Brief Answer:
They are exactly the same!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

They are exactly the same medications. The upper list are the brand names while the lower list are the generic forms. They are exactly the same. The generic form has the advantage of better less expensive while accomplishing the same goals as the more expensive branded ones.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
