Generic Sertraline available

The antidepressant Sertraline (Lustral) is now available as a generic following the patent expiry.

The availability of generics encourages greater competition and pushes down the price of drugs. This will be of benefit to those who prescribe Sertraline as generic.

Action: Prescribing of Sertraline should be done generically to ensure maximum cost-efficacy. Fluoxetine and Citalopram are still reasonable first choices where an antidepressant is considered necessary.
