After researching online and my own experience, camber sertraline works as well as greenstone.
I could only take greenstone, now I’m on brand name Zoloft. Walgreens has a card from Pfizer that saves me hundreds of dollars a month. After a year I’ll need to get my insurance and doctor to approve a tier reduction for the price of the brand name.

Hello J,

I have some bittersweet news to deliver. It turns out that Greenstone was the generic brand owned by Pfizer, which is the company that manufactuers the brand name Zoloft. On the bright side the pills are nearly identical only differing in color dye inactive ingredients. From what I read it was no longer in the companies best interest to continue manufacturing the generic and decided to only manufacture the brand name. If you were happy with the quality of the Greenstone brand then you will find that the Zoloft brand should work well with you unless you discover you have an allergy to the different color dyes.

For infomational purposes I will list the two different brands ingredients below so you can see for yourself how similar the two are.

Greenstone

Active Ingredients:

Sertraline Hydrochloride 25mg

Inactive Ingredients:

- Dibasic Calcium Phosphate Dihydrate
- D&c Yellow No. 10
- Fd&c Blue No. 1
- Fd&c Red No. 40
- Aluminum Oxide
- Hydroxypropyl Cellulose
- Hypromellose, Unspecified
- Magnesium Stearate
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
- Polyethylene Glycol, Unspecified
- Polysorbate 80
- Titanium Dioxide

Brand Name Zoloft

Active Ingredients:

Sertraline Hydrochloride 25mg

Inactive Ingredients:

- Dibasic Calcium Phosphate Dihydrate
- D&c Yellow No. 10
- Fd&c Blue No. 1
- Fd&c Red No. 40
- Hydroxypropyl Cellulose
- Hypromellose, Unspecified
- Magnesium Stearate
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
- Polyethylene Glycol, Unspecified
- Polysorbate 80
- Titanium Dioxide
- Aluminum Oxide

I hope this information helps. Best wishes.

Re: Kevin (# 1)

After Greenstone stopped making Sertraline, I had to switch over to Zoloft. After a short time I started getting strange feelings in my chest, upset stomach, dizziness, headaches. As time has gone by these symptoms continue to get worse. Within a hour or so after taking Zoloft is when these issues start. I took Sertraline made by Greenstone for more than ten years and had no side affects, unless I received the wrong brand other than Greenstone.

Feeling concerned. Has Greenstone started making this drug again? According to your itemized list of the two drugs they look identical.
