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 healthcare provider may prescribe a medication called Sialor. It is an uncommonly prescribed medication that can be used to treat dry mouth from various causes. It is a salivary stimulant intended to counteract xerostomia (dry mouth) resulting from the adverse effects of certain medications or other conditions.

    Dry mouth is characterized by discomfort and potential pain, often manifested as difficulty in eating and swallowing. This condition may stem from various origins, including medication-induced side effects and underlying health conditions. 

    Sialor increases saliva production and can improve problems related to speech, swallowing, and digestion. Furthermore, it contributes to the reduction of dental decay risk, thereby bolstering overall oral health.

    The precise mechanism of action remains unclear. Researchers believe Sialor increases the number of muscarinic receptors present on salivary acinar cells. Additionally, Sialor appears to augment the levels of substance P and alpha-calcitonin gene-related peptide, both of which play pivotal roles in the process of saliva production.


    Take Sialor exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The usual dosage is 25 mg orally three times a day before meals. 

    If soft stools occur, the dosage can be adjusted to 25 mg during morning and evening meals. 

    The therapeutic effects of Sialor may take a few days to become noticeable. 

    Treatment is usually daily, with the option of incorporating five drug-free days each month.


    The active ingredient in Sialor is anethol trithione.


    • There are no known drug-drug interactions between Sialor and other medications.


    Patients should inform their healthcare provider of any relevant medical history, including cardiovascular disease, kidney or liver issues, previous cancers, or allergies.

    Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should consult their doctor before using Sialor.
