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.

Hemorrhoids is a condition where veins in or around the rectum and anus become swollen and inflamed. The person will experience irritation, discomfort, and in some cases pain in the affected area and hemorrhoids can be caused by straining during bowel movements, prolonged periods seated, obesity, straining from lifting, or eating a diet that doesn't have enough fiber. Women may also get hemorrhoids when pregnant. As people age there is more of a chance of getting hemorrhoids.
