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

    Methoblastin Medicine Use:

    Methoblastin is used to treat severe psoriasis and severe autoimmune diseases. These conditions are only used for treatment after all the other options have failed to work.

    The medicine contains methotrexate, which belongs to a family of medicines referred to as antimetabolites. It may even be referred to as a therapy medication.

    Methotrexate was developed to treat cancer and is still used for this purpose.

    The methotrexate sodium drug molecule is just like folic acid and creates new cells. It inhibits the accelerator that turns folic acid into its active kind. This reduces cell growth, and this is why methotrexate sodium is used to treat some cancers.

    The medicine works by blocking the accelerator required by the body's cells to grow. This interferes with the expansion of some cells that grow quickly in diseases of the skin and cancer. In autoimmune diseases, this medication works to reduce pain, swelling, and injury to the joints.

    You can purchase the medicine easily from Canada Pharmacy and get it delivered to your doorstep. The good thing is that this online pharmacy not only offers the best prices, you also have an assurance of quality.
