Dr I have a question to ask. Can generic drugs be off by just a couple of milligrams? I noticed when I use to take tramadol the brand worked better.

In brief: Generic

The amount of medication is the same and this is regulated well.
However there is a difference in the fillers to make the pills and that can influence how much of the medication is absorbed.
