/drugs1.jpg" alt="" width="240" height="300" hspace="5" vspace="7" align="right">The Benefits - Affordability and Assurance 
The main benefit of generic medicine can be felt in your pocketbook. Brand-name drugs cost more because their prices reflect the drug companies' attempts to recoup the costs of research, development, testing and expensive marketing and campaigns. Once generic medicines go on the market, they ride on the reputation of their brand-name counterparts, requiring much less overhead to produce and advertise and passing the savings along to the consumer. Plus, more availability of a drug drives prices down and keeps them low. And the benefits don't stop there. Each FDA-approved generic drug is required to be as effective and contain the same active ingredients of its brand-name counterpart. This assurance lets you know that you're not wasting your money on an alternative that is merely cheap, but that isn't as effective or safe as name-brand.

The Drawbacks - Availability and Ambiguity
If you're looking for a generic version of every medication, you might be out of luck. Long patent terms mean that every drug does not yet have a generic counterpart. Consumer demand does play a role, but you might get caught waiting for a generic drug that won't get approved for the general market for years. In addition, though the safety of generic drugs is undisputed, their absorption may vary from brand-name drugs due to different non-active ingredients. Though generic drugs are required to have the same active elements, the form in which that active drug is delivered may vary in generic drugs, affecting the absorption time, although not necessarily the effectiveness, of the generic. In summary, generic drugs are a good alternative to brand-name medications, but may not be readily available and may vary slightly from their mainstream counterparts. Still, there's a reason that over half of the in the United States are for generic medications - they are proven to be safe and effective, and lower prices make for happy - and healthy - consumers.

Generic Drugs:
What You Need to Know

When the pain reliever acetaminophen was developed in the 1950s, it was only available under its brand name, Tylenol. Today, acetaminophen can be found in many generic and store-brand versions. Similarly, many drug products, prescription and over-the-counter, have generic versions available. An estimated 44 percent of all prescriptions in the United States are filled with generic drugs.

New drugs are developed by innovator firms. Patents protect these companies' investments by giving them the sole right to sell the drug while the patents are in effect. When patents or other periods of exclusive marketing for brand-name drugs are near expiration, manufacturers can apply to the Food and Drug Administration to sell generic versions.

Generic drugs are safe, effective and FDA-approved. According to Gary Buehler, M.D., director of the FDA's Office of Generic Drugs, "People can use them with total confidence."

Here are some frequently asked questions about generic drugs and answers from the FDA:

Q: What are generic drugs?

A: A generic drug is a copy that is the same as a brand-name drug in dosage, safety, and strength, how it is taken, quality, performance, and intended use.

Q: Are generic drugs as safe as brand-name drugs?

A: Yes. The FDA requires that all drugs be safe and effective. Since generics use the same active ingredients and are shown to work the same way in the body, they have the same risks and benefits as their brand-name counterparts.

Q: Are generic drugs as strong as brand-name drugs?

A: Yes. The FDA requires generic drugs to have the same quality, strength, purity and stability as brand-name drugs.

Q: Do generic drugs take longer to work in the body?

A: No. Generic drugs work in the same way and in the same amount of time as brand-name drugs.

Q: Why are generic drugs less expensive?

A: Generic drugs are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have the investment costs of the developer of a new drug. New drugs are developed under patent protection. The patent protects the investment--including research, development, marketing, and promotion--by giving the company the sole right to sell the drug while it is in effect. As patents near expiration, other manufacturers can apply to the FDA to sell generic versions. Because those manufacturers don't have the same development costs, they can sell their product at substantial discounts. Also, once generic drugs are approved, there is greater competition, which keeps the price down. Today, almost half of all prescriptions are filled with generic drugs.

Q: Are brand-name drugs made in more modern facilities than generic drugs?

A: No. Both brand-name and generic drug facilities must meet the same standards of good manufacturing practices. The FDA won't permit drugs to be made in substandard facilities. The FDA conducts 3,500 inspections a year to ensure standards are met. Generic firms have facilities comparable to those of brand-name firms. In fact, brand-name firms are linked to an estimated 50 percent of generic drug production. They frequently make copies of their own or other brand-name drugs but sell them without the brand name.

Q: If brand-name drugs and generics have the same active ingredients, why do they look different?

A: In the United States, trademark laws do not allow a generic drug to look exactly like the brand-name drug. However, a generic drug must duplicate the active ingredient. Colors, flavors, and certain other inactive ingredients may be different.

Q: Does every brand-name drug ha
ve a generic counterpart?

A: No. Brand-name drugs are generally given patent protection for 20 years from the date of submission of the patent. This provides protection for the innovator who laid out the initial costs (including research, development, and marketing expenses) to develop the new drug. However, when the patent expires, other drug companies can introduce competitive generic versions, but only after they have been thoroughly tested by the manufacturer and approved by the FDA.

Q: What is the best source of information about generic drugs?
A: Contact your physician, pharmacist, or insurance company for information on your generic drugs..
