Generic medicines

Recently a Jan aushdi shop has been opened in my area and when I checked for the prices at it I found that these medicines are cheaper up to 1/10 price for some medicines. My question is are these medicines effective or not. Jan aushdi shop is a project of central govt.

I really hope they turn out as effective as the ethical drugs
It will reduce a lot of price burden on patients
However the generic drugs don't undergo as strict rules and regulations as the ethical drugs

Hello, I went through your query, yes generic shops are protect of central government. And the provide medicines for least possible pricess. If formulation, chemical content, and the dosage of the drug are same then if it is either generic medicine or any other branded medicine, then both should work with same efficacy.
