A lot of the time, if you are in the United States, many manufacturers make the same generic drug once the patent on the brand runs out. That is why you can get same medication at the same pharmacy every time and every time they can look different. Each Manufacturer has their own way they make the medication and the can make it whatever color they want. I don't know if that helped or not, but if you are concerned about the colors of the medications then go and talk to the pharmacist! They will be able to tell you if they use multiple manufacturers.
Here in the USA, it has been my experience that the white ones are .25mg, peach colored ones are .50mg and blue ones are 1.0mg. These are the ones I have been prescribed and the same is true for the generic version. Brand is football shaped and generic is round. I do not know which manufactuer makes these, but, I do know it is the same, colors, mg, etc wherever I fill my prescription. Hope this is of some help. Best wishes, Chelle
