Generic vs Brand Name Accutane

Hey all-

I came across this article about how in a lot of cases generic drugs aren't the same as their brand name counterparts. It was even stated that Ranbaxy failed to report patient complaints from their generic version of accutane, which is Sortet.

"According to hundreds of pages of documents Self obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, FDA inspectors would eventually find that Ranbaxy delayed telling regulators for months about impurities in its version of the epilepsy drug gabapentin. The company also either failed to report or reported late about complaints from patients taking fluoxetine, generic Accutane and sleeping pills."

Here's the link to the article - check it out if you have some time. I took Sotret for six months but if I ever have to do it over again I think I'm going with brand name Accutane from Roche. No point in taking any risk with an already dangerous drug.
