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.

    Description

    Dificid is a prescription C. difficile associated diarrhea treatment medication that is used to limit the severity of diarrhea and reduce the frequency of it by clearing the bacterial infection in the intestine. Fidaxomicin is in the macrolide antibiotic class of drugs and it works by stopping the growth of bacteria so that chronic diarrhea along with symptoms like stomach pain and blood or mucus in the stool are minimized and do not last as long. You may want to make temporary diet changes while using Dificid medication to maximize its effectiveness plus greater reduction in gastrointestinal upset.
