What is the difference between Brands and Generics? Are Generic Drugs as good as Brand-Names?
Generic drugs are copies of brand-name drugs that have exactly the same dosage, intended use, effects, side effects, route of administration, risks, safety, and strength as the original drug. In other words, their pharmacological effects are exactly the same as those of their brand-name counterparts.
How are Generic drugs cheaper than Brand Name drugs?
Many people become concerned because generic drugs are often substantially cheaper than the brand-name versions. They wonder if the quality and effectiveness have been compromised to make the less expensive products. The FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) requires that generic drugs be as safe and effective as brand-name drugs.
Actually, generic drugs are only cheaper because the manufacturers have not had the expenses of developing and marketing a new drug. When a company brings a new drug onto the market, the firm has already spent substantial money on research, development, marketing and promotion of the drug. A patent is granted that gives the company that developed the drug an exclusive right to sell the drug as long as the patent is in effect. As the patent nears expiration other manufacturers apply to the FDA for permission to make and sell generic versions of the drug. Without the startup costs for development of the drug, other companies can afford to make and sell it more cheaply. When multiple companies begin producing and selling a drug, the competition among them can also drive the price down even further.
Why do the pills I received look different than the pills I get from my neighborhood pharmacy?
If you are used to buying the brand name pills and you have ordered the generic equivalent from us, the pills that we have sent you will look different; however, they will have the exact same chemical composition. Generics do not look the same as their brand name counterparts due to patent laws restricting generic manufacturers to produce a pill that "looks" exactly like the brand name drug. But the active ingredients in both preparations are always the same ensuring that both have the same medicinal effects.
Do Generic Drugs take longer to work?
Its a common misbelief that generic drugs take longer to work. The FDA requires that generic drugs work as fast and as effectively as the original brand-name products.
