    Same medicine different company

    Is it possible to have different side affects of the same medicine made by a different company?

    Yes, especially with Generics.
    Medications are made up of active and inactive ingredients.
    The active ingredient is what treats the problem and should be the same from manufacturer to manufacturer. The inactive ingredient often varies and can sometimes include gluten or milk derivatives among others.
    The Pharmacist should be able to let you know what the inactive ingredients are in the medicine you're taking.

    This may explain it better:
