Generika Generics

There is also a blog report that there is a chain of drug stores all over the RP named Generic Drug Store. What a coincidence ! heehee They sell generic Plavic and all other drugs for a LOT less. My Enalapril is cheap enough for me here in Tacloban that I do not buy from USA or from Internet pharmacies. Try both Generic Drug Store and Alpha Pharmacies, another generic chain of drug stores in the RP. Alpha is usually even less expensive than is Generic. I was unable to find them online so they must not have websites or google is not searching for them correctly.

The Botika ng Bayan is an upscale drugstore that provides imported medicines, as well as medicines from local manufacturers, to Filipinos for a cheaper price. It is part of Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s social program to make available frequently used medicines at half the price for the less privileged Filipinos, which include senior citizens.

Launched in December 2004, the Botika ng Bayan imports mainly from India and Pakistan but also carries local branded generic drugs. Most of the medicines being imported are for asthma, hypertension and diabetes. Through this project, a network of privately run drug stores would be set up to provide products guaranteed by the Department of Health (DOH) and the Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD).
