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 Tapazole Used For?

    Tapazole (Methimazole Talbets)

    Tapazole belongs to the group of medication known as anti-thyroid medications. As the name suggests, this medication is used to treat hyperthyroidism, also known as the overactive thyroid gland. Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which one’s thyroid gland becomes overactive and starts making excessive amounts of the thyroid hormones. The thyroid gland helps in releasing hormones that help in controlling one's metabolism, heart rate, nervous system, breathing, body temperature, weight, etc. However, when this gland is overactive, all of the functions speed up, causing one to suffer from anxiety, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, tremor, excessive sweating, weight loss, insomnia, etc. Methimazole prevents the over-production of thyroid hormone.

    This medicine is available in two dosages; methimazole 5mg and methimazole 10mg. You can purchase Tapazole online at Canada Pharmacy for the best price.
