Learn the facts about generic drugs

Now, more than ever, it's important to watch our healthcare dollars and spend them wisely. One of the ways we can do that is by using generic drugs, when possible. In fact, more than half of all prescriptions filled today use generic drugs. Generic drugs use the same active (main) ingredient as brand-name drugs, and they go through extremely thorough testing. After they are approved for sale by Food and Drug Administration (FDA), they continue to be watched carefully.

Generic drugs are proven to be safe, high-quality and effective. Best of all, they can provide excellent value. Generic drugs almost always cost less than brand-name drugs. Learn more about generic drugs by choosing a topic.
