Hi all,
This may be a stupid question but, what is the difference between our meds? Ive never heard of most of the meds that people take on here. Do they just have different names? or are they comepletely different?
just wondering..

Different names mainly and you in the USA have more versions than we do, as the FDA licences mental health drugs quicker than Europe does.

Pharma usually applies for a licence in the US first as the market is bigger and if it does well there it's likely to go well elsewhere and there will be more data available to convince Europe.
