both company medicines are same, you can buy any one which is less costly
side effects of sorafenib and call your doctor at once if you have:

mouth sores;

pale skin, feeling light-headed, rapid heart rate, trouble concentrating;
chest pain and severe dizziness, fainting, sweating, swelling, rapid weight gain, feeling short of breath (even with mild exertion);
rash, blisters, oozing, or severe pain in the palms of your hands or the soles of your feet;
upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes);
sudden weight loss, increased appetite, trouble sleeping, increased bowel movements, feeling hot, feeling nervous or anxious, swelling in your neck (goiter);
