Generics


Generic drugs are cost-effective successor products and are manufactured using the same active ingredients from the original products when their patent protection has expired. A generic drug corresponds exactly to the original in composition and amounts and is therefore considered to be just as safe and have the same high quality. With regard to the excipients used, differences can only arise in the look/palatability and packaging that contribute to optimizing the drugs.



Generic drugs are more affordable than original drugs. In addition, the deductible for Mylan generic drugs is guaranteed to be only 10% instead of 20% as for many original drugs.

Generic drugs are just as well tolerated, safe, effective and high quality as their original.

Generic drugs play an important role in enabling more affordable access to medicine for as many people as possible.
