Basic information on generic medicines

Also called as generics, these are unbranded drugs sold at a very low price compared to the branded medicines manufactured and sold by private companies.

Difference in pricing of generic drug Vs. branded

Let's take an example of the most common medicine we all know – Paracetamol 500mg tablet. If you buy one strip (10 tablets) from the local medicine store, you will have to pay around Rs.10-15. Whereas the same drug in JAS would be sold at just INR 3.02.

Precautions to be taken by the user: Always consult doctor before taking medicines.
