Yup. The generic paroxetine is demonstrably inferior to the name brand Paxil. My doctor has witnessed his patients relapse when they made the change from the name brand to the generic. I have heard of this phenomenon with paroxetine happening quite a few times.

It would be interesting to know why this difference exists. However, it is not terribly important to know how. That this difference exists has been documented.
