I agree with inbako. I believe that not all generics are the same. Each manufacturer can have different ingredients for the same generic drug. Some people have adverse reactions to the generic med and or it does not work as well. I disagree that the generic works the same as the brand name. When a drug goes generic it seems more people post that it is not working the same or they are having side effects they did not have before on the brand name.
franjb1949... in a word, absolutely... in my career i worked for 2 pharmaceutical companies, one big pharma & the other a very small & unrelatively unheard of company though very wealthy & powerful nonetheless... specifically, i worked in both clinical trials & more recently, regulatory operations, where i processed much submission documentation, which is basically all supporting documentation required by the FDA for any drug company to have its drug/compound FDA-approved. though the percentage difference acceptable in generic versions of drugs is miniscule, the variant in inactive ingredients (aka fillers) can pack a powerful difference in individual side effects. most notably as indicated in many trial results that are rarely if ever published, inefficacy & headaches are the top 2 reported side effects.
