Generic medications have to be approved by the fda and are essentially the same as branded medication.
Some differences in the coloring, medication carriers and how actual meds are presented may cause side effects including allergic reactions or alter clinical responses to some degree. The active ingrediant may vary by as much as 10% above or below branded ingrediant, effective, different but safe.
