I would recommend you talk to your pharmacist. Remember, they studied all about drugs, and they should know the manufacturers, etc.

I am in Canada, so it might not be the same in the states. With the clonazepam that i take, it is every bit as effective as the Rivotril (canadian brand name) is.

My pharmacist and I discussed generics vs Brand names, and now, in a lot of cases, the generic,is identical to the Brand name, right down to the same manufacturer makes them, they use one name for the generic, and another for the Brand name. This isn't the best explanation i have ever made, so try to follow, inspite of my poor wording.

Once the patent has expired, and a generic can be sold, the drug companies know that it will be done. In that case, the company can still make money by packaging the same stuff (they sell under the brand name) using the generic. IE, the same company gets all the sales from the Brand name, and.. ta-da is also able to pick up the sales that go generic.

I hope this isn't just a canadian thing, and it isn't true for everything, but get to know your pharmacist, and ask these questions. I find out more by talking to mine than i ever imagined.
