Acyclovir cream is an anti-viral drug and is used to treat viral infections and its symptoms. It may be used to treat viral diseases such as herpes, particularly cold sores, shingles, and chicken pox. Zovirax will not cure these diseases, and the virus will continue to live within the body. This medicine works by lowering outbursts of symptoms. It decreases itching, prevents new sores from forming, helps quicken the healing process, etc. It is also helpful for people with a weakened immune system to fight off diseases.

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.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy online than our own customers.

See what they have to say - trust the people who have already discovered why Canada Pharmacy, the largest online Canadian pharmacy is indeed the healthy choice for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
