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

    Incruse Ellipta is an inhaled medication that is used to treat Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD is a group of chronic diseases that includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

    The symptoms of COPD are progressive and can include shortness of breath, chronic cough, and wheezing.

    Incruse Ellipta works by stopping acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, from activating muscarinic receptors in the smooth muscle of the lungs. This effect causes bronchodilation, which is the relaxation of the airways, and makes it easier to breathe.

    Directions

    The standard dosage of Incruse Ellipta inhaler is one inhalation once daily.

    Incruse Ellipta is a maintenance medication, meaning it must be taken every day to be effective.
