the prefix "apo" or 'novo" indicates that the medication is a generic form. There is no difference in one of these medications in comparison to a brand name, except for cost.
I want the answer to Steve's question - "What does "novo" or APO" mean before the drug name?
depends on the drug. can be part of the chemical name using in the Pharm name they use. I would recommend looking up on drugs.com to try to figure it out for you drug(s).
