As far as I know, Nardil still comes in a brand version. It would be my guess that your pharmacy is giving you a generic version because they usually supply generics (if available) unless your doctor specifies that a generic can't be substituted for the brand version. Here's the labeling information for Pfizer's Nardil:

The inactive ingredients in the Greenstone phenelzine appear to be identical to those in Pfizer's Nardil, which doesn't come as a surprise with Greenstone being a subsidiary of Pfizer. With what I just wrote being the case, the Greenstone phenelzine shouldn't be any different from the Pfizer version. I haven't read enough reports from Nardil/phenelzine users to make a determination as to whether the Greenstone version of the medication tends to be superior to the Gavis version. I've read a report or two saying that the Gavis version is more effective than the brand version, but others have said that the Gavis version is no better. Unfortunately, I've only come across a limited number of reports comparing the different versions of Nardil/phenelzine that are currently available, so it's hard for me to conclude anything. Maybe someone who's come across more reports will be able to help you more.
