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.

    Description

    Latisse Eye Solution is a prescription medication that elongates eyelashes. It is approved for the treatment of hypotrichosis of the eyelashes.

    Latisse is a prostaglandin analog, which is a type of signal molecule that exists throughout the body. It works by increasing the amount of hair in the growth phase and for how long they remain in the growth phase. 

    Directions

    Place one drop on the applicator and apply evening along the skin of the upper eyelid near the base of the eyelashes. Latisse should be applied once daily at bedtime. Repeat for the second eye once daily at night.

    It may take up to two months to see noticeable eyelash growth. Latisse needs to be used daily to notice the effects.

    Cautions
