Keeping an Eye on Generics

Track Your Stats
Record any lab results or hard numbers related to your condition, such as cholesterol or blood sugar levels. If you're on a drug to control hypertension, maintain a log of your blood pressure readouts. If it's a thyroid medication, compare your hormone levels (from lab tests) on the generic versus the name-brand drug. If you note a change after making a switch, consult your doctor.
