Generic vs. name-brand…
When you receive a prescription from a provider, they usually will write it as a name-brand med. But most pharmacies, unless you direct otherwise, will fill it as a generic. It saves everyone money and most generics are as effective as the name-brand med. If you have questions, talk to your pharmacist and/or health care provider.
