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.

Nicorette Invisi Patches
The Nicorette Invisi Patch is a discreet, easy-to-use, solution to help you deal with the cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking. It may be suitable for you if you are a regular smoker who smokes throughout the day. The semi-transparent patch helps you to quit by delivering a continuous, controlled dose of nicotine into your body to help relieve cravings and withdrawal symptoms. It comes in 10mg, 15mg or 25mg to let you choose the right strength based on how much you smoke.
These patches are available for purchase online at Canada Pharmacy.
To apply the patch, choose a completely clean, dry area of hairless skin on the front or side of the chest, upper arm, or hip. Apply to a new part of your body each day. After 2 to 3 days, you may apply to a previous spot if there’s no sign of irritation. It is important that you do not use the same area for two consecutive days to help avoid irritating that site. The patch should be removed before you go to bed as Nicorette Invisi patch is not designed to be worn when you go to sleep at night or for more than 16 hours each day. Make sure that you dispose of the used patch correctly.
