In general terms, no. It is possible that they look different because the VA does major acquisition of drugs using the request for proposal process. This allows the original manufacturer and all of the generic manufacturers to compete against each other so that the VA can get the best price. As an example, depending on who won the contract for Flexeril, patients might receive from the VA pharmacy a yellow pill in the shape of a homeplate, a round yellow pill, or a round white pill. The round pills were the generic version of Flexeril. Hope this helps.
