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.
Enbrel is an arthritis treatment medication available by prescription and administered by injection. The injection may also be prescribed for psoriasis or ankylosing spondylitis, and Etanercept is a TNF blocker class drug that blocks this protein so that it cannot contribute the inflammatory response that is at the root of pain and joint stiffness that come with rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis. Patients using Enbrel typically begin to have less swelling and stiffness very soon after receiving the injection, and using Enbrel can also stop the progression of disease and joint damage. Buy Enbrel from Canada and Canpharm and get the best price on it.
Arthritis is an immune system disorder where severe inflammation of joints in the body results in swelling, pain, stiffness, immobility, and tenderness in those joints. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, and arthritis is the leading cause of pain and disability worldwide.
