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.

    Routes of administration



    Once you are prescribed then buy Jentadueto, take it twice daily as directed by your doctor. There are different dosages for this medication based on how well it is working.


    The active ingredients in Jentadueto are linagliptin and metformin. There is no Jentadueto generic available.

    Linagliptin works by shutting down an enzyme called DPP4, which is responsible for recycling certain hormones in the gastrointestinal tract. By shutting down this enzyme, the amount of insulin and glucose in the blood is rebalanced.

    Metformin works by reducing the amount of glucose produced in the liver and by making the body more sensitive to insulin.
