Why Generic Drugs
Why we recommend Generic Drugs?
OffshoreRx.com's mission is to give people worldwide the opportunity to purchase drugs and offer healthcare products at a more affordable price. We do this by offering these drugs in their generic form to our customers.
OffshoreRx.com specializes in sourcing and retailing important medications from leading health and pharmaceutical companies across the world.
We offer the same medications at between 1/3rd to 1/10th the U.S. retail price, either from different companies or under different brand names.
How Generic Drugs are equivalent to Branded Drugs?
The same medication with the same generic ingredients is sold under different brand names in different countries, sometimes by the same multi-national company. And more importantly, at different prices, depending on the country, cost of manufacture, marketing investment, distribution and pharmacy chain margins, etc.
For example, the generic pharmacological name or ingredient for Soma is Carisoprodol, and its brand name in the UK is Carisoma.
Obviously, there is no difference in effectiveness, safety or quality between a branded medication and its generic ingredient. The only difference is that it is a lot cheaper, because we source the generic from other companies and/or the same companies’ branches in other countries. We only source from leading multi-national and FDA-approved health and pharmaceutical companies globally.
Facts about Generic Drugs:
The Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality reports that, "consumer spending for prescribed medicines rose from $72.3 billion in 1997 to $154 billion in 2001 and will be $300 billion in 2004". Considering most health insurance plans do not cover medication, the consumer is faced with incurring very high expenses for good health.
Consumers remain ignorant of cost effective and quality sources for prescription drugs. Almost all major pharmaceuticals and medications, which sell into the United States under various brand names, sell the same drugs under the same or different brand names in developing countries for a fraction of the cost incurred by consumers in other developed countries.
aims at providing consumers the advantage of this difference and helping them save more and live healthy.
