Generic Drug Identifier

What is a Generic Drug anyway?
Generic drugs are the drugs which are manufactured and marketed without a patent. When a company produces a drug, it gets a patent to reserve its exclusive right to manufacture and market the drug. Every patent is granted for time period of 20 years. When the patent expires, the company loses the exclusive rights to produce and sell the drug and hence other companies get the approval to produce the off-patent drug. These off-patent drugs are known as generic drugs. Not all off-patent drugs are manufactured as generic drugs.

Anti Anxiety Medication In Cats

The most recommended anti-anxiety medication for cats include Buspar, Prozac, and Clomicalm.

Initially benzodiazepines were also used to treat anxiety disorders in animal but usually the symptoms returned after the withdrawal of the drug so benzodiazepines were largely replaced with other drugs.
Buspar is one of the most recommended drugs to treat anxiety disorders and various other phobias in animals. Other prominent medications include Fluoxetine like Prozac and Acepromazine like PromAce.
