Is Generic Fluocinolone as Good as Derma-Smoothe?

All generic medications must undergo certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns a rating to each one.
 
An "AT" rating means the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the generic versions of fluocinolone oil currently available have an "AT" rating, meaning they should be equivalent to Derma-Smoothe.
 
However, generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients than the brand-name medication. This might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients that may cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.
