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.

Description

Chemical Name: AMOXICILLIN (a-mox-i-SILL-in)

Amoxicillin is an infection medicine used for the treatment of a various bacterial infections. Amoxicillin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is effective against a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria and limited range of Gram-negative bacteria.

Amoxicillin is a 3rd generation penicillin withbactericidal activity. This infection medicine works by killing viable bacteria, by binding to the penicillin-binding proteins which are necessary for bacterial cell wall strength and rigidity. Inactivation of the penicillin-binding proteins on the bacterial cell wall results in its dissolution thus destructing the bacterial cell.

This infection medicine is one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics. Amoxicillin is well absorbed when taken orally, and yields a high concentration in the blood and urine. Studies show that Amoxicillin is an effective infection medicine and can be used in the treatment of infections in the ear, nose, throat, sinuses, skin, bladder, pharynx, and bronchi. It can also be used for acute uncomplicated gonorrhoea, of anthrax inhalation, Helicobacter pylori eradication, prosthetic joint infection, prophylaxis of endocarditis, and in post-exposure prophylaxis.

Amoxicillin can treat bacterial infections but it doesn't work for viral infections such as the common cold. Unnecessary use of this medication may reduce its effectiveness and increase antibiotic resistance.

You can buy Amoxicillin online as it is readily available. Before purchasing medication online, you should ensure they are a licensed reputable pharmacy such as Canada Drugs Direct.

Directions

Amoxicillin is to be taken orally, and can be taken with or without food, since absorption of the medication is not impaired by food. It can be taken every 8 to 12 hours, evenly spaced throughout the day, approximately at the same time every day. Amoxicillin capsules should be shallowed whole with water.

The dosage of this infection medicine depends on the severity and site of the infection, on the pathogens expected to cause the infection and their susceptibility to the medication and on the age, weight, and renal function of the patient.

Infection medicine such as Amoxicillin should not be stopped when the patients feel better since stopping the medication too early will allow the symptoms to return and the bacteria to grow again.

Overuse of any antibiotic is bad and may lead to resistance of the medication. Thus, antibiotics are to only be taken if there is an infection, and only for a short amount of time.
