Our partner pharmacy can only ship generic medications to your home. The generic versions are just as effective and safe as their brand name counterparts. The only difference between a generic drug and its brand name counterpart is that generic drugs are created after the chemical patent on the brand name drug expires. Chemically, there should be little to no difference between the two drugs. In order for a generic medication to be approved by the FDA, it has to work in the same way and provide identical clinical benefits as more-expensive brand name medications. They have the same parameters around dosage, safety, effectiveness, strength, stability, and quality.
If you’d like to get brand name medications instead, we’ll send your order to your local pharmacy. Please be aware that brand name medications often cost much more than their generic counterparts. If you wish to take brand name medications through your local pharmacy, please ask us about resources (like GoodRx) to help reduce these costs.
