    Hi, No!!! There is no difference between generic for Carafate and brand Carafate and we are not selling Generic for Carafate rather we are supplying another brand from another manufacturer which consist of the same chemical ingredients which are present in brand Carafate and which also gives you identical effect as what brand Carafate does.
