Could be! That's generally the trend though, if there's only one generic for a product then it is only slightly cheaper than brandnamed is. It takes many generics for a product to drive down prices.
I was doing a little quick research, cuz I never heard of Oceanside pharm before as a generic manufacturer. Bear with me for a moment as this gets a little convoluted.
1.) Oceanside is owned by Valeant pharm.
2.) Valeant Pharm owns Salix.
3.) Salix makes Apriso.
So, I think this is a roundabout
way of saying that this new generic of Apriso is likely the same as the brandnamed, maybe even made in the same assembly line. Exactly what Shire did with Lialda, they made their own "generic" which is the same thing as the brandname :-p
Not 100% certain of the above conclusion as it was the brainchild of about
1.5 minutes of googling. I'd have to see the pill codes on generic apriso and see if it is identical to the brandnamed.
Here's the real kicker though, Apriso was initially approved in the USA in 1987, and now 32-years later, the first generic is finally approved for it <_<.
