What is a generic drug?
These are medications that contain the same active ingredients and concentrations of the name-brand products but will differ often in shape, color, size, markings and the non-active fillers. We have carefully selected these products to ensure that you are purchasing only the highest quality generic products. By choosing to buy a generic you are not buying an inferior medication; rather, you are simply choosing to save money on a product that has the same therapeutic effect to the name-brand equivalent. Some of the quality generic products that we offer are more popular than the name brands. If you would like more information on these products please don’t hesitate to contact us.
