Safe Alternatives

If you have visited O’Donnell’s pharmacies recently, you may have noticed our pharmacist offering you a generic substitute for some over the counter medicines, and also for prescriptions where the doctor has used the INN or generic name for your medicine. Generic medicines are safe copies of well-known medicines.

Same Ingredients

These days, more and more people are choosing generic medicines in Ireland. After all, they contain the same active ingredient as the product they are based on, and they’re just as effective and just as safe as branded medicines.

Lower Costs

The generic version is usually available at a lower cost. So you save money while the medicine does its job.
