What is a brand name drug?
A brand name drug is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and is supplied by one company (the pharmaceutical manufacturer). The drug is protected by a patent and is marketed under the manufacturer's brand name.
What is a generic drug?
When a drug patent expires other companies may produce a generic version of the brand name drug. A generic medication, also approved by the FDA, is basically a copy of the brand name drug and is marketed under its chemical name. A generic drug may have a different color or shape than its brand name counterpart, but it must have the same active ingredients, strength, and dosage form (i.e., pill, liquid, or injection), and provide the same effectiveness and safety as its brand name counterpart.
Are generics as safe as brand name drugs?
Yes. The FDA requires that all drugs be safe and effective and that their benefits outweigh their risks. Since generics use the same active ingredients and are shown to work the same way in the body, they have the same risks and benefits as their brand name counterparts.

When I completed a search on YourRxMeds.net, more than one online pharmacy sold a prescription drug for the same price. Why did this happen?
In some cases, online pharmacies may have two store fronts on the Internet. Essentially, one company is providing the back and/or front end for another online pharmacy. If you see consistent duplicate pricing for two pharmacies, it may mean that both are operated or maintained by the same company. In other cases, pharmacies are offering the drug at the same price and a tie has taken place. In this case, only one pharmacy will appear on the top line and received a top placement over its competitor, due to the order in which the pharmacy information was recorded originally in the YourRxMeds database. As for companies that operate duplicate online pharmacies, you can still get value out of these duplicate sites if their online content is varied and informative.
Do I need a drug prescription?
