Cardura belongs to the class of alpha-adrenergic blockers. It acts by dilatating the arteries and veins of the body thus facilitating easy blood flow through them. It is used in the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) which helps in the prevention of strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Cardura also relaxes the muscles of the prostate and the neck of the urinary bladder. This effect is used to treat prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hypertrophy) in men. Cardura acts by relaxing the muscles and facilitating urination; there is no shrinkage seen in the size of the prostate. In addition, Cardura is used to pass out kidney stones through urination. In some cases, particular bladder problems related to women have also been treated efficiently with Cardura.You can buy Cardura online from Canada Pharmacy. Remember, Cardura XL, a slow releasing formula of Cardura is used for the treatment of prostatic enlargement and not for hypertension.

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.
