Simply put a generic drug is a branded drug that uses a different name. You would probably recognize some of the names. The brand Tylenol has a generic called acetaminophen or Paracetamol. Zantac is the brand name for generic Ranitidine which helps people with acidity and indigestion. Sildenafil Citrate, used by patients suffering from erectile dysfunction, is the generic name for the brand Viagra. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers a generic drug to be “identical, or bioequivalent, to a brand name drug in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use.” But generic drugs cost less than their branded/innovator counterparts, and with the ever increasing cost of healthcare, choosing generic alternatives to your branded drugs, may be one way to keep costs down.
