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


    The Sancuso Transdermal Patch is a prescription medication designed to combat nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. Sancuso is a patch that adheres to the skin and slowly releases granisetron, an antiemetic medication that effectively alleviates the distressing symptoms of nausea and vomiting.

    Sancuso is indicated for adult patients who are undergoing cancer chemotherapy, where nausea and vomiting are common side effects. It offers a convenient and discreet way to manage these symptoms, providing up to 5-7 days of continuous relief.

    The active ingredient in Sancuso, granisetron, works by blocking the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that triggers nausea and vomiting. Doing so helps patients experience a better quality of life during their cancer treatments.


    The usual directions are to apply a single patch to the upper arm 24-48 hours before chemotherapy. Remove the patch 24 hours after completion of chemotherapy. 

    Remove the patch after a maximum of seven consecutive days. 


    The active ingredient in Sancuso is granisetron.
