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.

    Take Danocrine exactly as your doctor has prescribed. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about any questions or concerns you may have about the medication.

    The dosage of Danocrine depends on the condition being treated. Your doctor will tell you how much Danocrine is right for you and how long you should take the medication.


    Danazol is the active ingredient contained in each Danocrine capsule. Inactive ingredients include corn starch, lactose, magnesium stearate, talc, D and C yellow #10, FD and C red #40, gelatin, silicon dioxide, sodium lauryl sulfate, and titanium dioxide.
