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.

    Description

    What is Cialis?

    • Cialis (Tadalafil) is a prescription medication used to treat erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hyperplasia.

    How does it work?

    • It works by dilating the blood vessels that carry blood to the penis. When the penis is sexually stimulated, the dilated blood vessels can more easily initiate and maintain an erection.
    • For benign prostatic hyperplasia, Cialis regulates the smooth muscle tone and decreases inflammation of the prostate.

    How is it supplied?
