What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Description

    House dust mite allergen extract belongs to the class of medications called allergy immunotherapy. It is used to treat moderate-to-severe allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itchy, stuffy or runny nose caused by house dust mite allergy. Before treatment with house dust mite allergen extract, your doctor will confirm your allergy with either a skin or a blood test. This medication works by causing the body's immune system to become less sensitive to the effects of the dust mites. It may take between 8 and 14 weeks of using this medication regularly, before symptoms begin to improve. This medication does not provide immediate relief for symptoms of house dust mite allergy.
