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


    Pertzye is a capsule that contains pancreatic enzymes, including lipase, protease, and amylase. These enzymes naturally occur in the pancreas of healthy individuals. However, some people may need pancreatic enzymes to digest food properly. This drug can be prescribed to people with pancreatic insufficiency, including those with cystic fibrosis.

    People with pancreatic insufficiency do not produce enough enzymes to digest their foods properly. Symptoms can include abdominal pain, diarrhea, and fatty stool.

    Pertzye works by breaking down fat and other substances in the food to aid with digestion. This drug should be taken with every meal.


    Pertzye dosage is different for everyone. Take this drug exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider.

    The starting dosage is 500 lipase units per kilogram of body weight per meal. The dosage may be increased to a maximum of 2500 lipase units per kilogram of body weight per meal.


    The active ingredients in Pertzye are pancreatic enzymes and include lipase, amylase, and protease.


    Do not take Pertzye if you have an allergy to pork products or cannot have pork products for any reason.

    Do not chew or crush capsules when taking them.
