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

    Description

    For people with Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), the disease is chronic and life-changing. A doctor may prescribe Evotaz to prevent further development of AIDS and progression of symptoms.

    AIDS is caused by Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1), which is currently incurable. However, medications like Evotaz prevent the replication of viral particles, slowing the infection.

    Directions

    The dosage of Evotaz is one tablet by mouth once daily. Do not change your dosage without speaking to your doctor. 

    Ingredients

    Evotaz has two active ingredients: atazanavir 300 mg and cobicistat 150 mg.

    Atazanavir blocks a critical protein in HIV viral particles and prevents it from replicating. Cobicistat "boosts" the amount of atazanavir in the bloodstream by slowing its metabolism.
