    I thought some might be interested in this - I found a site of estimated dates of possible first time meds going generic - save money!

    The list starts in 2012 and goes all the way through 2017!

    Remember thought, they are just estimated dates that could change depending on patent litigation and/or other red tape.

    You're welcome

    I'm hoping that Provigil really does go generic in April because it's so rediculously expensive!

    Awsome Debbie-Thank you so much!

    I will ask about the Lexapro - I've been wanting to try this as I think it will treat my anxiety better than Celexa

    I've been thinking about asking my doc to switch me to Lexapro...I know I went totally bat-crazy on it before, but that was before i knew anything about bp or my BEING bp and i know a lot more now...anyways it could only help at this point...i'm tired of living in this rabbit hole!

    just remember guys, that these are just estimated dates and so may not be the exact month it says - but hopefully they are or are pretty close!

    Today, I called my local pharmacy re: Lexapro generic and they said yes it did go generic but they don't have any in yet and either do the other local pharmacies but they will have it soon, and that only Medco has it for now.
