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.

    After surgery, your doctor may prescribe Persantine to prevent blood clots. Blood clots occur during the healing process, which can break off and cause permanent damage. Persantine helps to prevent the formation of these clots.

    The active ingredient in Persantine is dipyridamole. Its mechanism of action involves widening the blood vessels, thereby improving blood flow and enhancing oxygen delivery to the heart.
