Medicine List - By Condition - 09835990002: PLEASE NOTE PRICES ARE A GUIDE AND NOT UPDATED FREQUENTLY
There are several ways to find the generic name for your medicine.

1. The EASIEST way is to look on the packaging of the medicine your are taking. Check the example below.  Be careful to check the GENERIC NAME  and the STRENGTH - many medicines come in a number of strengths. Sometimes a medicine has more than one active component.

Description: brand.generic name












In the pictured example above - The Brand Name is Benadryl and the Generic Name is: Diphenhydramine HCl. The strength is 25mg.

Let's look at  another example:

 

Brand Name is Capeguard-500 made by Cipla. Generic Name is Capecitabine Tablets. The strength is 500

Now let's look at an example of a Medicine which has a combination of drugs. In India it is very common for companies to mix a number of diffrent chemicals in the same pill. This can makeit difficult to find a generic equivalent. You can always take the chemicals separately - you might have to take more than one pill but will save money. Some combinations are available in generic - particularly for diabetes and hypertension.



In the above picture GLIMP-MP2 (Brand Name) has THREE different ingredients: Glimepride 2mg + Pioglitazone 15mg + Metformin 500mg (written in very small writing below GLIMP-MP2 in red - it will also be shown on the box where it is easier to read).  This is a substitute for the branded GLYCYPHAGE PG2. It is important to make sure that the substitute you choose has EXACTLY the same drugs in the SAME amounts. Please always check with your doctor.

2. If you don't have the strip or packaging, try Googling the Brand name with the word "composition" . This will often give you the Generic Name. If this doesn't work go to step 3.

3. Try one of the websites:

https://www.1mg.com/ or If you have an Android phone, download an app called HealthKartplus (now renamed 1MG) - search for your Branded drug. The App will show you the Generic name and strength under the word "COMPOSITION" - For example, if you search for Caditor (10mg) [Made by Cadila] you see that it costs rs 129/strip and the composition is ATORVASTATIN 10mg. You will see there are 104 substitutes from Rs12.63/10 tab strip [Pileca] to  Rs 280/10 Tab strip [Avastin from Orchid]. Our Atorvastatin [named Biovas-10] from the well known Biochem is only Rs 10.00/strip [MRP 65.94]. This website is also useful for finding other Branded alternatives.

http://medguideindia.com/index.php - Another website to find the Generic Name and other brands of the same medicine. Enter the name in the "Brand Name" search box. Click on http://medguideindia.com/index.php to search by Manufacturer, Brand or Generic. Instructions on how to use this very effective website are here

http://www.mydawaai.com/ - Enter the name of the medicine you use in the search box. This site will tell you the Generic Name and also show you other Brands with same composition starting from the cheapest to the most expensive.  This site shows you the MRP. If the medicine is not avalable in our list, this site shows you the cheaper Branded medicines.

4. Once you have the Generic Name, search for it in our Generic List at http://dawaidost.webgarden.com/dawaidost/medicine-list-by-condition. Use the CTRL-F search facility if necessary to search for the generic name . If you find an exact match (Name and Strength), you will see the Name, Medicine No and Price per strip.

The drug list on website is very obsolete. Kindly add and remove drug no longer available or recently added. Your website's now shows advertisement. Kindly remove as it makes browsing difficult o mobiles. Protin supliments are not available.
Please open a outlet in Hazaribag because most of the people wants to relief in medicine price. So I request you to please minimum one outlet open in Hazaribag.
Thyroxim generic does not come in 62.5mcg as it is not a standard/popular dose. We keep 25,50 and 100. Re others - our suppliers have had issues recently, but all should be back to normal soon. You will need to be flexible with brand name as we are only concerned with chemical composition. I am sure an alternative to Forminal Sr 1000 (Metformin) would have been available. Yes RIMS is busy and only caters to RIMS patients (a condition imposed by RIMS). Also everyone has to queue and it can take some time. However, it has our very lowest prices as the poorest in Jharkhand go there for help.
not availability of thyroxin sodium tab 62.5 mcg at ur any counter, preferably RIMS is a big trouble for me as so for many other patients. pl arrange to make it available. it comes with brand name THYRONORM marketed by ABBOTT.
Also OLMO AM 20/5, MONORIN 125MG, FORMINAL SR 1000 are not available and awaiting for so many days at ur RIMS counter. pl avail at earliest.

ThanksDr Maijewar. We are opening more stores. Kind people are offering us spaces at low or no rent. We are also renting some commercial spaces where we think the traffic will be sufficient to cover costs. We are also approaching governments to open stores within hospitals.

If you are interested in progressing this idea - if you can find 110sq ft of space (from a charity/society or on rental) and a qualified pharmacist to run the store, we can manage the rest.
You people have started implementation of a brilliant revolutionary idea. May God bless you all. Sending my sincere wishes and regards to your work. I hope more and more like minded will come aboard and your network will cover most cities and places of India. For me, if any given day I happen to be in a position to open a small set up, I will take your franchise for sure even if I will have my outlet separately.
