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.

  • Product Details

    Description

    IOPIDINE (apraclonidine) is a prescription medication for use in the eye. IOPIDINE can be prescribed to treat open-angle glaucoma or to prevent an increase in intraocular pressure after surgery.

    In open-angle glaucoma, the drainage canals in the eye become clogged, which increases the fluid pressure in the eye. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to damage of the optic nerve and blindness.

    Directions

    For open-angle glaucoma, Instill 1 to 2 drops into the affected eye(s) three times daily as directed by the prescriber.

    Do not touch the tip of the applicator to the surface of the eye. Doing so can contaminate the medication, leading to infections of the eye.

    Wait 15 minutes after applying IOPIDINE to insert contact lenses.

    Ingredients

    The active ingredient in IOPIDINE is apraclonidine hydrochloride. 

    Inactive ingredients include benzalkonium chloride, hydrochloric acid, purified water, sodium acetate, sodium chloride, and sodium hydroxide.

    Interactions

    IOPIDINE is unlikely to interact with other medications because most of it will not be absorbed into the bloodstream. However, some may enter circulation, and caution should be used if you are taking any of the following:

    • Alcohol

    • Barbituates
