Re: E-DRUG: Mandatory generic prescribing vs trade mark rights

Dear E-druggers,

The discussion on mandatory generic prescribing depends on the definition of
medicinal products in your drug legislation. If you use INN names or generic
names in your drug legislation they can not have a case, but if you use brand
names in your definition of drugs, they might. This is at least our experience
with generic substitution here in Iceland.

With kind regards
