Drug sales have become foremost of importance to the vast majority of our population in the United States.

Owing to the greater good by research and development, cost of drugs begin with a price that includes all that envelopes discovery.   Once the active ingredients of a medicine are developed and researched to formulate a cure what that includes are additives that make the active ingredient work as intended to offer a specific remedy.

What ales us and what offers the cure or a remedy can be the result of a specific active ingredient or a generally similar active ingredient.   When an active ingredient is discovered, a specific amount included with the binder to allow the drug ingestion into our system becomes patented and is then owned by a named brand, company.

General remedies, or generic drugs come about in two distinct forms.

With respect to a patent on a drug, the generic is made by another company that usually takes the newly discovered, patented chemical and changes the binder.   So, in most cases, the exact amount of active ingredient that binds with a sodium compound becomes ingested to the exact proportion tested to offer the remedy as prescribed by our physician.

Our physician's only obligation under license is to practice medicine to the best of their ability, or without obstruction, as the law would suggest.

With the law that governs patent rights, a drug company can use an active ingredient and alter the patent with another binder, according to an independent chemist testing for the FDA (Food and Drug Authority, of the United States) usually what has been found in drugs generic to the patent is a substitution of potassium for the binder, which allows for the active ingredient to sustain its activity for the remedy; and that allows for an alteration to the patent of less of the active ingredient because by an alternative calculation using a prolonged binder the controlled remedy in substance generally suited to what is prescribed to work fits the FDA approved requirement.

Many people fall ill to the effects of this prolonged binder that interacts with other substances after the prescribed active ingredient has become exhausted in their system.   Sometimes, the coating is changed in the manufacture of the generic, so both the amount of prescribed drug and an ill effectual coating can cause more of a disruption to our system than a remedy.

Worse, in some cases, the 'generic' offered to the public is not generic to the patent, but generic to the symptom; and in that case the remedy often simply doesn't work at all.

While the government of the United States wants to be fair to all companies, and offers large useage guarantees for lower prices, some drug companies complain that their generic drugs are out-ed by the government and win substitution in our medical subsidy plans.

What opens the door to the crime, is both the upset of our doctors' rights to practice medicine without obstruction, and a closed door to complaints over reactions to generic medicines whose binders or coatings cause shocking reactions.

There is no definition within the law for these generic drugs to be labeled as generic to the patent, or generic to the symptom.   So, recourse to demand patent drugs, are called 'brand named' drugs and complaints that can be deadly are not covered in favor of the patient, nor the doctor by the current laws.

Too bad.
