Is there a difference between a brand name and generic drug?
There is no difference in the active ingredients in the brand name or generic name. The only difference is the brand name is more expensive. The generic is the name of the drug. The brand name is the name a company gives the drug . An example is Bayer aspirin......the name Bayer is a company name but the main ingredient is aspirin. Aspirin is the drug. You can buy generic aspirin under its drug name Aspirin much cheaper . They both have the same effect.

Should Feldene or Epinephrine or Aspirin be capitalized?
Capitalise Feldene, because it is a trademarked name for a commercial product. Aspirin has lost its trademarked status in a number of countries and has become the generic name for acetylsalicylic acid, so in some cases it will be capitalised, and in others it won't. Epinephrine is a generic product and does not need capitalisation as far as I can tell.
