Advice & Tips: I have taken both Prozac and the generic version, fluoxetine, at various times and in various doses. I believe, and my doctor and therapist agree, that the brand-name Prozac works better for me, with more consistent, reliable emotional stability and near-total relief from symptoms of depression. The cost is higher for brand-name Prozac, but IMO, it's worth it.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: emotional numbness or flatness
