Not all generic drugs have the same formula

All generic drugs are FDA approved and are as safe and effective as the brand name. Most people know they also have the same active ingredients as the brand name, but many don’t realize generics are not required to have the same inactive ingredients1 as the brand. These make up over 70% of a tablet on average.


Authorized Generics –
The only thing generic is the price3

Only a select group of generic drugs are authorized generics. An authorized generic is the exact same drug product as the brand, including both active and inactive ingredients. It is often made in the same facility, on the same equipment as the brand-name medication, yet typically sold at a generic price3. A generic drug is a copy of a brand-name drug that is developed and made by a company other than the company that makes the brand-name drug.

Authorized generics ensure a consistent prescription drug experience

The Authorized Generic Advantage

Because the drugs are identical* to their brand-name counterparts, the experience will also be identical. Authorized generics will have the same texture, taste, smell, and feel as the brand-name drugs.


Most authorized generics are made in the same exact manufacturing facility as the brand-name drugs, by the brand-name companies that held the original patent on the drugs; they are simply marketed as generics under a private label, so the packaging and name are different.
