Doubt it: The FDA requires that generics have at least 95% of the same drug activity as any brand name drug. Some patients swear there is a difference but we know there is a potential this falls within the 30% placebo effect even sugar pills may have. I never go brand if a generic is available.

May be no difference: ''FDA requires generic drugs to have the same active ingredient, strength, dosage form, and route of administration as the brand-name drug” REF: https://www.fda.gov/media/83670/download
