Aside from the quality of a certain medicine, price is is also highly crucial especially with the current state of healthcare systems in the country and when it is assumed generally by private individuals.
I was invited to a press conference of The Generic Pharmacy(TGP). With this event, I was oriented that medicine to intake will not cost you a lot especially if one is sick.
For almost 3 weeks, my daughter was inflicted by measles where fever goes on and off. At most, we almost consumed 5 paracetamol tablets in a day that cost almost P 40.00.
By buying TGP paracetamol, this would only cost P 1.00 each tablet as in P 1.00 only! That would be a lot of savings.
According to Kim Atienza, aside from the quality of a certain medicine, price is highly crucial especially with the current state of healthcare systems in the country and when it is assumed generally by private individuals.
“When I had my stroke, I realized just how pitiful our healthcare system is. What’s worse is that if you are not that well off and you suddenly get sick, it will probably cost you a fortune especially with those expensive treatments,” explained Kuya Kim. “You can also add the increasing price of medicines to the list.”
“This has been my motivation to push for affordable yet equally safe and effective alternatives when it comes to medicines. For someone who needs to spend a lot on a daily basis as treatment for my sickness, this includes constant intake of paracetamol for the pain, I am thankful that we have generic medicines that are readily available in the market today,” he added.
Kuya Kim, a health buff and fitness enthusiast, was recently diagnosed with the Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare disease that causes the body’s immune system to attack the nerves, and when not treated early, can paralyze the entire body.
The TGP Paracetamol is the first clinical and human-trial tested private label generic medicine brand that is proven to be in equal effectiveness to off-patent brands. This was tested via a randomized three-way crossover single dosed bioequivalence study against the leading and innovator paracetamol brands in the market.
With over 1,600 franchised outlets nationwide, TGP is strengthening its pro-health advocacy by getting reputable and well-known personalities like Kuya Kim and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto to support their cause.
Aside from that, TGP also offers its customers a Dial-A-Doctor service wherein they can get free medical consultation from a doctor on duty and receive recommendations right away by simply dialing 732-3333. The service is available from Monday to Saturday, from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
