We dispense generic medication based on how your doctor writes your prescription as well as your state’s specific regulations on generic substitution. A generic medication contains the same active ingredient(s) as a brand-name medication, but may have a different shape or color. Drug manufacturers must prove their generic medications work the same as the brand-name medications. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provides approval for these medications. If you were not told of a change, make sure to ask your pharmacist if you notice the shape, size or color of your medication is different.”
