    Hi Hilldon. Any generic brand I have purchased has worked as well as the brand name. The only difference is the price.

    ^Yes, exactly!

    If the generic brand has (X) milligrams of (Y) compound, it will work exactly the same as a more expensive name brand that contains (X) milligrams of (Y) compound. With bigger companies, you pay more because of the increased advertising and the prestige they peddle. It's just a marketing gimmick.

    The only time a company has a monopoly over something is if they have a patent on a particular chemical. I can't really think of one of these from the top of my head, though. But with the rate technology is going, I'm sure there are a few. And if there aren't, there will be eventually.

    Generic products are available when the original development patent has expired. This opens the market for other companies to make the product. A generic product must contain the same active ingredient and meet the same standard in strength, dosage, etc
