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.

    Azathioprine 50 mg (Imuran) Imuran (Azathioprine)

    Imuran is also known as Azathioprine chemically. Imuran 50mg is used to prevent organ rejection in people who have received a kidney transplant.

    Azathioprine 50mg is usually taken along with other medicines to allow your kidney transplant to function normally. This medication is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and in this condition, the immune system of the body starts to attack the healthy joints in your body.
