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 Lipitor Used For?

    lipitor indications Lipitor (Atorvastatin)

    Lipitor is used with diet changes to reduce the amount of cholesterol and fatty substances present in the blood. It works by slowing the production of cholesterol in the body. The buildup of cholesterol and fats along the walls of the blood vessels reduces blood flow. Therefore, the oxygen supply to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body is decreased. Lowering the blood levels of cholesterol and fats can help to prevent heart disease, angina, strokes, and heart attacks.
