    You probably never think twice about filling your prescriptions with generic drugs. They are much cheaper than brand-names, and they perform exactly the same as the original, right? But what if something goes terribly wrong like it did for Karen Bartlett when she took a generic painkiller for shoulder pain? Soon after, two-thirds of Karen’s skin began shedding off.

Since 80 percent of the 4 billion prescriptions written in America are now filled with generics, You Should Know the facts and what consumer advocates are doing to stop this injustice.
