If I change my TKI brand, is it any issue for my blood count?

Since January 2017 I am taking Imatinib ( Veenat 400), brand name- Natco. Now if I want to change my Imatinib brand, that's name Imatinib (Imat 400) brand name- Zydus. Is it any large issue for me? Or any harmful for my blood count? Please suggest me. Thank you

As far as I am aware Generic Imatinib is the same ingredient (patent) so you should have zero changes in terms of response. But I had seen some people get other side effects when switching between generic brands of Imatinib. Maybe that’s due to different fillers and ingredients. But I could be wrong.
