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 Finacea Gel Used For?

    Finacea Gel - Skinoren Cream

    Finacea (Skinoren)

    Acne is the most common cause of spots. People usually belonging to the age group of 12 to 25 are affected by it. The tiny pores on your skin become blocked causing blackheads, pimples, and whiteheads. Finacea gel is a topical rub-on skin preparation for rosacea or acne. It works by unplugging these blocked pores. It is also used to treat rosacea in adults. This is a skin condition which usually affects different parts of your face such as forehead, cheeks, and nose.

    Wash the infected area with warm water and soap. Dry with a soft towel and apply Finacea gel twice a day. Spread it evenly over the infected area and not just on the spots.

Avoid getting the cream/gel in sensitive areas or in your eyes or mouth.
