Generic Ditropan

Is Generic Oxybutynin Chloride as Good as Ditropan?

All generic medications must have certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generic versions are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns a rating to each one. An "AB" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the generic oxybutynin chloride versions currently available have an "AB" rating, which means they are considered equivalent to Ditropan.
 
However, generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients from the brand-name medication. This might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients, which may cause problems for people with certain allergies or sensitivities.
