The value of generics

Generic drugs are “copies” of brand name drugs and much lower in cost. They have the same effect since they:

  • Have the same ingredients
  • Are the same strength
  • Come in the same doses
  • Are taken in the same way such as in pill or liquid form
  • Work the same

For the most part, the cost of a generic drug is 80 to 85 percent lower* than the brand name product. Ask your doctor if a lower-cost generic drug will work for you.
