Phenobarbital - different manufacturers

Ziggy is very sensitive to medication and seems to do well on only one brand of generic Keppra. However, today when I picked up his phenobarbital the vet furnished a different brand of phenobarbital - does anyone have experience with changing brands? As to the Keppra, I have gone to great lengths to obtain the same generic, Camber. It does not mean that Camber is worse or better than another generic but it is the only generic that does not upset Ziggy's stomach and seems to control his seizures best. People with seizures have commented on different generics of Keppra but I cannot find any input as to different generics of phenobarbital.

Thank you.

I found the same phenobarbital at CVS and had the vet write a prescription but next month I might try the vet's generic.
