Let’s hear it!! Generic brands are finally getting the attention they deserve. Have you ever had a doctor prescribe a name brand and you found out how much it costs, then you asked for generic? Have you ever went to your local pharmacy, gave them the prescription and they come back with a generic saying it was less expensive? If you answered yes to either of those questions, you should keep reading.
I know my wife has gone to the pharmacy and they have given her a generic for her prescription. She has saved quite money each time. Let’s hear it for “GENERIC medications”. Why? Several reasons:
- Costs Less
- Does the same thing as name brand drugs
- May be more readily available than the name brand
- Active ingredient works in the same amount of time.
- Very low and usually affordable even for low income.
Have you ever heard, there’s always a way to get something done. That is very true, even when it comes to getting your medication!!
Look at what the American College of Physicians found out. Have you ever sat back and thought about your current health? Do you know it is easier to stay healthy than for people to try and get healthy? Granted I know this posts start out talking about the location of prescriptions. If you talk about one, you will end up talking about the other before the day is over.
