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.

    Clobetasol Cream (Generic)

    Clobetasol cream belongs to the group of topical corticosteroids. It is used in the treatment of various skin conditions. Clobetasol works by decreasing the response of the body to inflammation. It acts by reducing the activity of the immune system; thus, preventing inflammation and related itching leading to healing of the skin condition. Clobetasol is strictly a prescription drug and is successfully used for treating skin irritation, skin rashes, and to treat plaque psoriasis.

    Clobetasol cream is easily available but on the prescription of the doctor. You can buy Clobetasol cream from Canada Pharmacy. Your order will be directly delivered to your doorstep without hassle.

    It is available in 2 forms, regular cream, and emollient cream, where the latter is used for a moisturizing treatment.

    Directions

    The dosage of Clobetasol depends upon:

    • The age of the patient
    • The skin condition under treatment
    • Severity of the condition
    • Any other associated medical conditions
    • First reaction of the patient to the first dose of Clobetasol

    Based on the factors above, your doctor will decide the right dose of Clobetasol for you.

    Usually, it is applied to the affected area of the skin twice a day. It should be gently rubbed into the skin for maximum effectiveness.

    Take care not to use Clobetasol cream for longer than 2 weeks or more than 50g per week. Always wash your hands after applying Clobetasol cream as it may get transferred to other people.
