Are generic prescription drugs really as good as brand name drugs?
"A" rated generics meet the same quality standards as brand name prescription drugs. A drug that is "A" rated by the FDA as a generic equivalent contains identical active ingredients as the brand name drug, the same dosage as the brand name drug, and delivers the same amount of drug to the bloodstream within the same amount of time. Other than the price, there is little difference, although the shape or color of the generic is likely to be different from the brand name.

How do I know if a generic is "A" rated?
Most pharmacies carry primarily "A" rated generics. Non- "A" rated generics are usually used only for conditions that are not life-threatening (such as decongestants, etc.), but the only way to know for sure is to ask your pharmacist.

Should I switch to a generic?
For both chronic and acute conditions, most people can safely fill a generic prescription and expect the same safety and effectiveness as the brand name drug. For some people it is important to remain consistent with the brand of medication being taken, so ask your pharmacist if your prescriptions should be filled with the same generic manufacturer. Get to know your medication - the size, shape, color and imprinting. If you notice any changes, be sure to ask. However, anytime you consider a change in your prescription you should discuss this with your pharmacist and your physician.

What if there is no generic available?
Generic prescription drugs are available only when the patent for the original brand name drug has expired. The patents for many popular brand name drugs have recently expired. However, if a generic is not available, there may be an alternative medication in the same pharmaceutical class that is less expensive or that does have a generic equivalent. Ask your physician if such an alternative would be right for you.

Can I save on drugs for my pets?
Yes. Many drugs for pets are also human drugs. Ask your veterinarian if there is a human equivalent and dosage for your pet. If so, your vet can write a prescription to be filled with your ScriptSave WellRx savings card at most of our participating pharmacies. Learn more.
