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.

    • Before starting your treatment with Nesina, inform your doctor about:
      • Any other medicines you are currently taking, including insulin or sulfonylureas, as they may increase the risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
      • Any medical conditions you are managing, such as pancreatitis, kidney disease, or liver problems.
      • If you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Nesina's impact on unborn or nursing babies isn't completely known, so discuss potential risks with your doctor.

    • Nesina may cause allergic reactions. Seek immediate medical help if you have symptoms of a serious allergic reaction like rash, itching, swelling of the face, throat or tongue, dizziness, or trouble breathing.
    • Nesina may increase the risk of liver failure. Symptoms of liver failure can include fatigue, loss of appetite, yellowing of the skin or eyes (jaundice), dark urine, light-colored stools, or swelling in your abdomen. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.
    • The use of Nesina may increase your risk of developing acute pancreatitis. Symptoms may include severe abdominal pain, often accompanied by vomiting. If you experience these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately. 
    • Nesina has been linked to postmarketing reports of bullous pemphigoid, a rare skin condition that causes large, fluid-filled blisters. Symptoms may include itchy skin, rash, or blisters. In severe cases, it may require hospitalization. If you observe any signs of this condition, seek immediate medical attention.
