  • A generic drug is identical or bio equivalent to a brand name drug in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use.
  • Generic drugs are important options that allow greater access to health care for all Americans.
  • Generic versions of a drug must use the same active ingredients as the brand name drug, and it must meet the same quality and safety standards.
