A very perceptive question. The extra emotionality is most probably due to the hormonal flux of pregnancy, and maybe all the hard work ! By law, any company which wants to manufacture and sell a generic version of an already known drug, has to produce scientific evidence that their product is biologically equivalent to the standard version. In other words, to establish that it's the same active chemical, in the same concentration, which ought to dissolve at the same speed, et absorbed the same, and so on. Occasionally, there might be very minor differences where there's some difference in how tightly the tablet is packed, etc., but such differences ought to be trivial. I have noticed, however, in someone used to citalopram ( a relative of Fluoxetine ) as the brand-name Cipramil, that they seem to be doing better since switching to the cheaper generic version Cilift.
