Basic Information On Benzac
Benzac is an acne medication. It also treats whiteheads and blackheads which are formed due to accumulation of excess oil and dirt in skin pores. Hormonal changes, mostly in teenagers, lead to increased sebum oil production which combine with dead skin cells and block the pores. The Benzac drug unblocks the pores and kills the bacteria in the skin. It dries the skin mildly which helps wash away excess dirt and oil from the skin. It also dries the acne and causes the skin to peel. It is applied topically and a small amount is rubbed into the skin. However, the treatment needs to be carried on for a long period of time as it takes several weeks for the results to show.
Precautions / Side Effects Of Benzac
Benzac contains Benzoyl Peroxide. It may cause the skin to peel, feel warm or stingy. Usually these side effects subside on their own. However, you should contact your doctor if you experience persistent itching, tenderness, scaly eruptions, rash, redness of skin, a burning feeling or extreme dryness. You should be careful not to get the medication into your eyes, nose, mouth or on your lips. If it accidentally gets into your eyes, make sure you wash it off with plenty of cold water. Brand or generic should not be used on inflamed or damaged skin. Benzoyl Peroxide may bleach your hair or fabric. Therefore you should avoid contact with hair or clothes. In case, you find this medication causing extreme skin dryness, your doctor may recommend less frequent use or washing it away sooner. Brand or generic Benzac may make your skin sensitive to sunlight. Therefore you should try to avoid direct exposure to sun, tanning beds, or sun lamps.
Benzac is usually applied up to three times a day.This medication is used topically and you should wash your hands before applying it. The area where it is to be applied should be washed with warm water and dried gently with a soft cloth. The lotion should be shaken well before applying. Do not cover the area where Benzac has been applied as it may lead to more than required absorption of the medicine by the body. The medicine should be continued for several weeks as it is a slow acting medication and takes time to exhibit results.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
