Generic drugs are medications created to be the same as an already marketed brand-name drug in dosage form, safety, strength, quality, and intended use. As such, you can take a generic medicine as an equal substitute for its brand-name counterpart. Generic medicines also tend to be cheaper than their branded counterparts, while providing the same effects and benefits.
