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


    Your doctor may prescribe Rinvoq for severe active rheumatoid arthritis if you have already tried and failed other medications like methotrexate. Rinvoq is sometimes given along with methotrexate and other medications for rheumatoid arthritis.

    Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the joints, including the hands, knees, and feet. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, tenderness, and swelling in the joints. 

    Rinvoq works by decreasing the activity of the immune system. By lowering the activity of the immune system, Rinvoq decreases symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
