E-DRUG: Medical doctors & belief in brand names (11)
-----------------------------------------------

In Nigeria there are quite a handful of doctors that
believe only in branded products and they can't really
be blamed because of the problem of counterfeiting or
poor quality of drugs.Ironically poor quality is not
peculiar to generics and it might even be more of a
problem with branded since branded drugs are trusted
more than generics then they are more likely to be
faked. Maybe a study will be carried out to confirm
this. The doctors don't swear by the company name.
