Frequently asked questions:
What is a generic drug?
Generic medication is a medicine which is chemically equivalent to a brand-name product, but available under its generic chemical name. Generic medication is identical (bio-equivalent) to its branded drug equivalent in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use. Generic drugs are manufactured by certified producer. Mind that the pills you will receive from us differ in appearance from the brand name ones. The looks of medications as well as brand names are the intellectual property of the brand manufacturer. Thus to avoid any accusation of copyright infringement we have to change the shape and the color of the generic pills as well as use the name of the active ingredient (generic name) instead of the brand name for printing on pills. Please be aware that the generic pills differ in appearance from the brand name medications. Our pills are round shaped and blister packed (10 pills per each blister). The name of the active ingredient as well as the weight are specified on the pill itself.
Why are generic pills cheaper than the brand name ones?
The price difference between generic and brand is determined by a prime cost.
