Abstract

For some time now, a debate has been raging on the issue of generic drug prescriptions. Doctors are divided on this matter. Those against generic prescription cite possible poor quality and inadequate testing; while those in favour assert that the move would make cheaper medicines accessible to many more patients. The pharmaceutical industry attempts to introduce drug molecules that are safer and perhaps more effective. To enter the market each molecule would have been subjected to rigorous experimentation, at huge cost which needs to be recovered. The services of the industry are hence to be greatly appreciated, in spite of the criticism of the high pricing of their products.
