Before COVID, Michelle, 58, of Stroudsburg, PA, realized a lifelong dream and traveled to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos. If it weren’t for her low-cost generics, she would not have been able to afford the trip.
Financially, I cut corners wherever possible,she says.But not on my health. I always ask my doctor if the generic of a medicine is okay for me, and he always says yes. Not that I take his word for it—after all, I’m a librarian, and if I can do anything, it’s research.
Generics have saved patients $339 billion over the past 10 years. Depression and anxiety are among the most common conditions treatable with FDA-approved generic prescription drugs.
