Generic Zyprexa (Olanzapine 15 mg) guide:
What is the preparation you can buy as Generic Zyprexa?
The medication you know as Zyprexa is based on the active substance called Olanzapine. It was discovered and patented back in 1971 and since 2011 is available in a form of generic medication. It means that not only the developer of the preparation but all other pharmaceutical companies can use the formula and make the same medicines. Usually, these preparations are substantially cheaper than the branded medication. Fact, the whole idea of generics creation and marketing is based on the making of the most modern and effective drugs available everywhere in the world and at the prices affordable for people from the less developed countries.
Olanzapine, and all of the medications based on this substance and collectively called Generics of Zyprexa or Generics of Olanzapine although they are all registered under different trade names, are atypical neuroleptics of the thienobenzodiazepine class or the second generation antipsychotics used for the therapy of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders with pronounced productive and negative symptoms.
Why is Generic Olanzapine substantially cheaper than the branded medicine?
Despite the fact that generic medications gain more and more popularity, many people are still not ready to start using them instead of the branded medications. In most cases, it is because of the suspiciously low prices of the drugs that people believe are indicating their lower quality. Other people are told by their doctors that they need to use only the branded medications. But all of these convictions are not true.
First of all, the cheap price of these medications is explained by the factors that do not influence their quality such as the lack of the research costs as they use the formula created by somebody else, low production costs because they are making the pills in the developing countries, no advertising expenses because the best advertising for these preparations is their cheaper prices, and so on. Prior to being allowed into the market, all of the generics are clinically tested for the compliance with the original formula, conformity to the international quality standards, and so on so you don’t have to worry that you will get an inferior medication when you buy Generic Zyprexa instead of the branded medicine.
As for the fact that some health care providers insist that only the branded medicines are effective, it is proven that many of them receive kickbacks from the large pharmaceutical companies for every prescription they give out for their medicines.
