicine (not Cipralex in general, but what I received)...
