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.


The Pulmicort Turbuhaler is a prescription asthma maintenance inhaler that asthmatics will use regularly to reduce the severity and duration of asthma attacks. It is a corticosteroid medication that works to provide long-term reduction of the swelling that constricts the airways into the lungs and is the primary catalyst for asthma attacks. Budesonide also lessens the irritation of the airway, and most users of either the Pulmicort Turbuhaler 200 or Pulmicort Turbuhaler will take 1 or 2 inhalations each day based on their doctor's recommendation.

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