Generic Drug Information
Generic medications provide consumers with additional and more cost-effective options for the medications they need. Generic drugs are copies of brand name drugs that companies manufacture after the patent on the original brand name drug has expired. The process of manufacturing generic medications after patents expire on the original drug has been pursued for many years. The Food and Drug Administration directly monitors the approval and manufacturing of generic medications. Generic drugs must uphold the rigorous standards of the FDA before they are approved for use. Additionally, generics must contain the same active ingredients and be bioequivalent to the original version of the drug. Generic medications are tested to be both safe and effective before they are approved for sale.
There are no major differences between brand name drugs and generic drugs. The dosage, safety, active ingredients, side effects and medication forms are identical between brand name drugs and generics. There are numerous myths and pieces of misinformation about generics but the fact is that generic medications are approved and held to the same rigorous standards of the FDA as brand name medications. The only difference between generics and medications are the patents, marketing tactics and possibly the colors or flavors of the medications.
How are generics offered at such a discount than brand name drugs? Generic drugs are cheaper than brand name drugs because the manufacturing company of the generic versions of the drugs did not have to incur the expenses of the initial clinical research performed for the new drug, bringing the new drug to market and marketing the new drug. These costs are significant and the original drug’s manufacturer recoups these expenses by pricing the drug at point that makes the process profitable for them based on their investment. Generic manufacturers have lower costs to manufacture and bring the generic versions to market and these manufacturers pass these savings on to consumers by pricing their generic versions to be competitive.
Beyond the discount available by purchasing a generic equivalent of a brand name drug. HelpRx provides free prescription discounts on the generic drugs themselves. These discounts bring the cost of the generic equivalents even lower and can help you save hundreds of dollars every year.
