Generic Remeron (Mirtazapine 15 mg) guide:
What is the preparation sold as Generic Remeron?
The preparation called Remeron is a brand medicine manufactured by a certain pharmaceutical company. The name is a registered trademark and cannot be used by other pharmaceutical companies but the active substance, Mirtazapine, is widely used.
The active substance Mirtazapine was developed in1994. Then, the exclusive patent for the manufacturing and selling of the preparation was obtained by the drug developer. This substance was and is currently used as the main ingredient in one of the most effective (according to the research dated 2009) antidepressants, Remeron. However, absolutely the same medication is made and marketed by other drug makers. They can use the formula because the patent has already expired and since they didn’t invest in the research and the promotion of their medications, they price the products cheaper. You can find such medications if you look for Generic Remeron. It is a generic name based on the known and advertised name of the medication but it is not a registered trademark. The medicines are called absolutely differently. For instance, you can see the names Mirnite, Mirtaz, Olsalazine, and others on the original boxes of pills. But you don’t have to worry that you may end up purchasing the wrong medication. You can easily check the active substance, it is always indicated below the trade name and in the case of this antidepressant, it should be Mirtazapine.
Why is the generic version cheaper than the branded medicine if they are the same?
You may wonder, what is the reason behind the big price difference between branded medicines and generics? There are several factors that influence it. The most obvious reason is that the generic drug makers do not invent their medicines but rather use someone else’s inventions when the law allows them. This practice is promoted by the World Health Organization because it makes it possible for people from all classes with any incomes to enjoy the most effective and modern medications. For instance, if you need an antidepressant and you cannot afford the branded one you can either opt for an outdated, less effective but cheap medication or buy Generic Remeron and get absolutely the same effect as from the branded medicine based on Mirtazapine.
Besides, the generic drug makers do not promote their medications and place their facilities where they make the pills in the developing world. This allows them to cut the production and promotions costs, and market their products several times cheaper than the branded medications without compromising the quality.
And the third factor for such huge price difference is that large pharmaceutical companies spend millions of dollars every year on kickbacks to healthcare workers for prescribing their medications. It is also proven that the majority of medications in the U.S. are incredibly overpriced just because their manufacturers want to sell them so expensively and no one stops them.
