In theory and by definition, generics should have the exact same active ingredients... However, the reality is that some generics 'behave' differently and in the worst cases don't work. I have to stress that this is uncommon but as medication is not generally expensive in AU; This sorts of things only cost AU $6.10.
In the USofA you should report strange effects about generics to the FDA (make sure you include the batch number).
