The difference is when you get generic you never know what your getting different companys make the generic brand and some can make you really sick or not even work at all. Its always safe to get the brand name if you can but when it comes to insurance or not having any at all it can be difficult to purchase the name brand. Hope this was useful michelle.

I agree with you anonymous.
I have been on these for 10+ years and several of the generic types of lortab simply do not work as well for me as the name brand although I do not claim to understand why, it certainly makes a difference for me. Everyone is different and I understand that. An example for myself, I enjoy cheese however there is a profound difference for me between Kraft cheese or Velveeta and a generic version.Granted they are both cheese a but something is definitely different and not as palatable. I realize we're Not talking about food this is merely an example.I hope this helps.I believe that the pharmacies try to push generic drugs on people to save money but at what expense if the consumer or patient does not benefit as much from the generic then is it really a savings? To further my opinion I posed the question to anyone if there is no difference at all between generic and name brand medications then why do they offer a generic form? I will always continue to request the name brand for myself good luck everyone.
