I bought some medicines for our medicine cabinet last week. Paracetamols, Carbocisteine (Solmux), antacids, Mefenamic Acid, and sore throat lozenges. Guess how much I spent on all these meds? P300? Nope, I bought all of them for just under P100.
That's the magic of generic medicines. For all these years, we've been spending a lot on medicines. Imagine, A 500mg Paracetamol (Biogesic) from Mercury Drug Store costs about P2.75 while a generic brand from The Generics Pharmacy costs only P0.50. That's more than 80% in savings!
The medicines sold at The Generics Pharmacy are of course generic medicines. These are products that have the same active ingredients, same dosage and strength as the branded and expensive medicines on bigger drugstores. They are also safe as the pharmacy is recognized by the Department of Health (DOH) and the Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD).
Let's go generic!
