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

    Your doctor may prescribe Glyxambi if you have type 2 diabetes mellitus. Glyxambi should not be prescribed for people with type 1 diabetes mellitus.

    Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition where a person does not have enough insulin to meet their metabolic needs. This can happen through a combination of insulin resistance and decreased pancreatic function.

    Directions

    Take one tablet by mouth once daily. Glyxambi is available in 10/5 mg and 25/5 mg formulations.

    Glyxambi can be taken with or without food. It should be taken at the same time every day.

    Ingredients

    The active ingredients in Glyxambi are empagliflozin and linagliptin.

    Empagliflozin works by increasing the amount of glucose excreted through the urine.
