Our expert says:
The problem with some generics are that although they contain the same "ingredients" the manufacturer don't always follow exactly the same "recipe" causing a difference in absorbtion and effectiveness. Some generic drugs are made by the "original" company e.g. Ponstan and Ponstel and there is usually no difference between the two. Usually the bigger and well known pharmaceutical companies have generic products that is fine to use.
I have also noticed in practice that especially with the generic of Lasix and some asthma pumps that the original is better to use!
