Does seraquel work in the same way as the generic sondate version?

- seroquel, sedation, quetiapine, side effect, generic
There is now a generic form of quetiapine which people i work with take. However they report more sedation and other side effects. Is there any evidence to suggest that other varieties made by sondate/teva are any different?

Hello SETOT. It depends on whom you would be talking to. Even in the world of generics, there are differences to be found amongst them. Some people are more sensitive to a given generic than another brand. Eegards, pledge

There shouldn't be any difference.
A generic drug is a drug that is exactly the same as the brand-name drug, but can only be produced after the brand-name drug's patent has expired.
A generic drug is the same as a brand-name drug in:
dosage, safety, strength, quality, the way it works, the way it is taken and the way it should be used.
