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.

    What is Creon used for?

    Creon Medication

    Creon (Pancreatic Enzyme)

    This particular medicine helps you to digest fats, proteins, and sugar. This medicine contains a combination of the substances, namely, lipase, protease, and amylase. These particular enzymes are produced by the pancreas, and they help in digestion. The lack of sufficient enzymes in your body could be due to a number of factors. These include cystic fibrosis, chronic inflammation of the pancreas, or the blocking of the pancreatic duct. The lack of enzymes in the body due to these factors can then be compensated by taking Creon.

    This pancreatic enzyme supplement is easily available online. You can buy Creon medication from Canada Pharmacy online.
