Generic Drugs: How They Cost You Less?
If you are wondering why the chemist has charged much less than what you expected then it is not because he has developed sudden liking for you or the government decided to subsidized your medical bill.
It is possible because you are getting cheaper generic alternative of some expensive brand name medication. Still there are certain issues that need to be taken care of. Are generic drugs as safe as brand name drugs or why it is less expensive?
A generic drug is essentially an imitation of its brand name twin. Both should be bioequivalent in terms of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties. Generic drugs must have the same active ingredients as the name brand, but the inactive ingredients could be different. Inactive ingredients may include colors, preservatives, or other fillers. However, just because a generic has the same inactive ingredients it is not
automatically considered a generic equivalent.
Certainly Generic drug makes lazy. You don't stretch enough to reach the bottom of your pocket because it cost 25% to 60% less then its brand name counterpart. Generic drugs produced by smaller companies which don't spend enough on research and development. Pfizer spend a fortune in R&D to create Viagra- wonder drug to treat men erectile dysfunction.
Now its much cheaper version like Kamagra and Cialis are available which effectively wipe out the necessity to control libido.
Physician and medical expert agree that generic medicines can be expected to have the same therapeutic effect as brand-name drugs. Therefore, it makes sense to choose cheaper generics and rely on its credentials.
