talk about generics

If you take prescription drugs, ask your pharmacist if there is a generic that’s right for you.

When you pick up your prescription, take the time to ask your pharmacist questions about your medications. Here are some questions to help guide you. 

Questions to ask your pharmacist:

1. Is this a generic?

2. Is there a generic version of my drug available?

3. Can I substitute my medication with a generic?

4. How much will I save under my prescription plan if I take the generic?

5. Does the generic version look different from the brand name drug?
