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



    JARDIANCE (empagliflozin) is a medication prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. JARDIANCE is prescribed in combination with diet and exercise to help improve blood glucose control. JARDIANCE may also be prescribed to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death in people with both type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease.

    JARDIANCE is a sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor. SGLT2 is a protein on the surface of certain kidney cells. When the kidney filters blood to urine, glucose is filtered out but pulled back into the blood by SGLT2. JARDIANCE blocks SGLT2, so when glucose is filtered into the urine, it cannot be pulled back into the blood. This lowers blood glucose and helps to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus.

    Speak with your doctor before starting JARDIANCE if you have a history of low blood pressure (hypotension) or are taking diuretics for heart or fluid conditions. JARDIANCE can change the amount of fluid in your body, potentially worsening these conditions.

    JARDIANCE and similar medications have been linked to a serious condition called diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). During DKA, the blood sugar is very high but cannot be utilized by the cells of the body, so instead, they break down fat molecules. DKA is a medical emergency and signs and symptoms can include fruit-scented breath, higher thirst, nausea and vomiting, stomach pain, weakness, and confusion.

    Speak with your doctor if you have a history of kidney problems before starting JARDIANCE.

    While taking JARDIANCE, you may have an increased risk of urinary tract infection. JARDIANCE and similar medications cause the kidney to excrete higher amounts of glucose, which can act as food for bacteria.

    JARDIANCE may increase LDL cholesterol, so you should be monitored for changes while taking this medication.
