Brand name medications to get cheaper as patents expire

Brand-name drugs are usually more effective than generics that's why more individuals still prefer using them despite it's higher cost over generic drugs and more will definitely prefer brand-name drugs over generics now since a growing number of brand-name prescription drugs will lose patent protection this year, with several more to follow. Some medicines are about to become a lot less expensive. A number of people stand to gain from Big Pharma's damage, as some of the best-selling medicines on the planet will soon have generic equivalents. The proof is here: Brand name medications to get cheaper as patents expire.
