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

    Luxiq is a steroidal anti-inflammatory cream medication that is primarily used to treat eczema or psoriasis. It may also be used to treat seborrhea affecting the scalp, and it is easily applied as a topical cream or foam that is rubbed onto affected areas of the skin. It will reduce swelling, itching, and redness of the skin and is known to provide relief quickly for users. Luxiq is classed as a medium-strength corticosteroid medication.

    Directions

    Luxiq foam is usually applied twice daily, once in the morning and then again in the evening. To apply, turn the container upside down and dispense a small quantity onto a clean and cool surface like a plate or board that is easily cleaned. The reason that a cool surface is important and why you shouldn’t dispense this into your hands is because warmth will cause the foam to melt too quickly.

    Now use your fingers to scoop up the foam and rub it onto the affected area of your scalp or elsewhere on your body as needed. Rub it in until it is absorbed. Repeat again in the evening, and continue with this every day until you experience significant relief from eczema, psoriasis, or seborrhea.

    Ingredients

    The active ingredient in Luxiq is Betamethasone Valerate.

    Cautions

    Speak to your doctor before getting a prescription for Luxiq if you have a history of high blood pressure or a weak immune system. Do not use Luxiq if you have a scalp infection. Also be aware that Luxiq may slow a child’s growth if this medication is used for an extended period of time. This is something that can be discussed with your doctor during your initial consultation. 

    Interactions

    There is the possibility of interactive risks when using Luxiq cream alongside another corticosteroid medication. In any instance, be sure to advise your doctor of the medications you are currently taking. Common ones that pose interaction risks are clobetasol or prednisone.

    Side Effects

    It is possible to buy Luxiq foam here, and side effects related to the use of it are uncommon. However, some people may experience mild burning, stinging, of itching at the site of application. If these side effects are seen then you should discontinue use and discuss other eczema, psoriasis, or seborrhea treatments with your doctor.
