More facts about Generic Sinequan (Doxepin 10 mg):
What is the drug marketed as Generic Sinequan?
The medication known mostly as Sinequan in the U.S. and the UK was developed in Germany in 1963. The active substance of the medication is called Doxepin. This name unlike the brand name Sinequan is used internationally. The same medication is manufactured and sold under a variety of names by different pharmaceutical companies but all of them indicate the active substance below the trademark so you will never go wrong. The registered names for the medication are Doxin, Adapin, Aponal, Curatin, Quitaxon, Zonalonnd many others. These medications are no way inferior to the branded and more expensive medication named Sinequan. You can find these cheaper versions of the preparation if you look for Sinequan or Generic Doxepin.
The term “generic” was introduced by the World Health Organization. It is used before the brand names or the active substance of the medication you want to find from another manufacturer. All pharmacists know what you mean when you ask for a generic of a certain medication. These medications are usually much cheaper than the branded ones because they are in general made to make needed treatment affordable to people from all social clusters. However, in some countries, even generic medicines are quite expensive. The cheapest generics can be found in the developing countries or from online drugstores that sell the pills at the prices they are sold in those countries. For instance, at our online pharmacy, you can buy Generic Sinequan much cheaper than it is sold at the regular drugstores in the U.S. and the UK.
Why is Generic Sinequan so much cheaper than the branded medication?
In general, generic medications are cheaper because their producers do not invent the medications but use the formulas invented by others. However, in the case of this particular preparation, since it was discovered more than 50 years ago, the branded medication would also lose a significant share of its price but it doesn’t happen because the owners of the brand still promote it and try to perpetuate the idea that the generics are inferior. However, the lower price in case of generics doesn’t mean that and if your doctor tells you to buy Sinequan you can safely purchase a generic medication instead. But make sure to check the active ingredient. It is always written on the box of pills and should read Doxepin. Besides, the same active ingredient is used for antidepressant and sleeping pills but in different dosages per pill. Therefore, you should also check it to get the right medication. If you are unsure what dosage you need, you can consult our pharmacists.
