Branded or Generic?

Valium By RocheBack of the bottle
Pharmaceuticals come in two forms. One comes from the original maker (the Company’s chemises that invented the drug) and the others are generics (none original). Let's take for example the chemical diazepam. The famous ROCHE Company invented it and they name it VALIUM. After many years of being approved by the F.D.A, they sometimes sell their "recipe" to other Drug makers to manufacture the medication in the condition that the trade name given for the medication. , “Valium” will not be use. To simplify things Valium is a brand name and diazepam is the chemical name (generic). Generic (Diazepam)
In my own point of view generic medications are not the same from the original maker, and different generics medications are also not the same. (In terms of psychotropic medications) Differences in the time the drug takes to take effect, the half-life of the medication are also different! So where’s is the ISO standard for all these medications !!.I don’t really know about the non psychotropic meds … but in terms of choosing between the Original and the generics, I will defiantly stick to the Branded ones.
After Note:Nitrazepam (Magadon) has hit the drug scene again about four years ago and it started out with doctors prescribing Nitrazepam from the manufacturer with a imprint that looks like an eight. (They called it Nitra 8 in the streets) and one with no imprint( so they called it Nitra blank) Most people prefer the one with no imprint , saying it better (faster onset, and shorter time reaching the plateau ). Does this show that the consistencies of the product that the manufacturers produce are not the same?
