Folks have been arguing about this issue forever.
Actually, we have two issues
1. Change from the original (patent protected) version to a generic.
2. Differences between generics (one manufacturer versus another)
Note also that while the active ingredient of a 'pill' may well be the same, the formulation (of the pill) by different manufacturers may be different.
The FDA is supposed to certify generics and the plants where they are made, but may not always do the job, unfortunately.
As an aside, I take three prescription drugs (for cardiac issues) and have not noticed a difference when the insurance system forced a change from the original (non-generic) forms to generic ones, other than the shape or color of the pills.
