Yes. My insurance switched my name brand Strattera (a working non-stimulant) to the generic(atomoxetine). Two months later my productivity had decreased to the point where even my husband was concerned, see your doctor. After correcting and getting the name brand Strattera back I then get a notice from my insurance saying they will no longer supply the name brand Strattera. Can’t afford $800 out of pocket every 90 days, so I have to now find an alternative. My point – if the generic is suppose to be the same, why is there still the brand name? Some generics are not identical.
