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

    Amprya is an oral medication prescribed for patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

    MS is a disease that affects several different systems in the body. MS is an autoimmune disease where the immune system incorrectly attacks parts of the body. In MS, the immune system attacks the myelin sheaths that protect nerve cells.

    The breakdown of myelin sheaths affects the connections between the brain and several parts of the body, including the eyes, the limbs, and sexual organs. It can cause fatigue, cognitive problems, pain, and other symptoms.

    Amprya is indicated to improve walking in adults with MD.
