My husband is a pharmaceutical technician, and has told me that, legally, the brand name and generic medications have to contain the same ingredients, same potencies, and the same exact chemical makeup. I'm sure there are some exceptions, and the laws may not be the same everywhere. But it may be something to keep in mind. I hope this helps.
I have been on Klonopin for years for panic attacks, anxiety and stress! My doctor recently authorized for me to have the brand name, instead of the generic I usually received every month. I noticed a big change! Good luck to all
