Accolate, 20 mg zafirlukast Dosage and Purpose of use
Accolate is a drug that helps in easing asthma symptoms. It works by preventing the production of a chemical called leukotrienes in the body. This chemical causes the lining of breathing passages in the lungs to swell up. With regular use, Accolate reduces this inflammation in the airway linings and makes breathing easier. Being able to control symptoms of asthma such as wheezing and shortness of breaths helps an individual in carrying out daily activities with ease.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
