Generic Medicine Resources
With every prescription that you have filled with a generic, you get the same medicine as the brand, with the same quality and same result, but at a much lower cost.
For more than 25 years, America's generic pharmaceutical industry has been providing Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved generic versions of brand medicines at a savings to consumers of 30% to as much as 80%. By asking your doctor or pharmacist if there is a generic version of your prescription, you can reduce your health care costs while receiving the same quality of care.
Millions of Americans are using generics to treat a variety of medical conditions, including infection, heart disease and cancer. Generics are rigorously tested by the FDA and must prove that they are the same medicine with the same active ingredient, strength and dosage as their brand-name counterpart. Today, there are thousands of generic drugs available and all are manufactured and inspected under the same strict quality guidelines as a brand.
