was recently surprised to hear a friend
remark that she was taking 'genetic' medicine. On further explanation
I realised she meant 'generic' medicine - medicine without a 'brand
name'. When writing a prescription for a drug, the GP will choose
between a generic and a brand-name product, in fact some surgeries
prescribe only generic medicines and this is often more cost-effective.
Once the GP has written the prescription form the pharmacist is not allowed
to substitute a generic drug for a named product - he can however offer
the named brand is the generic is not available. This means that occasionally
your medication may look different or be packaged differently than usual.

and improvements in diet, and supplement knowledge can offer alternative
and often-effective relief.

not only delay the effect of the tablet but can cause damage to
the lining of the oesophagus. Unless directions say otherwise, always
shake bottled medicine to ensure even distribution of its contents
before measuring out.
