When Equal is Not Equal: Issues with Prescribing Generic Drugs [#R037]

We’re taught in school that generic drugs are identical to their brand-name equivalents.

But is that true? Are generics actually identical, or do differences in their composition and production processes lead to different clinical outcomes?

In this important ODwire.org Radio show, experienced clinicians Drs. Mel Friedman and Agustin Gonzalez talk about their research into this issue, and what you as a clinician should know when you write for generics vs. branded pharmaceuticals.

If you engage in patient care (or regularly take pharmaceuticals yourself), this is one episode you won’t want to miss!
