What are Generic Medicines?

A drug that imitates brand-name drugs with respect to effect, strength, form, dosage, quality, administration, and safety is known as Generic Medicine. FDA approval for prescription and consumption has to be obtained by a generic drug. A person can easily buy generic medicines either from a local drug store or online. The purchase of these generic medicines helps the patient in saving money on their medication bills. Generic medicines are cost-effective and hence are very popular in India.
