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


    Lupron Depot is a prescription medication for the treatment of endometriosis in women. It may also be prescribed to limit the growth of uterine fibroids. Additionally, it can be used as a palliative treatment for advanced prostate cancer in men. Leuprolide Acetate, a GnRH agonist drug, blocks the production of hormones that certain cells need to grow, contributing to endometriosis or uterine fibroids, and inhibits testosterone production in the case of prostate cancer. You can buy Lupron Depot from Canada Pharmacy at the best price.
