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

    Your doctor may prescribe Mirapex ER to treat Parkinson's disease

    Parkinson's disease is a chronic condition that typically develops in adults aged 60 years or older. Symptoms can affect all systems in the body and may include:

    • Difficulty walking
    • Dizziness
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle rigidity
    • Problems with coordination

    Mirapex ER is a dopamine agonist that works by binding to D2 dopamine receptors, which stimulates the activity of cells in the nervous system. Activating dopamine receptors helps to reduce the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
