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.

    What is Preparation H Cooling Gel?

    Preparation H Cooling Gel

    Preparation H Hemorrhoidal Cooling Gel

    Preparation H Cooling Gel is used to relieve the symptoms of both internal and external hemorrhoidal. Hemorrhoids are caused by increased pressure in the rectum region that causes the veins surrounding the anus to bulge or swell. It contains a chemical that is decongestant and works by shrinking blood vessels to provide temporary quick soothing relief from symptoms such as painful burning, itching, and discomfort. It also contains substances that lubricate and provides a barrier between irritated skin and stool to reduce discomfort further.

    Preparation H hemorrhoidal cooling gel is available for purchase online at Canada Pharmacy. Not only can you enjoy high-quality products, but you can also get your purchase delivered to your house, that too without spending a lot of money!


    This cooling gel needs to be used externally about 3-4 times every day, after each bowel movement. A dispensing applicator is also provided with the cream that enables the user to control the dispersion of the cream. Insert this applicator partway into the anus, making sure it is lubricated enough first and squeeze the tube to release the contents. Rinse and wash the cap thoroughly after each use to avoid infections. Make sure to follow the instructions given to you by your doctor.
