Frequently Asked Questions


Why are generic drugs less expensive?


New brand name drugs are developed under a patent, giving the company the sole right to sell the drug during the patent period. During this time, a drug company charges more for a brand name drug to recover the costs of developing the drug, which also includes research, marketing and promotion. When the patent expires, other manufacturers can begin to produce and sell generic versions of the brand name drug.
