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.

    Gelsyn-3 is a prescription product that a healthcare professional administers in a clinical setting. It is used for the treatment of pain in people with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee if the person has failed to respond to conventional therapy. Gelsyn-3 is an injection that goes directly into the knee.

    Gelsyn-3 contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring molecule that is made in knee joints. HA injections help to alleviate pain by providing lubrication in the joints.
