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.

  • Product Details


    Anoro Elipta is a prescription medication for treatment of COPD, bronchitis, and emphysema. It is in inhaler form and it works effectively to improve lung function both during the day and overnight. The Anoro Elipta inhaler is a once-daily COPD maintenance inhaler and is not a rescue inhaler for instant relief from COPD breathing difficulties. Anoro Elipta provides relief from bronchitis and emphysema too, but Anoro Elipta is not an asthma inhaler. You can buy Anoro Elipta with a prescription at most pharmacies and your Anoro Elipta dose will be determined by your doctor.
