There are essentially the same form of the drug, likely from a different maker that brands the wording differently. Sometime a change in the maker can produce some difference in effect, but all are required to be at 95% the same basic drug.

Generic drugs differ from brand to brand secondary to varying manufacture. These side effects can vary. Please let your doctor know what has occurred as an appeal may be useful
