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!

Save money by using an online pharmacy
Of course you are well aware of the fact online shopping is going sky rocket these days, with literally every day hearing about shops which are closing, shopping malls which have lower occupancy rates and Amazon being the most valuable company in the world! Having said that, still not everyone is used to online shopping and we encourage people to discover the advantages of online shopping. The medical world is a few years behind with online shopping, mainly because of the pharma lobby and because of security and medical reasons and ofcourse doctors and pharmacist don’t want to lose their jobs.

We encourage you to check the price of the medication you need with our online pharmacy. Our clients thank us every day for the huge savings we give them. Let’s go to the second money saving tip…
Save money with Generic Drugs
Having discussed the first most valuable way to save money, “online pharmacies” let’s continue to the second one: generic drugs. If you are not familiar with the terminology “generic drugs” let’s explain it short and easy. Generic Drugs are nothing else than ordinary drugs, but the different is they don’t hold a patent and don’t have an expensive and useless brand name. For example there is Viagra Brand, which is the expensive original version of Viagra costing a fortune and there is Generic Viagra, which is the more affordable generic version of Viagra. They both work exactly the same, look the same ( blue pill ) and have the same active ingredient “sildenafil citrate” so there is no reason to overpay if you are not a millionaire or billionaire and don’t care about the price.
Generic Drugs are same like branded drugs approved by the FDA and other medical institutions. After the patent expires of branded drugs, any approved and accredited pharmaceutical company can also manufacture the medications and of course for much lower costs as they don’t have the overhead, expansive executives and no R&D costs, which are a huge part of the costs in the pharma branche. Of course R&D is important for the future of medicines, however it doesn’t mean you have to pay outrageous prices for ordinary medicines.
There are 2 simple and easy ways to save money on drugs. Firstly is by shopping online at an online pharmacy and secondly is by using generic drugs instead of brand drugs. Just watch out to use a trusted online pharmacy which is in business for many years and don’t fall for dodgy online stores. We at Pharmacy XL are a trusted name in the industry for years with an daily growing number of happy returning clients from all over the world as we thrive to have a 100% customer satisfaction and as a non profit pharmacy also we our goal is to have low prices and happy clients and not to have high profits.
