Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why are MEDPro’s Global Rx Services prices so low?
A: One reason is price control. The Canadian and some other countries governments control how much pharmaceutical companies can charge for brand name products. In the USA and some other countries the pharmaceutical companies can charge what the market will bear. Patent laws vary by country and, as a result, generic prices are available in countries that do not have brand name patent laws. On average, you will save 30-80% ordering your medications from Global Rx Services.
Q: What is the difference between Brand and Generic Medications?
A: A generic drugs is the exact same or a copy of the brand name drug in dosage, safety, strength, quality, performance and intended use. Price of generic drugs are much cheaper for the exact same product. Pharmaceutical Brand Name companies have huge investment costs that they must recover so they increase the price of drugs to compensate. NOTE: We use the term branded generic to refer to generic versions of brand medications manufactured in India and sold under in-country brand names
