Generic drugs are identical to or the "bio-equivalent" of a brand-name drug in dosage form, safety, strength, quality, how it is taken, performance and intended use.
It is recommended to use one formulation of a brand or generic drug consistently to achieve the best results. This is particularly true for cardiovascular drugs, antimicrobials, proton-pump inhibitors, levothyroxine (ie. Synthroid), & antiepileptic drugs (ie. Topamax, Lamictal).
Absolutely. Both brand-name and generic drug facilities meet the same standards of good manufacturing practices. In fact, an estimated 50% of generic drug production actually comes from brand-name companies. These companies frequently make copies of their own or other brand- name prescription drugs, but sell them as generics.
Essentially, yes. 98% of people who take generic drugs experience positive results.
US trademark laws do not allow a generic drug to look exactly like the brand-name drug. However, while colors, flavors and other inactive ingredients may be different, the drug must duplicate the active ingredient.
New brand-name drugs are developed under a patent, giving the company the sole right to sell the drug during the patent period. During this time, a drug company charges more for a brand- name drug to recover the costs of developing the drug, which also includes research, marketing and promotion. When the patent expires, other manufacturers can begin to produce and sell generic versions of the brand-name drug.
Because these manufacturers don't have the same research and development costs, they can afford to sell their product at substantial discounts. Also, with more products in the market, there is more competition, which keeps the prices down.
No. Currently only half the drugs on the market are available in generic form. The other half are protected under patents, allowing only one company to produce them.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist. Ask for prescriptions for generic drugs whenever possible.
