Are genetic medicines always as reliable and effective as the trade name version? I'm trying to reduce medication costs - considering switching out Molipaxin for generic trazadone.

In brief: Generic

They are generally within 90% of the non generic equivalent .
Trazadone is an old generic and should be perfectly satisfactory

In brief: Generic or genetic?

Assume you are referring to generic medications versus brand name.
Although they are usually equivalent - there can be some differences. The amount of active agent isn't always identical and sometimes a person can react differently depending on what the carrier is.
