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.

    Warnings and Precautions

    WARNING: HEPATOTOXICITY

    See full prescribing information for complete boxed warnings.

    Hepatotoxicity has been reported which may be preceded by severe rash or other features of a systemic allergic reaction (e.g., fever, eosinophilia, or elevated IgE). 

    Immediately evaluate patients with signs or symptoms of hepatitis or allergic reaction.

    Side Effects

    • You should discuss any allergies you may have with your doctor. Selzentry may contain ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction in those who are allergic to maraviroc or any of the ingredients in Selzentry.
    • Make sure you tell your doctor about any medications you take, including prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins, and herbal supplements as some medicines may interact with Selzentry.
    • Hepatotoxicity, or liver damage, with a severe rash or allergic reaction has been reported. Before starting Selzentry and at other times when clinically appropriate, labs including AST, ALT, and bilirubin should be obtained. If you develop a rash, an allergic reaction, or symptoms of hepatitis, hepatic laboratory parameters should be obtained and discontinuation of Selzentry should be considered.
    • Severe and potentially life-threatening skin and allergic reactions, including Stevens-Johnson syndrome, hypersensitivity reaction, and toxic epidermal necrolysis, have been reported. Immediately stop taking Selzentry and monitor closely if you develop a rash, fever, fatigue, muscles aches, blisters, eye inflammation, or facial swelling. Liver aminotransferases should also be monitored.
    • Tell your doctor if you have cardiovascular problems or if you have risk factors for cardiovascular problems. Cardiovascular events have been observed in patients taking Selzentry. 
    • If you have severe kidney problems or ESRD while taking Selzentry and you experience sudden drops in blood pressure when you stand from sitting or lying down, the dose should be decreased from 300 mg twice a day to 150 mg twice a day.
    • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. There is not enough data regarding the effects and safety of taking Selzentry while pregnant. There is a pregnancy registry that collects information and monitors the health of mom and baby while taking Selzentry during your pregnancy.
    • Tell your doctor if you breastfeed or plan to breastfeed. You should not breastfeed while taking Selzentry. You should also not breastfeed if you have HIV-1 because it can be passed to your baby through breastmilk.
