Has anyone tried generic Differin?

While I was in the process of calling different pharmacies to find a cheaper price for Differin, I was told it is now available in generic form. I've been using it for about 4 years now, and I've got to say, I was thrilled to hear that (I don't have insurance so it costs about $280 for 45 grams). I realize generic medications are held to the same standards as name brand, but with that said, I'm still feeling a little unsure about it. The active ingredient is the same, but I'm wondering if the solution it comes in will be the same, too. Has anyone here tried it yet? I'm going to need a refill soon, and the generic is about $130 less than the name brand, so of course I'm very tempted!

havent tried it, but have you considered buying online from a canadian pharmacy? i recently used northwestpharmacy and they were great. you just have to fax or scan your prescription.
