mostly clonzepam varies greatly generic to generic
Well most chains of pharmacys, such as CVS carry the generic brands and they are usually 25% less of the active ingredate... so they spend less money on prescribtion but we are the ones that feel the pain. I started going to a small like mom pop pharmacy and I get mine got the same price as I was getting the tena for at CVS. Try a family owned pharmacy!
Beepoo, this is not true. Generics have to be equivelent of the actual "active" drug. The inert ingredients can differ and may be cheaper but the actual active drug has to be the same. See definition of generic drug below.
Generic drug: The term "generic" has several meanings as regards drugs:
The chemical name of a drug.
A term referring to the chemical makeup of a drug rather than to the advertised brand name under which the drug is sold.
A term referring to any drug marketed under its chemical name without advertising.
"Diazepam" is an example of the chemical (generic) name of a sedative. It is marketed by some companies under its generic name and by other companies under brand names such as Valium or Vazepam.
Generic drugs marketed without brand names are generally less expensive than brand-name drugs, even though they are chemically identical to brand-name drugs and meet the same standards of the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) for safety, purity and effectiveness. Generic drugs can be legally produced in the US if a patent has expired, or for drugs which have never been patented. The expiration of a patent removes the monopoly of the patent holder on drug sales licensing.
