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.

Arnuity Ellipta is a once-daily inhaler prescribed to treat asthma in patients 12 years or older. Asthma is a condition where the lungs swell and inflame, making it difficult to breathe. It is a chronic condition that sometimes gets better with time but may require treatment.
Arnuity Ellipta contains a corticosteroid medication. Corticosteroids help to regulate the immune system and reduce inflammation. This leads to relaxation of the lungs and relief of symptoms.
The Arnuity Ellipta dosage is available in 100 mcg and 200 mcg inhalers.
Arnuity Ellipta cannot be used on an “as needed” basis and must be taken daily for the full effect.
The active ingredient in Arnuity Ellipta is fluticasone furoate.
Tell your doctor and pharmacist about all medications you take before starting Arnuity Ellipta, including:
