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.

  • Product Details


    Duaklir Pressair is a prescription inhaler that can be used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is a group of diseases that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

    For people with COPD, the airways of their lungs become hardened and inflamed. It becomes more difficult to breathe because oxygen does not pass as easily into the lungs.

    Duaklir Pressair contains two different medications that help relax the airways of the lungs and make it easier to breathe.
