    Hello and welcome – We’re fellow patients here, so can’t give advice on medications. In general, the active ingredient should be the same between brand & generic and between different generic manufacturers. However, the absorption could potentially be different. In fact, the medical guidelines recommend followup testing after you switch brands, switch to generic, or switch generic manufacturers.

    Hopefully, others here will chime in with their own experiences, but many patients do notice hair loss occurring when levels are swinging too high or too low.
