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

Cosentyx is a prescription plaque psoriasis treatment medication that may also be used for psoriatic arthritis or for treating ankylosing spondylitis. It is a monoclonal antibody medication that works to suppress the inflammation and swelling that is the root of the problem with these conditions. With plaque psoriasis treatment this medication is most frequently prescribed when the person is going to require phototherapy or systemic as part of their treatment, and Cosentyx dosing will vary based on the condition being treated as well as whether or not the patient is an adult or child.

You can buy Cosentyx with a prescription, and your best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.
