Are generics just as good as non-generics?
The ARVs that I get are given to me for free. They come from India. Are they OK?
Thanks for getting in touch.
Generic ARVs are just as good as non-generic ARVs. They do exactly the same thing, just that they cost a lot less.
Most people in the world use generic HIV drugs. Also most people in the UK use generic medicines for most other treatments.
Approximately 65-85% of all UK prescriptions are for generic medicines.
