Availability of Generic Qualaquin

Generic Qualaquin is available in one strength -- Quinine sulfate 324 mg capsules. It is made by various manufacturers, such as:
 
  • Mutual Pharmaceutical Company, Inc., the same company that makes brand-name Qualaquin
  • Teva Pharmaceuticals USA.

It is exactly the same as Qualaquin in every way, except it comes in a bottle with a generic name.
 

Is Generic Quinine Sulfate as Good as Qualaquin?

All generic medications must undergo 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 generics 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. The generic Qualaquin versions currently available have an AB rating, meaning that they should be equivalent to Qualaquin.
