I have successfully taken Rhinocort Aqua for years and was give Budesidine by Walgreens as a generic instead. Is it exactly the same? Could there be differences in side effects?

In brief: Generic drugs

Generic medications by FDA standards have to meet the same dosage of active ingredient as the Brand Name drug.
There should no side effect differences between the two medications (as they are usually caused by the active ingredient) Good Luck
