Are generic drugs similar to the originals?
In a nutshell – yes, they are. Generic drugs are exact copies of brand medicines in terms of their composition, effects, potency, safety and adverse events. Think of generic and brand drugs as of the same substance produced by different manufacturers
Why do generics look different from brand drugs?
Such attributes as color, shape, and lettering are all subject to copyright owned by the respective copyright holder. The bottom line is that if you spot a generic that looks like its brand counterpart, reconsider buying it, because it is a counterfeit product.
Are generics as safe and effective as their brand equivalents?
They most certainly are, and this is the basic point and the reason for them growing steady in popularity. As a matter of fact, pharmacists are allowed to give you generics in lieu of brand preparations, so this should answer all of your safety and efficacy related questions and lift every doubt you might still have had.
Generics cost so much less, how come?
There is solid logics behind the price formation for both generic and brand medicines; you be the judge of which of them is fairer. The price of the brand medicine is dramatically affected by research and developing stage, as well as other investing that is invariably involved in the process of manufacturing a new drug. More than that, flagman pharmaceuticals are constantly developing new drugs. By not lowering the price for their existing products (ever, even when the funds invested initially are won back by sales and the invention starts bringing profits) researching laboratories secure funding for their new discoveries.
Generic manufacturers, on the other hand, totally skip any investing other than materials and workforce, which naturally is reflected in the price of the final product. Whether or not you have a wish or financial possibility to help corporations invent new drugs is a matter of individual choice.
