Generic Vs Branded Drugs



The Generic drugs are similar to branded drugs in terms of dosage, intended use, effects, side effects, route of administration, risks, safety, strength and therapeutic efficacy.

people usually thought that generic drugs are cheaper in quality and therapeutic effect as compared to branded drugs. But it is totally baseless thought as Generic drugs are made under the same applicable standards and conditions as in case of branded medicines. There is no compromise with the quality and effectiveness of generic medicines to make it less expensive product. The Generic drugs are as safe and effective as branded drugs.

When a drug manufacturing company introduces a new drug into the market, the firm has to spent a lot on research, development, marketing and promotion of the drug. On the other hand, the generic drugs are cheaper only because the drug manufacturing company has not to expense on above mentioned programmes. The generic version of a drug may have different colors, flavors, or combinations of inactive ingredients than the branded medicines, but the active ingredients must be the same in both generic V/s branded preparations, ensuring that both have the same medicinal effect.
