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.
Renvela is a prescription kidney disease treatment medication used for hyperphosphatemia treatment so patients undergoing kidney dialysis have better treatment outcomes. The active ingredient in the medication - Sevelamer Carbonate - lowers blood phosphorous levels by binding to phosphorous in the blood and then directing it out of the body through excretory organs. Contributing to better kidney dialysis treatment with Renvela medication means the patient is less at risk of high blood pressure, breathing difficulties, or lessened brain function because of impaired kidney function.
