As we promised in a previous blog post, we would dedicate a full article about Generic Drugs as always get lots of questions from existing and new customers about this and we have to say yes indeed sometimes “generic drugs” can make it confusing, because the big pharma makes it that way. However after you read this article you will be fully informed and aware of the many advantages generic drugs have over brand-name drugs.
What are Generic Drugs?
Generic Drugs are drugs/medicines/pills like any other but not produced under a brand-name but under a generic-name. Normally the active ingredient. Other pharmaceutical companies are allowed after the patent of the brand name drug expires also to produce and market the medication. They are only not allowed to use the “brand-name” of course. So for example with the widely popular drug “Viagra” other generic viagra are marketing these as “Sildenafil Tablets” or other generic names like Suhagra, Silagra, Kamagra, Eriacta etc… They are all generic viagras and the same is valid for “Cialis“. With other drugs like the popular asthma drug the brand version “Ventolin” they market the generic ventolin as “Albuterol Sulfate” the active ingredient.
Why to use Generic Drugs?
Well simply because they are cheaper and work exactly the same, have the same active ingredient and are from the same quality and same quality pharmaceutical producer, so there is really no difference! The fact at our online pharmacy we sell both Brand-Name drugs as well as Generic Drugs is simply because some customers prefer brand drugs and we always put the customer first. It is the same with clothes, some people prefer branded clothes like Polo Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein while they are no different than less known fashion brands. The distinct advantage from generic drugs over branded drugs is the fact they also available in less strong and stronger versions!
Can you always use Generic Drugs?
Yes you can! There are no other side effects from generic drugs than brand-name drugs, as they use the same active ingredients and chemical compositions.
Why the big pharma is against?
Well money is money and the big pharma earns a lot of money selling their brand-name drugs for too high prices! It is not for nothing many consumers and human right groups are fighting against the high drug prices around the world! We as a non-profit pharmacy support all these actions, but the better solution is simply by online shopping and compare prices for drugs and if they are cheaper at our online drugstore than your local pharmacy, buy them online and you will not regret! Pharmacy XL has a huge choice of generic drugs for rock bottom low prices and with free shipping and it is not for nothing than some clients even call us the “Generic Pharmacy”.
