Save money replacing your branded medicine with generic equivalent.

Sometimes your doctor has prescribed a drug but that particular brand is not available at the medical store (or is too expensive). At this instance, your store chemist or pharmacist may look at other cheaper alternatives for your drug having exactly or almost equal composition of active ingredients as that of your prescribed drug.
This replacement is usually a generic drug. A generic drug is a drug product that is comparable to brand/reference listed drug product in dosage form, strength, route of administration, and intended use.

For example, if your doctor has prescribed Crocin (a branded drug, commonly used to treat fever and ache), it has Paracetamol as its active ingredient and your chemist will give you an affordable option (branded or unbranded) having equivalent amount of paracetamol.

A pediatric surgeon suggested, a few online databases in India where one can research drug, study their compositions and also learn about their alternatives. Some databases may also include retail prices to ease your task.

Mims.Com-MIMS drug database is the most popular reference source among medical professionals in India. The site requires free registration but you may use a Google query like <drug name> and skip the site search feature. – Here you can search drugs by their generic name or the brand name. Med India is not the most user-friendly site (ad-heavy) but it does help you compare the prices of various brands of drugs with the same generic drug.– This is another generic drug search engine that is also available as an app for Android and iOS devices. HealthKartPlus doesn't confuse consumers with excess jargon – you will learn about the salts in the drug, substitutes offered by other brands and their respective prices. – This is primarily for comparing drug prices with the same constituents but from different brands. You can enter the medicine name and GetDavai will quickly list branded equivalents and their prices. The website however includes no information about the developer or their source of drug data. –  Another  iOS and Android app that will help you quickly find equivalent brands of medicines along with their prices and generic names. Unlike other drug search engines, MyDawaai’s database also includes details of small drug manufacturers in India.
These sites will obviously help improve your overall knowledge of drugs but it is always advisable to consult your doctor before switching to a substitute.
These medical databases are mostly applicable for Indian users only.
