When you get a prescription from your doctor ask for generic: Generics that are the exact same drug as a brand name just less expensive. You are not getting a higher quality if you choose Vicodin over hydrocodone + acetaminophen. They are the exact same chemical compound. One just has a brand name on it and a higher price tag.
Look for generic when buying over the counter drugs too:
Tylenol = Acetaminophen
Bayer = Aspirin
Advil or Motrin = Ibuprofen
Aleve = Naproxen Sodium
Benadryl = Diphenhydramine
Excedrin = Acetaminophen + Aspirin + Caffeine
Most often times you will see the generic of a drug right next to the brand name. If you ever wonder what the generic is for your favorite brand name drug just read the label. If you stack a coupon with a sale you can probably get the brand name for less, but if you do not have a coupon go for the generic brand!
