In brief: Yes

There is no difference in how effective they are.
Always go for the cheaper, generic drug when you have a choice in over the counter medicines.

In brief: Generic drug

Yes the store brand is as good as a brand name drug.
If you look at the boxes side by side you will see that the main chemical ingredient is the same.
