Generic Drugs, A Boon In Disguise

By Oliver Joseph

Most companies spend good dollars in marketing and advertising. And this means that you will end up spending extra money on healthcare. If you are wise enough, prepare yourself for an effective drug change from brand name drug to generic drug. Generic drug is the unadvertised brand approved by FDA as a safe and effective treatment option which helps your pocket too.

Generic drugs have the same active elements as that of the brand name drug. Each drug is laboratory tested to ensure the same amount of balance between brand name drug and generic drug. The only difference lies in the name and price.

Once the brand name drug manufacturer obtains a patent which is usually for 20 years, no other manufacturer can make the drugs till the patent expires. Other manufacturers apply to the FDA for generic drugs production approval just before the patent expires. The drug is then released into the market by various companies which make it competitive, forcing many to bring down the prices. Today 50 percent of the prescription drugs are generic drugs, popular among people who are unwilling to waste money. Since FDA doesn't allow generic drug to be the same as its original drug, you can notice a change in shape or color for the generic drug.

The largest organization of American doctors, The American Medical Association endorses generic drugs and recommends it to the people. Most hospitals in America routinely use generic drugs to treat people.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
