Are generic medications as safe and effective as the brand name medication?
Generic drugs are identical – or bioequivalent – to brand-name drugs in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use. They are typically sold at a price lower than their branded counterpart.
Are Traditional and Compounding Pharmacy the same ?
It’s usually assumed that a compounding pharmacy is just any traditional pharmacy, but they require specialization to offer Compounding Services. Though pharmacists from both places graduate from a pharmaceutical school and can fill subscriptions, a compound pharmacist needs more specialized training to learn the art and science of compounding. In traditional pharmacies, the medications sold come from the manufacturer in their final doses and mixtures, whereas a compounding pharmacist also has the ability to makes the medication from raw ingredients and can customize the final product.
