Generic drugs are FDA approved copies of brand-name drugs that have exactly the same dosage, intended use, effects, side effects, route of administration, risks, safety, and strength as the original drug. In some cases, these will look slightly different in color, shape or have different markings on the individual pill, however, it will not change the way the medication works.
If you would like to only receive a branded medication, your Doctor must write the prescription with the appropriate DAW ("Dispensed As Written") code. If the prescription has this code, then you will receive what the Doctor has specified.
