Why should we go for Generic Substitutes

05-08-2017      Generic Medicines

Your doctor has prescribed a drug but that particular brand isn’t available in the medical store (or is too expensive). The store chemist, in this case, may look at the chemical composition of the drug and then suggest alternative medicines that have the same salts as the one mentioned in your prescription. For instance, if the doctor has prescribed Crocin, a branded drug commonly used to treat fever and pain, the main salt in the drug is Paracetamol. The chemist may thus suggest another drug – branded or unbranded – that has similar amount of Paracetamol. Unbranded (generic) medicines are generally more affordable and effective but some doctors may prefer prescribing branded Medicines Because the Generic Salts are Not That Convenient to be prescribed.

Are The Generic substitutes Effective

You will be surprised to know that all the Big Pharmaceutical brands like CIPLA RANBAXY Etc have their generic substitutes as well which are significantly cheaper and the chemical composition is the same as the PRESCRIBED Drugs which is tested and approved so there is no question of lower efficacy.

Do all salts have generic substitutes
