What is the medication sold as Arcoxia?
Arcoxia is not a unique medication. It is just another name for the active agent Etoricoxib used for the therapy of various conditions that affect joints and bones. Arcoxia is probably one of the most known names because it is registered in many countries and promoted through the advertising and doctors who prescribe namely this drug. However, the chemical formula can be used by other pharmaceutical enterprises that can make the same medication but are obliged to sell it under a different name yet you can easily identify if the composition is the same if you look for the active substance Etoricoxib under the trade name. The names the medication is sold under include Turox, Algix, Tauxib, Vargus, Etospeed, Coxit, and many others. If your healthcare provider tells you to buy Arcoxia, you can without any doubts opt for these medications instead.

The generic version of the medication is several times cheaper than the drug sold as Arcoxia. The term generic means that the preparation is identical to the branded drug but is not made by the developer of the original formula but by another pharmaceutical firm. The name of the producer, as well as the name of the medication, do not influence the quality and efficiency of the medication in any way. The only thing you should pay attention to when you buy Generic Arcoxia is the name of the active agent that is written under the trade name. Besides, it is better to check the reviews of customers if you plan to order the medication online to be sure that you choose a reliable seller. You shouldn’t also fall for the lowest price available as it can be a sign of an inferior medication, placebo, or an unfair seller.

Generics are sold at a lower price because their makers do not fund the research and use the formula that is developed by somebody else. Besides, the production of the medication doesn’t cost that much so it’s safe to say that the branded drugs are overpriced for no reason. The idea of generics making is to make the medications that are needed in a modern health care system affordable to anyone so you don’t need to worry that they are of the bad quality of fake preparations as their production and distribution are approved and even encouraged by the World Health Organization.
