Like Acetaminophen/Paracetemol is Generic name and it has different brand names like Tylenol, Acimol, Crocin, Calpol etc. All these Brand names contain the same Paracetemol, but the medications are manufactured by different companies, so the different brand names.

The Generic medicine has same properties as branded medicine in terms of uses, indications, doses, side effects, so no need to worry on that.
