Information & Advice
Have you received a different version of your usual branded medicine from your Boots Pharmacy team?
If your doctor has prescribed, or your pharmacist has dispensed, a generic alternative to your usual medication, you might notice some differences.
Don't worry, none of these differences should affect the way the medicine works. A generic medicine needs to comply with the same standards and be just as safe and effective as the branded medicine.
There are also a number of checks every medicine has to go through in order to be sold in Ireland.
If you have any questions about your medicines, ask your doctor or Boots pharmacist in store.
