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.

    Allergy Medicine Cetirizine Uses and Indications:

    Reactine / Cetirizine

    Reactine is an antihistamine that helps in treating seasonal allergy symptoms that cause you to suffer from itchy, watery eyes, a runny nose, hives, sneezes, and itching all over the body. When one’s body comes in contact with things that trigger their allergies, the body then produces a chemical called histamine. This chemical then causes the tissues in one’s nose area to swell up and cause the eyes to run. Antihistamine drugs help by reducing and blocking these histamines. Cetirizine 5 mg is one of the different types of antihistamines available. Do bear in mind that this medication cannot prevent or treat any serious allergic reaction, such as hives.

    The medicine is available for purchase online at Canada Pharmacy.
