Frequently Asked Questions
While the colour and inscriptions on the medications may differ, the generic and brand name medications are essentially the same. Generic drugs are usually more cost-effective and more readily available. When your medication is changed from the brand to generic ensure that the dose of the active ingredient is the same for both drugs.
This depends on the type of medication and whether it is considered extended-release, delayed-release or many other factors. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice on specific medications as they all may vary.
