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

    Mirvaso gel is a topical medication applied to areas of the face. Your healthcare provider may prescribe it to treat rosacea.

    Rosacea is a skin condition with redness and visible blood vessels in the face. Other symptoms include red pus-filled bumps, dry skin, swollen nose, enlarged pores, and bumps on the eyelids. It can be mistaken for acne.

    The most common sufferers are women between 30-50 with light skin.

    Mirvaso contains the medication brimonidine, which is a selective alpha-2 adrenergic agonist. This type of medication constricts (tightens) the blood vessels of the face, treating rosacea.

    Directions

    Apply a small (pea-sized) amount to the face once daily. Mirvaso gel should be applied to the forehead, chin, cheeks, and nose.

    Do not get Mirvaso in the eyes or on the lips.

    Wash hands thoroughly after using this medication. 

    Ingredients

    Mirvaso gel contains brimonidine 0.33% as the active ingredient.

    Inactive ingredients of Mirvaso include carbomer homopolymer type B, glycerin, methylparaben, phenoxyethanol, propylene glycol, purified water, sodium hydroxide, and titanium dioxide.

    Interactions

    Mirvaso is a topical medication and does not have many interactions with other medications.

    However, since it constricts blood vessels, use caution with other medications that work the same way.

    Examples include:

    • Alpha agonists
    • Beta-blockers
    • Cardiac glycosides
    • Loop diuretics
    • Thiazide diuretics

    Cautions

    Mirvaso is only for use on the face. Do not use it in the eyes, mouth, or vagina.

    Tell your doctor if you have a history of cardiovascular issues. Brimonidine constricts the blood vessels and can cause vascular insufficiency.

    Side Effects

    Mirvaso gel side effects include:

    • Contact dermatitis 
    • Erythema
    • Flushing
    • Skin burning sensation
