Nearly Half of Americans Less Likely To Purchase Generic Drugs after Watching News Clip


Generic Drugs
Viewers have more negative image of generic drugs after watching news clip

Flemington, NJ, September 4, 2009 – A new national media study among 966 viewers of a news clip highlighting the potential dangers of generic brand drugs revealed that nearly half of viewers (46%) reported that they are less likely to purchase generic drugs after watching the video.

The study was conducted by HCD Research using its MediaCurves.com® website on September 3, to obtain viewers’ perceptions of a news clip on FOX News which featured the potential dangers of purchasing and using generic brand drugs.

The study also revealed that 66% of viewers had a more negative perception of generic brand drugs after watching the news clip. Half of viewers (50%) reported that “disturbed” was the emotion they felt most while watching the video.

Among the findings:

Even with insurance, name brand drugs are too expensive. I have to pay a deductible before my insurance pays part of my drug cost, and even then I pay a higher co-pay for name brands. Cost is the major factor for me and I will always ask for generic and I think our government would not allow these things to happen. Considering the source of this news clip - Fox New - I am very skeptical.

Thanks for the opportunity to take the survey. I agree that the drug companies need to have their own high standards when producing drugs. It would be too much to expect the FDA to be able to check out every drug from every company.

I feel that if these generic drug manufacturers choose to make the product then that product should be held to the same exact standards as the name-brands. If they can't or won't, then they should be forced to shut down. Plus i feel the drugs should not be made overseas where standards are harder to keep an eye on.

The problem also exists where you do not decide,but your insurance company like medicare pat D mandates generics and even if they are not mandated the insurance companies keep writing you to change to generics and show the letter to your doctor and if not your co-payments will go way up.Total extortion by the government,whats new?

I am skeptic about the video because it was made for a small local news show which immediately sends out alarms. These, have notoriously been known to be ads/hitjobs in certain cases to improve sales of certain products; therefore, it is unlikely for me to take any of this seriously. The fact that the video is also ridden with an anti-foreign sentiment also adds to this. It is as if it was made to emotionally appeal to the insecurity people have against third world countries and the names India and China. Since it also mentions the FDA in a positive light, i would not be surprised if it was a paid advert by some pharmaceutical group trying to influence the flow of goods and the control of markets by insinuating regulation and a stronger FDA would help out hte situation, therefore, phasing out these generic-brand enterprises. I am, extremely, skeptical.

The video was very informative. I liked how it went well with the survey. It did make me think about generic drugs and how they can effect your healfh due to how they are not regulated like brand name drugs. However keeping that in mind each individual is different and their bodies may act differently, but I do feel more of an awareness about generic drugs.

Oh, those Porter peaches! We go to the orchrad and pick a couple bushels of those peaches they glow on the branches, and the best way to eat them is right from the tree, with the juice and flesh melting in your mouth. But I also can them up in a sauce I make out of brandy and honey from our hives, pouring the golden potion over the fiery orange, chunky slices of peach, a bit of cinnamon stick, cardamom seeds, a clove and a star anise in each quart jar. In the gray days of winter, the jars glow with the vitality of the Porter peach orchrads in summer. Exquisite on ice cream. I shared this blog on Ravelry. Hm, maybe peaches ice cream tonight Thanks!

My favorite way to eat peheacs is on toast. I will make toast, lightly butter it and then cover it with thin slices of a fresh from the market peach. Since I live in the Niagara Peninsula, peheacs are just down the road from us which is awesome.I also made freezer jam when my kids were growing up. That was some of the best tasting jam around. Even won a blue ribbon at the local fair one year MariAngel (ravelry id)

Sadly, living in Maine we have a very short peach soasen. My favorite memories of peaches are when I went to Georgia to visit my great aunt as a child, and the peaches were so very ripe and plentiful! I just remember being so shocked that the peaches were just so good and not mealy or hard. I love to eat peaches as they are, or with a generous helping of Breyer's natural vanilla. Soooooo good!

I have anautoimmune disease and Bipolar Disorder. I also have adreanal Innsufficiency. These are chronic, life long disesase that require me to take up to 15 different medications. Due to the fact that I'm am permantly disabled, I am on Medicaid. Whenever a generic becomes available, Medicaid autmatically switches to it without even letting me know. I have had negative reactions to some of these, but I really don't have a chioce in the matter.

I have heard these warnings about generic drugs but until the price is more reasonable for brand names most people including myself will choose the drug promises to bring the best balance to physical and financial health. Generics need to be available but more ethical business practices and accountability standards can improve their safety.

Many of us are obligated by our health insurers to have prescriptions filled with generic medications--or pay the difference which in many cases is huge. That is the reason I use generics--and will probably continue to do so--despite the issues raised in the video and my skepticism that the FDA can adequately police foreign pharmaceutical companies.

More than anything, my insurance dictates what drug I purchase. I would like this to be a decision I make with my doctors, but the insurance companies are dictating and I do not like that at all. I would much rather take the name brand drug. If the decision were made by me and my insurance paid for it, I would choose the name brand EVERY time!

I see this story as an attempt by Fox News to scare the public. Obviously, we should first check on where the generic medications are manufactured before we take them, but I don't believe that it means that we should eliminate generics from medicine cabinets. Medications are so important that they should have the highest amount of regulation that's allowed in our society, regardless of where they're made. If foreign countries want to sell their drugs within our borders, they have to be subject to our regulations.

I question the accuracy of the report. I've been taking generic drugs for at least the last 10 years and have never experienced any ill effects and I seriously doubt that I will in the future. I've also checked where my generic drugs are made and they are all made in the U.S.

You have to understand the reason that I will continue to buy generics, even knowing this information. I can't afford to buy name brand drugs. My insurance will not pay for name brand drugs. The insurance companies and doctors all have us between a rock and a hard spot. And they are getting richer...

usually nothing. the aitcve ingredient is the one that makes the difference, and it is the same stuff whether generic or own brand. sometimes the generic ones are manufactured abroad, or for export (known as a parallell import) which makes them cheaper. this way the pharmacies make more of a profit and you still get your drugs either way. its not really a quality issue, though you might prefer the shape or even the taste- any differences will be purely cosmetic.

I am so saddened that pharmaceutical companies and the FDA maintain such control over the types of medications and care that Americans use. Now we as consumers need to be aware of manufacturing safety. Which authority is looking out for the validity and the safety in any sense in either Brand name or generic drugs? Giving full confidence to brand name and slighting generic drugs does not instill security, nor can it help where price is concerned. Most endeavors need to be overseen either by us individually or by us as a public or by some agent concerned with a safeand fair outcome. Generic and brand drug manufacturing are not exceptions.

I feel that although the info is disturbing, many people are faced with no choice but to continue taking generics even though they may not be safe. this is because a lot of insurances only cover them, and they are more affordable. This is especially important since many people are having a harder time because of the economy.

Interesting Video. I have been cautious using generic drugs since my daughter had an allergic reaction to a generic drug. My daughter has allergies and I knew which drugs she could safely take. I switched to the generic version on one occasion and she began experiencing breathing problems and hives. The doctor could not offer any other explanation other than perhaps there was an ingredient in the generic that my daughter was allergic to.

so, video slams generic drugs, video comprises of one sided scenario of these drugs.Keep in mind, not all generic drugs are manufactured outside the united states,even though this video wishes to project that image.i smell a hog. that hog is trying to project that all generics are bad,even though does not mention domestic made generics. what is this topic, anti-universal healthcare mumbom jumbo. this video does not project two sides of the generics sold in this country in my opinion. logically, would want the govt agencies to remove themselves off their butts and do their job too.
