What does the term “generic” mean?
Generic drugs are produced and distributed without patent protection. A generic contains the same active ingredients as the brand pills and is identified by its chemical name rather than its brand name. Generic Drugs are manufactured by the certified producer but not by the original drug’s producer. Generic drugs can be issued when the brand-name equivalent’s patent expires. Upon the original medicine’s patent expiration any pharmaceutical company can obtain a right on its production and purchase a chemical formula.
Why do generic medicines cost less than brand ones?
Unlike generic drugs, a large part of the costs incurred by original manufacturers of brand name drugs are for research and development and advertising. Companies, manufacturing generic medicines do not have to invest in any research and development or pay for advertising and marketing. It is only necessary to purchase a chemical formula to produce a generic drug. Consequently, you get world-class drugs at a reasonable price!
What is the quality of generic drugs?
