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


    Otixal, a prescription ear drop medication, combines ciprofloxacin and fluocinolone, offering a dual-action approach to address various ear conditions, specifically targeting infections and inflammation within the ear.

    Otixal is indicated for treating acute otitis media (ear infection) in pediatric patients aged six months and older. It demonstrates efficacy in eliminating specific bacteria responsible for causing ear infections.



    Otixal is supplied in single-use vials. To administer, tilt the head to the side and instill the contents of one vial into the ear. Gently pump the small cartilage in front of the ear canal four times to facilitate the penetration of medication into the ear. Maintain the head tilted for one minute with the medication in the ear.


    Follow the prescribed dosage and duration of treatment as directed by your healthcare provider. Do not discontinue the treatment before completing the full course. If you have any concerns or questions, consult your doctor.


    Inform your doctor if symptoms persist beyond seven days of treatment.
