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

    Your doctor may prescribe Azulfidine EN to treat a variety of different autoimmune conditions. It is commonly prescribed for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ulcerative colitis (UC), ankylosing spondylitis (off-label), Crohn’s disease (off-label), and psoriatic arthritis.

    Azulfidine works by suppressing overacting cells of the immune system that are causing inflammation.

    Directions

    Azulfidine can be taken with or without food. The tablets have an enteric coating, so they cannot be chewed, crushed, or split. They should be swallowed whole. The enteric coating ensures that the active ingredient is not broken down by stomach acid and reaches the area where it is needed in the intestines.

    • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA): Starting dose is 500 once or twice a day. The dose may be increased to 1000 mg twice daily for 12 weeks.
    • Ulcerative colitis (UC): Starting dose is 3000-4000 mg per day until in remission, and then 2000 mg per day.
    • Ankylosing spondylitis (off-label): 500-3000 mg per day in divided doses.
    • Crohn’s disease (off-label): 3000-6000 mg per day in divided doses for up to 16 weeks.
    • Psoriatic arthritis (off-label): 500-3000 mg per day in divided doses.
