We use Generic Medicines generics

Generic medicines are simply another version of branded medicines.  They are medicines which contain the same medicinal ingredient, for example Paracetamol is the generic name of the brand medicine Panadol.

Generic medicines are equally as good and safe as the brand medicines.  The Government ensures that the generic medicines are made to the same standard so that they are as safe and effective and of the same high quality.

As the generic medicine contains the same medicinal ingredients they treat your condition just the same as the branded medicines.  Sometimes there may be a difference in colour, shape or size, but this is only the outward appearance and does not affect the medicine or how it works.

The doctor will always make the best choice of treatment for you.
