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.

Nicorette gum 2mg is used for therapy known as nicotine replacement therapy used to help adults who want to quit smoking. On quitting smoking, patients face withdrawal due to lack of nicotine which results in irritability, mood swings, restlessness, trouble in concentrating, increase in appetite, etc. Nicorette gum helps in reducing these symptoms by providing some amount of nicotine which a patient no longer receives through a cigarette. The dose is reduced gradually unless the person no longer craves nicotine.
The use of this gum is best if you are planning to quit smoking completely. The gum works best if used with a comprehensive program to quit smoking. 2mg Nicorette gum is strongly suggested to pregnant and lactating women who are planning to quit smoking.
