Finding generic equivalents for branded drugs

posted by Katy Jones Ideator , 1598 days ago , show insights

Generic medicines are literally the saviour of lives for those who cannot afford the branded medications. I often find it difficult to locate the generic equivalent for branded drugs mentioned in the prescription.

Sites like express-scripts and netcareclinic have information on generic drugs, but they are not as straightforward as a consumer would wish to be. There are number of websites from India, which is not surprising as it is a world leader in generic medicine; but the sites don't last long and not all medications listed there are available outside India.

I would wish for an app, which lets me scan the prescription and get generic drug equivalents with all necessary information immediately.
