Information and Use of Daliresp 500 mcg
Daliresp is an anti-inflammatory drug. It acts as a selective long-acting inhibitor of the enzyme phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE-4). It is used to treat the inflammatory conditions of the lungs like chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD). Remember, it is not a bronchodilator, so it will not treat a case of bronchospasm that has already started. It is used to control and prevent the symptoms of COPD like wheezing and shortness of breath.
For effective control and treatment of COPD, Daliresp has to be combined with bronchodilator drugs. Daliresp does not work immediately so for effectiveness; it has to be regularly used. Thus, it should not be used for immediate relief of wheezing or shortness of breath; instead, bronchodilators should be administered.

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.
