Generic medications and their characteristics

Is there any big difference between branded and generic drugs?

In most cases generic and branded products differ in their origin and price. Sometimes generic products have slightly different colour. The most important things – pharmaceutical content and major active ingredients – remain the same. Both generic and branded products have similar medical indications, contraindications and side effects. However, generic versions of the branded products are usually rather numerous and available in the great variety of forms and dosages. For example, generic medications can be manufactured in the form of chewable tablets or soft jelly pills, with larger dosages or additional components like herbs or something else. Manufacturers of generics enlarge their production range in order to attract more customers at the highly competitive pharmaceutical market.

Is it safe to take generic drugs?

Generic drugs are manufactured mainly in India where there are rather favourable conditions for the pharmaceutical production. That is why there are a lot of independent pharmaceutical companies dealing with the generics production. CHCM successfully cooperates with the most reliable companies which care about the high quality of their products and their business reputation. All the products are certified and licensed for sale. Generic drugs usually have the same active ingredients as well as the same dosages and rules of taking. If you order generic drugs at our pharmacy service you can be perfectly sure that you will obtain high-quality medications at the very attractive price. To be even more confident in your choice you can talk to our pharmaceutical experts and follow their recommendations.

Why are generic medications widely available in online pharmacies?

Online pharmacies have a lot of advantages for independent pharmaceutical producers who want to promote their products at the market. There is no need to hire large pharmaceutical and auxiliary staff, rent large warehouse areas in different countries and so on. It is enough to cooperate directly with the online pharmacy services and to supply products directly to the customers worldwide. Online pharmacies have no restrictions as far as country or region is concerned. The drugs are available to all the customers throughout the world without additional expenses on logistics.

Where should I buy generics in order to avoid dangerous situations?

You should buy generic medications only at reliable pharmaceutical services. As generic drugs are widely available in various online pharmacies you should study the information about the pharmaceutical shop very closely. It will help you avoid many problems in future including serious health disorders caused by low-quality or counterfeit medications. Canadian Health Care Mall values its business reputation so we are open to our customers and reveal all the necessary information. Our customer support team consists of highly professional experts in the pharmaceutical branch who can provide extended information about every product in our catalogue and consultation regarding different diseases and their treatment methods.

Why do generic drugs have so attractive prices?

The production of generic medical drugs is mainly concentrated in the third world countries which are famous for their low labour and production costs. As independent pharmaceutical companies use already invented and established technologies and pharmaceutical formulas they do not need to invest much money into the new product development and launch and as a consequence to include all these expenses into the final price. That is why generic medications can be afforded by nearly all the groups of customers. With the appearance of cheap generic medications more people have obtained a chance to improve their health and conduct the healthy lifestyle.
