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.

    Description

    Good vision is very important, and no one wants to be experiencing discomfort with their eyes. Flarex is a prescription eye inflammation medication that is used to treat dry eye disease, allergic conjunctivitis, scleritis and other inflamed eye conditions. It is a steroidal anti-inflammatory for the eyes that promotes greater penetration of the cell membrane of the eye. Flarex eye drops may also be prescribed for people needing post-surgery recovery after LASIK or other surgical procedures on the eyes, but they are most commonly recommended as a medication for ocular surface inflammation.

    You can buy Flarex ophthalmic solutions with a prescription at most pharmacies, and you’ll always get the best price when you order medication online from Canada Pharmacy.

    Directions

    1. Pinch skin on lower eyelid flap to create the conjunctival sac.
    2. Apply 1 to 2 drops of FLAREX into the conjunctival sac 4 times each day.

    Be careful to not to touch any other objects or surfaces with dropper tip to avoid contamination risk. Remove contact lenses before applying dry eye disease solution. Lenses can be worn again 15 minutes after application.

    Over the first 24 to 48 hours, Flarex dosage may be increased to 2 drops every 2 hours.

    The active ingredient in Flarex eye drops is Fluorometolone Acetate.
