Dr. Thomas, why have so many patients been reviewing and reporting that switching from brand name Lexapro (escitalopram) to generic has caused adverse reactions?

Dr. Thomas, why have so many patients been reviewing and reporting that switching from brand name Lexapro (escitalopram) to generic has caused adverse reactions?

However, it is possible to have a reaction to the inert substances used in the formulation of generic lexapro (escitalopram). If you are buying generic Lexapro (escitalopram) on the internet, there's no guarantee of purity, efficacy, or adverse reaction rates. ...Read more

Can geodon (ziprasidone) cause voices? As soon as the voices started I got penile numbness. Taper off seroquel celexa. Taking ativan to sleep along with geodon (ziprasidone).

Not cause, but: This medication is meant for severely psychotic Schizophrenic symptoms. Hearing voices would be a strong possibility for these people and it might not be easy to untangle the illness from side effects since I've heard that 'voices' can be more noticed on the drug. Definitely talk to your Dr. Don't self-manage meds - ever! They need to be responsible to you. You deserve good care. I hope you get it ...Read more
