Question Generic Lexapro

Has anyone tried the new generic Lexapro yet? I've been taking Lexapro (10mg) for close to a year now. I've done well on it overall, but even with my insurance (which I'm not sure I'm going to stick with because of the high cost), it's $30 a month. I figure there is not much difference b/w Lexapro and the generic, but I've recently been reading here that some people have switched from original ADs to generics, and experienced bad side effects. What about generic Lexapro?

Re: Generic Lexapro

I used to take Lexapro. Twice before, once for a year, once for 3 years. Was off meds for the past 3 years, and just started taking the generic lexapro. Side affects seem similar to what I experienced on regular lexapro, maybe less severe even....but also some different ones. I've noticed some back pain more than usual. I'm not sure if it's the meds! The other side affects I've experienced similar to normal lexapro are: a but of muscle twitching, jaw clenching/chattering, a bit of dizziness. That's about it!
