I care for my health and do fitness workouts every day. When it comes to the health problems I always consult with my doctor, It is quite natural that a patient seeks for help. The principal reason for the reduced price of generic medicines is that the creation of the generic drug runs up less cost and therefore a lower price can be offered and still maintain profitability. I always recommend using generics, when it possible. Manufacturers of generic drugs are mainly able to avoid the following three costs that brand name pharmaceutical companies incur: costs associated with the research and development of the drug; costs associated obtaining regulatory approval (i.e. proving safety and efficacy of a drug); and (3) marketing costs. Generic manufacturers do not incur the cost of drug discovery and instead reverse-engineer existing brand name drugs to allow them to manufacture bioequivalent versions.
