I don't do well with the generic. The bottle is bigger, the tip is longer and the bottle is harder to squeeze; therefore getting all the product out is difficult and I've actually jabbed my rectum trying. I hate the generic and it usually doesn't relieve my symptoms like Rowasa. Maybe it is psycological, but I have no other issues with other generic drugs.
When I told my pharmacist this, he said I was not the only one who has complained about the generic brand. And for me, it wasn't worth switching for the measly 20 dollars I saved.
