Drug products that contain the same medication but are manufactured by different companies are known as generics. Generic drugs – which may look, taste, or be packaged differently, and may have different brand names – can be substituted for one another.
The generics used by our pharmacies have been approved by our Drug Evaluation Department to ensure they are of maximum quality. The generics must also meet the standards for quality, safety, and effectiveness of the Federal Food and Drug Administration.
If your prescription has been filled with a generic, it will be noted on your prescription label.
