Generic medicines may kill you

The Generic Drugs You're Taking May Not Be As Safe Or Effective As You Think

The TL:DR version
1. Globalization has shifted most drug manufacturing to India and China (cheap labor, lax regulation etc. etc)

2. Drug manufacturers in India and China cut corners and have poor drug manufacturing practices (Substandard ingredients, poor quality control, poor hygiene etc).

3. Result: horror stories-dudus in dawas, anti-organ rejection drugs not working and patients dying, findings of cancer causing chemicals in dawas (recently found in one antacid called Zantac)-the list is endless

4. Most relevant to us: the quality of the meds you get depends on where you live…Guess who get the lowest quality drugs? Africa of course!

So what can you do?

1. Buy brand meds if you can afford them

2. Failing that go for Authorized generics. See -Definition of Authorized generics

3. List of Authorized generics
