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.

  • Product Details


    Diflorasone is a prescription steroid cream used to treat a group of skin conditions called dermatoses. Dermatoses are a broad category of conditions that involve abnormalities of the skin. In contrast to dermatitis, there is no inflammation involved.

    Diflorasone is typically prescribed by a healthcare professional trained in skin conditions, like a dermatologist. It works by reducing the effects of the immune system. Normally, skin conditions form when there are too many or too few chemical messengers, and diflorasone helps to correct this imbalance.
