Danocrine for EndometriosisChemical Name: DANAZOL (DA-na-zole)
Danocrine is a synthetic steroid which is similar to testosterone. It acts on the ovaries and the pituitary gland and prevents the release of certain hormones secreted by these glands. Danocrine is used in women for the treatment of pelvic pain and infertility. These symptoms are usually seen in endometriosis and fibrocystic breast disease. The former is a uterine disorder whereas the latter comes with breast pain, tenderness or a nodule due to breast condition. Danocrine can also be used in both men and women to prevent the swelling of the abdomen, arms, legs, face, and airways due to the congenital disease, hereditary angioedema.
Danocrine for endometriosis and fibrocystic breast disease acts by decreasing the hormones that are secreted by the ovaries. In the treatment of angioedema, Danocrine helps by increasing the number of certain proteins that make up your body’s immune system.
Danocrine can be purchased from Canada Pharmacy. Your order will be delivered to your doorstep.

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.
