Mylan 186 Tablet
What is Mylan 186? What kind of medication is the white scored round tablet with "MYLAN 186" imprinted on the front side?
Mylan 186 is Clonidine 0.2 mg. The medicine is used to treat hypertension. It acts in the brain affecting the level of certain chemicals and thus allowing blood vessels to relax, so that blood could flow more easily and heart could beat more slowly. Clonidine can be used for other purposes, too, though they are not approved by the FDA. They include treatment of painful menstrual periods, menopausal flushing, diabetic diarrhea, Tourette's Syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), postherpetic neuralgia, ulcerative colitis, and withdrawal symptoms from dependence on narcotics, alcohol, or nicotine (smoking).
Each Mylan 186 tablet contains 0.2 mg of Clonidine - twice as much as in Mylan 152 tablet. Clonidine is also available with a prescription under the brand names Catapres and Duraclon (these tablets look different from Mylan 186 Clonidine version).
You benefit directly when Mylan Generics are used in place of name-brand medicines. First, because you will be receiving a high quality medicine, and second, because Mylan Generics, including Mylan 186 tablets, are generally more affordable.
The manufacturing facilities of all pharmaceutical companies - those making name-brand drugs and those making equivalent alternatives - are routinely inspected by the FDA. These savings are the result of Mylan's good, old-fashioned, American competition. As you can well appreciate, when there is more than one company manufacturing and/or selling the same product, the competition generally results in cost savings for the consumer.
However, you may try and order Clonidine marketed by
other manufacturers, too!
