Critical Information you must know about Nexium and Generics:
Let us share some with you, critical information about generic Nexium being sold from India, and what you need to know about ordering from an online pharmacy.
Esomeprazole is the universal trade reference name assigned to the active ingredient contained in Nexium. a registered brand name marketed by pharmaceutical company: Astra Zeneca.
This important medication Esomeprazole, commonly prescribed for to acid reflux has been selling in Indian market for many years now under its generic name.
Nexium and Generic availability:
Universally issued patents will expire at different times. Once a patent expires or is denied, the market is open to pharmaceutical companies to manufacture the generic for brand Nexium.
Until very recently, because India knew their people required life saving medications, yet could not afford prices brand name manufactures in the USA were demanding, India declined to offer medicine patent protection. Thus, many products that are brand name only in the USA have an equivalent generic product readily available from India.
Smartly, India recognized that a medication is only of value if you can afford to take it.
Generally, the USA enforces patent protection longer then other G20 countries including Canada. What that means is, Americans continue to pay among the highest prices in the world for their medications. In fact: Prescription drugs are the fastest growing expenditure in the U.S. health market
- From 1997 to 2007, prescription drug prices have grown at more than 250% the rate of inflation.
- That means drug prices have increased at an average of 6.9% every year since 1997.
- What used to cost you $35.72 now costs $69.91.

This means, while still under patent protection in the USA, if you choose to buy brand Nexium you will be stuck paying sky high prices at your neighboring pharmacy. We went shopping online and found Target sells a 3 month supply of Nexium for $550.

How do you choose your overseas pharmacy:
We know that you have either probably thought of buying medications online or know someone who has actually bought online through most likely a Canadian mail order pharmacy. Let us share some facts about buying generic Nexium from India.
If you google "buy generic Nexium online" you will get almost 700,000 search results.
That's a stagering amount of information to consider.
At www.BuckADayPharmacy.com we decided to simplify and demystify the process by educating and being transparent about our products and the process.
We are sure that if you have spoken to a Canadian mail order pharmacy or have ordered the generic for Nexium in the past you have probably received a product made in India. (though does it make sense to go through a Canadian Pharmacy to get your India product?). The important question here is who or which manufacturers product have you been buying. At last count there were more than 40 manufacturers and sellers of generic Nexium in India. Not all 40 manufacturers supply or sell in the US markets because they do not meet the very high quality standards required to do so.
At buckadaypharmacy we will only dispense products that we as pharmacists and owners are comfortable using and giving to our own family members. So we select products from only top-drawer manufacturers, the ones who have US FDA approved manufacturing facilities and are selling some or many of their products into the USA.
For Nexium 20 mg generic we have decided to sell the product manufactured and sold by Ranbaxy Ltd (www.ranbaxy.com) in India. Ranbaxy is the largest pharmaceutical company in India and has 5 US FDA approved manufacturing facilities. The Japanese pharmaceutical company Dai-Ichi Sankyo now owns Ranbaxy. Ranbaxy is also the 2nd largest generic company in the world.
Ranbaxy's generic for Nexium is sold under the name of Raciper in India. This is the number 1 selling Esomeprazole in India. We have enclosed a picture of the packaging below. We do this because we want our consumers to see exactly what they are buying before it arrives in their mailbox. No bait and switch here you get exactly what your ordered.
Safety in knowing you received the right product. By seeing what you are ordering before it arrives you can verify you received the right product dispensed from the pharmacy, just incase an error occurs. Otherwise, without seeing what it is suppose to be, how do you know the pharmacy sent you the correct product?
How much does it cost in India?
We believe everyone in business deserves to make a profit. We also know that internationally mail order carries with it considerable overhead when compared to local delivery. However, we also believe in educating our consumers and informing them on how much we sell these products to Indians and tourists who pick up locally because in today's information age smoke and mirrors don't work. There is no secret to how much someone in India would pay just look at the package. The Indian government has set the MRP = Maximum Retail Price
We would like you to draw your attention to something that is printed on the packaging. It mentions MRP = retail price 30. This means that a blister of 10 tablets costs Rupees =Rs. 30 to buy in India. So, if you want to buy a 90-day supply in India you would have to buy 9 blisters of 10 tablets, which would end up costing an Indian consumer Rs. 270 for a 90 day supply. Using an approximate currency conversion rate of US$1= Rs. 45 an Indian customer pays an amount equivalent to about US$6. What $6!!! That's it? Yes that's it. Mind you this is the top-drawer version from Ranbaxy. There are companies that sell a 90-day supply for $2 but we would not consume those in our household.
Don't pay too much. Now that you have some information, be a smart shopper and see what other online pharmacies including those from Canada are charging for Indian products. Any middleman, including Canadian mail order pharmacies, which understand the Indian market as well as you do, is probably paying no more then a local Indian to buy this product. And how much do they want you to pay for generic Nexium? Our research shows, that Canadian online pharmacies have typically charged between $100 up to $150 for a 90 day supply of generic Nexium and generally will not show you what your are buying or be transparent on the details. This is not profit this is profiteering. And you thought only the pharmaceutical company was ripping you off!! If infact they have begun to lower their prices and become transparent you can thank us.
At Buck A Day Pharmacy we are committed to you, the customer, that we will only charge a daily maximum service fee of 40 cents above MRP for any product. Which means you will safely get effective high quality product at great prices.
One last word. There are pharmacies that promise that they will match any competitor price. But this is after the fact, that you and we have exposed them. Would you rather buy from a pharmacy that has profiteered from you by keeping you ignorant or from a pharmacy that has been transparent about product, pricing and profits? We leave the decision to you, our client.
Thank you for considering buying from www.buckadaypharmacy.com where our commitment is that in most cases our consumers will never pay more then a dollar a day for their medications.
