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


    Baraclude is an antiviral medication that your doctor may prescribe to treat acute or chronic hepatitis B infection. Baraclude is typically a long-term medication that helps to suppress the development of hepatitis B infection.

    Baraclude works by incorporating into the proteins that are necessary for hepatitis B viral particles to replicate themselves. Incorporating these proteins prevents the replication of viruses and slows down the infection to give the immune system a better chance to fight the infection.

    Baraclude is typically prescribed to individuals with chronic hepatitis B, as determined by a healthcare provider. It is not used to treat acute hepatitis B.

    How is Baraclude taken?

    Baraclude is usually taken orally as a tablet or solution. The dosing regimen may vary depending on the patient's age and condition. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully.

    Can I drink alcohol while taking Baraclude?

    Alcohol should be consumed in moderation or avoided entirely while taking Baraclude, as it can exacerbate liver damage and reduce the effectiveness of the medication.
