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.

    Eye drops


    Follow the instructions that come with your Bromday prescription.

    The recommended Bromday dosage is to place one drop into the affected eye(s) one time a day starting on the day before surgery and continuing through the first 2 weeks after surgery.

    To prevent contamination, do not let the tip of the dropper touch any surface. 

    If you use other eye drops, use them 5 minutes apart.


    The active ingredient in Bromday is bromfenac sodium hydrate. Benzalkonium chloride is added as a preservative. Boric acid, disodium edetate, polysorbate 80, povidone, sodium borate, sodium sulfite anhydrous, and water for injection, USP are the inactive ingredients. In addition, sodium hydroxide is added to balance the pH. 


    • Before starting treatment with Bromday, talk to your doctor about:
      • All the medications you use, including other eye drops
      • Your allergies
      • Your medical history and current health problems
      • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
    • Bromday contains sodium sulfite that can cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to sulfite. These reactions can be asthmatic or life threatening. Seek emergency care immediately if you have trouble breathing, swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat, rapid heartbeat, or rash. 
    • Healing can be slowed or prolonged with the use of Bromday, especially if used with other topical steroids or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
    • Caution should be used if you are sensitive to acetylsalicylic acid, phenylacetic acid derivatives, and other NSAIDs as cross-sensitivity reactions can occur.
    • Some NSAIDs can affect blood clotting, resulting in increased bleeding time. Bromday should be used with caution if you have blood clotting disorders or take other medications that can increase bleeding time.
    • Keratitis can occur with the use of Bromday. Some patients may experience epithelial breakdown or thinning, erosion, ulceration, or perforation of the cornea(s) with prolonged use. 
    • Do not wear contact lenses while administering Bromday.

    Side Effects

    Bromday eye drops can make patients feel like they have something in their eye(s). They can also cause conjunctival hyperemia and burning or stinging of the eye(s), eye pain, eye itchiness, eye redness, headache, and swelling or irritation of the colored ring around your pupil.

    Report any side effects that bother you or won't go away to your doctor.
