What is DDAVP?Chemical Name: DESMOPRESSIN (des-moe-PRESS-in)
Desmopressin is a synthetic hormone which our pituitary gland otherwise makes naturally. This hormone performs vital functions in our body. Our blood flow, blood pressure, kidney function and utilization of water by our body, are some of its important regulatory functions. DDAVP medicine is used in the treatment of diabetes insipidus (water diabetes) and certain kinds of head injuries and brain surgeries. Normally, vasopressin is a substance that is secreted by the pituitary gland which controls the amount of urine formed by the body. The levels of vasopressin decrease in the conditions mentioned above. Desmopressin is an artificial vasopressin, and it helps in normalizing the decreasing levels of vasopressin.
DDAVP also helps in bedwetting by decreasing the amount of urine formed. Furthermore, it’s also used for treating hemophilia A, Von Willebrand disease and high levels of urea.

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.
