Generic vs. Name Brand

Generic drugs are a less expensive alternative to name-brand drugs. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), requires that all drugs be safe and effective. Since generics use the same active ingredients and are shown to work the same way in the body, they have the same risks and benefits as their brand-name counterparts. After a company's exclusive right to market a medication expires, other companies are allowed to develop generic equivalents - usually at a much lower cost. Consumers interested in saving money on prescriptions should ask their doctor or pharmacist at their neighborhood Family Fare or D&W to determine if a generic drug is available for their prescription and if it is right for them. A list of the 19 Family Fare Pharmacies and 10 D&W Pharmacies in West Michigan is listed below.

Focus on Health and Wellness

This program complements other health and wellness programs Glen's Markets offer customers throughout the year to help stretch healthcare dollars, prevent illnesses and educate our customers on healthy lifestyles.
