Has anyone ever noticed a considerable difference between brand and generic drugs or specifically this med?
The FDA requires that brand and generic drugs be identical. The active ingredients are the same; the only possible difference is the inactive ingredients (dyes, binders, etc). Many times, the generic and the brand drugs are made by the same company.
