make them, money saved for you. Moreover, the manufacturer doesn’t need to patent
the drug, since the earlier company’s patent has already expired. Hence the cost
which is saved is low and you get to buy the medicine for cheap.

would be the best judge for you, he would tell you what to take for which ailment and
also how many doses as well. You can even ask the doctor if the drug would result in
any side effects or not, and the doctor will inform you about the same. The ingredients
used by the generic drug manufacturer would be clinically tested and approved as
well, much like how it was with the branded versions.
