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.

    Hydroquinone cream 4 percent:

    hydroquinone 4 cream

    Lustra Hydroquinone topical cream is used to lighten the dark patches of skin caused by gestation, contraception pills, internal secretion drugs, or injury to the skin. This product additionally contains sunscreens to stop spots from returning because of daylight or ultraviolet exposure.

    This hydroquinone cream works by stopping the method within the skin that results in discoloration. You can purchase Lustra cream online from Canada Pharmacy.


    Before starting your treatment with this hydroquinone 4 cream, apply a tiny quantity of this medication to a part of the unbroken skin, and check after twenty-four hours for any serious side effects. If the skin is sensitive, red, puffy, or blistering, do not use this product and speak to your doctor. If there is only slight redness, then treatment with this product could begin.

    Apply this medication to the affected areas of skin, typically twice daily or as directed by your doctor. This medication is to be used on the skin only. If it is used incorrectly, unwanted skin lightening could occur. Avoid using this product in your eyes or inside your nose or mouth. If you do get this medication in those areas, flush it out with lots of water.

    Wash your hands before and after applying the cream, unless you are using it to treat the skin on your hands.
