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.

  • Product Details

    Description

    Nootropil (piracetam) is used with other medications to treat myoclonus, a nervous system condition that causes involuntary muscle twitching.

    Nootropil medicine is available in an 800 mg oral tablet.

    Directions

    Take Nootropil exactly as your doctor has prescribed. Discuss any questions or concerns with your doctor or pharmacist.

    The recommended starting dose is to take 9 tablets (7,200 mg) daily. Patients generally take 3 tablets in the morning, 3 tablets at noon, and 3 tablets in the evening. Take the tablets with a full glass of water. Swallow the tablets whole. Avoid crushing, chewing, or breaking them.
