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.

    Corticosteroids may increase the risk of infection. Tell your physician before starting ENTOCORT if you have chronic viral, fungal, or bacterial infections such as hepatitis, tuberculosis, or herpes simplex.

    Tell your doctor if you develop muscle pains and aches while taking ENTOCORT.

    • Arthralgia
    • Bruise

    As with all systemic corticosteroids, there are many potential side effects. Speak with your doctor or pharmacist for the full list of side effects and which are most likely to impact you. ENTOCORT may have a higher likelihood of causing side effects in certain medical conditions.
