Generic Drug Names


Medicines are prescribed (by doctors) by brand name not by the generics (Ingredients). Hence we end up paying more money for the same medicine. The following websites help you find substitutes for branded drugs – just enter the name of the drug and the substitutes will be shown to you, many of them at even half the price!

Here are some of the websites which give you the substitutes:

http://www.medindia.net/drug-price/

http://www.emedexpert.com/lists/brand-generic.shtml

Please take advantage of the substitutes.

And please, please check with your doctor before taking the substitutes. The information given is only to create awareness and not for self medication.
