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.


Colestid is a prescription medication for lowering cholesterol and reducing risk of strokes or heart attacks because of blocked arteries. It is a bile-acid binding resin medication that removes bile acid from the body to lower cholesterol levels and is most effective when the patient also makes diet and lifestyle changes paired with their high cholesterol medication. It is common to start on a lower dose of Colestid and then have it increased as your doctor monitors cholesterol levels and determines an ideal maintenance dosage.

Colestid for diarrhea treatment may be possible because of excessive bile in the intestines.

You can buy Colestid online with a doctor’s prescription and the best price on this cholesterol lowering drug will be when ordering medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


Take medication orally one (1) or two (2) times a day as directed by your doctor, and ideally, you’ll take this lower cholesterol medication at the same time of the day.
