The Perennial Generic Pharmaceutical Question answered
by Dr. Andrew Yakushevich
Many doctors in the United States and Canada are skeptical about the quality of generic prescription pharmaceuticals, and warn patients against filling their prescriptions with them, despite the potential substantial cost savings.
All too often, when a patient questions an American or Canadian doctor about why not to fill the prescription with a generic, the answer is "because they're not as good" -- which really provides no new information and is simply a re-statement of the doctor's bias against generic drugs.
In general terms, Dr. Yakushevich largely agrees that taking some brands of generic prescription pharmaceuticals is a highly inadvisable gamble but, unlike many doctors in the United States and Canada, Dr. Yakushevich takes the time to explain the differences between the three types of pharmaceuticals that can be sold in Mexico claiming to be the same drug.

While there are usually a number of ways to chemically synthesize any given molecule, once a drug company deviates from the method disclosed in the original patent, the patient is entering The Gambling Zone.
While manufacturers who use these manufacturing methods are loath to admit it, pharmaceuticals manufactured in a manner different than the method disclosed in the patent often contain molecules that are not identical to those of the original drug, even if they are similar.
Unfortunately, many pharmacies in Mexico sell this third category of generic medications -- and not just the notable and highly popular Farmacia Similares (Similar...), but other pharmacies as well.
never to use this third type of generic prescription drug.
To ensure that clinic patients have access to best-quality medications, Dr. Yakushevich and the San Carlos Medical Clinic have opened the Sanc Carlos Pharmacy. The pharmacy offers patients who would like to save money by purchasing generic prescription drugs only best-quality generics.
Dr. Yakushevich is also happy to provide patients with a list of pharmacies in Guaymas that sell ONLY the best-quality generics that are manufactured to patent specifications.
