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).

They are not as good. If you start on brand name stay on brand name. If you start on one brand of generic, stay on that brand of generic. Do not switch around. Topamax generic is notorious for not maintaining even dosage and can cause serious side effects and sickness.
