Default Re: Differences between generics :(

The release speed might be different.... even between different brands of the same med.

For example, I take nortriptyline from the bran "Norfenazin", it is a regular tablet. I cannot take the same dose from the brand "Paxitibi", it is a coated tablet that release the med more slowly.

It also makes a great different if it is a capsule instead of a tablet, which type of capsule (soft or hard).
