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.
Known as Detrustitol in the UK
Detrol belongs to the group of antimuscarinic and antispasmodic drugs. It is used in the symptomatic treatment of an overactive urinary bladder which involves urinary frequency, urgency, and incontinence. Detrol acts by relaxing the muscles in the urinary bladder which helps in improving the ability to control urine. Furthermore, this effect also helps in reducing leaking of the urine, the feeling or urgency to urinate immediately and frequent trips to the bathroom.
Detrol is easily available, and you can buy Detrol easily from Canada Pharmacy. Detrol generic is also available.
Detrol should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. It is taken orally and should be swallowed whole. Do not break or chew the tablet as it will not only increase the risk of developing side effects, but it will also cause too much of the drug to be released at one time. Usually, the drug is taken twice a day. But the dosage of Detrol will depend upon your medical condition, especially any liver or kidney disease, your response to treatment and interactions with any other drugs that you might be taking.
