I’ll answer in basic language
Generic medicines carry substitute salt which isn’t mass tested/no decent studies availability nor patent that’s why it’s cheaper. Always RISKY!
Branded ones recommended by doctors are tested with study on mass number so doc’s don’t take risk while recommending you that. They know it’ll work. Now, here comes 3 situations:
1. If you can afford, you really won’t be asking this question and moving to branded ones.
2. If you can afford but don’t want to waste money on medicine, you’ll check all alternatives and take risk for generic to save some money. Money isn’t > than life.
3. If you can’t afford, you’ll go for generic medicine.
I can give you my example; I’m taking rybelsus 14mg per day, just 3 strips of this cost me 11,400/month. If I couldn’t afford, I would’ve opted for generic one. 🤷♂️
Absolute stupidest thing I ever heard.
If one is buying a generic medicine having the exact same salt as the branded one, there is no difference whatsoever.
And this is a wrong assumption that all generics have different salt than their branded counterpart,
