With the supervision that pharmacies provide for patients with a history of drug allergies, patients can feel confident that the medications they are taking are safe.

Generic drugs are recognized as having the same effectiveness as their name-brand original formulations. Also, because their development costs are lower, generic drugs are often much cheaper than their original counterparts. Anyone interested in taking generic drugs should consult with their physician.
