What’s the difference between generic and brand-name prescription drugs?
Last week we attended a public meeting at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) where we testified in front of supporters and opponents on behalf of the FDA’s proposed rule on Supplemental Applications Proposing Labeling Changes for Approved Drugs and Biological Products.
More than 80 percent of prescriptions filled in the United States are for generic drugs. Women get these prescriptions with the assumption that the drugs they’ve been prescribed are safe and effective.
