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.


Emgality is a prescription migraine headache treatment medication that is used to reduce the number of days a person experiences migraines in a month, which are referred to as migraine days. Emgality only needs to be taken as an injection once a month, but it has the potential to reduce monthly migraine days significantly for users. It is not uncommon for individuals to have upwards of 50% reductions in migraine days per month. The active ingredient in the medication – Galcanezumab – it binds to CGRP (calcitonin gene-related peptide) in the brain and blocks it from binding to the receptor that initiates migraine headaches.

You can buy Emgality with a prescription, and your lowest Emgality cost for it will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


Administer one Emgality injection at the same time each month.

Leave Emgality pen at room temperature for 30 minutes before injecting.

Select an injection site - abdomen (excluding 2” radius around navel) / front of thighs (at least 2 inches above the knee and 2 inches below the groin) / back of upper arms / buttocks.

Uncap the pen by twisting off base cap and throw it away. Do not put the base cap back on.

Place the clear base flat and firmly at the injection site and unlock the pen.

Press and hold the teal button and listen for an audible click sound. Keep holding the pen against your skin for 10 seconds after hearing the first click sound.

Wait to hear a second click sound, which will indicate the Emgality injection is complete.


The active ingredient in Emgality is Galcanezumab.


Inform your doctor of any history of dyspnea, urticaria, anaphylaxis or angioedema before beginning on Emgality.

Do not exceed maximum dosage regulation of 1 injection per month; if medication does not provide sufficient reduction in migraine days speak to your doctor again to discuss different treatment approaches.

Doses loaded into pen (with first ‘click’) must be injected at that time. Allowing them to remain loaded into the pen but not injected will cause the medication to spoil.

Only inject medication at one of the 4 suitable injection locations indicated above, and do not inject at the same injection repeatedly to avoid the risk of developing lipodystrophy.


Negative drug interaction risks are possible between Emgality and other Rx or OTC medications, including efgartigimod alfa. Inform your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before getting a prescription and proceeding to buy Emgality online.

Side Effects

Emgality side effects are possible and some users may experience pain, itching, or skin redness or deepening of color at the injection site(s). If side effects are seen it may best to discontinue use and speak to your doctor again about migraine headache injection treatment alternatives.
