DRUGS SEARCH

Though chemically identical to Branded counterparts, Generic drugs have never got the same publicity as Branded drugs. It is comparable to Branded Drugs in terms of dosage form, strength, quality and performance. It is basically referred to any drug under its chemical name without advertising. Generic drugs are subject to the regulations of the governments of countries where they are dispensed. Generic drugs bear the name of the manufacturer and contain the same active ingredients as the original formulation. 

 

Generic drugs are in no way inferior to brand-name drugs. They are just less expensive. Generic drug manufacturers do not spend money on advertisements as the Branded Companies do so they pass on the savings to the general mass. Generic and store-brand drugs also pass through the rigorously tested, well-formulated, and effective procedure as brand names.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), generic drugs are identical or within an acceptable bio-equivalent range to the brand-name counterpart with respect to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties.

 

The core difference between generic drugs and the branded ones is promotion. The branded companies spend a huge amount of money for marketing, advertising and often development of a drug. Generic manufacturers have no such cost so they pass on the savings to consumers. Researchers have analyzed shopping data from 100,000 households and found that physicians, nurses, and pharmacists were far likelier than the average consumer to choose generic drugs. Among average consumers, 71% of the headache remedies they purchased were generic brands; among pharmacists, it was nearly 90%. They prefer Generic drugs as it is effective and cheap.

 

As per the concern of Health professionals and consumers, it can be assured that FDA approved generic drugs to have met the same rigid standards as the innovator drug. Generic drugs must contain the same active ingredients as the innovator drug, have the same use indications, be identical in strength, dosage form and route of administration to get approved from FDA. So Generic drug can be trusted and consumed without any second thought.
