Using Generics

Today, most prescription drug classes include several options. Some are higher-cost brand-name prescription drugs and others are lower-cost generic options. Choosing a generic medication can help save you money each time you fill your prescription while still safely and effectively treating your condition.

It’s a good idea to ask about generic options every time your doctor prescribes a new medication and talk to your pharmacist about generics each time you fill a prescription.
