Question Horrible generic medication experience should I contact the company

I had my Dilaudid 4 mg filled last week. My usual pharmacists was not on duty. When I got home I discovered that they had given me Mallinckrodt brand.

I could tell a different immediately. I waited several days and called my pharmacy. I contacted the pharmacists who usually fills my scripts. He apologized. I contacted my doctor and asked him to write another prescription.he told me that this has happen before with other patients. I am very happy with Ethex brand. I also contacted Ethex and thank them for an excellent product.
I am going to contact Mallinckrodt and complain about an inferior product. I feel that they do not care because most people do not take this medication on maintenance basis. I am going to also ask my pharmacist if he can order different brands to try. I am wondering if this would be out of line. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Mike
