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


    Sotyktu is a prescribed medication containing deucravacitinib, which is indicated for treating moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis in adults who are candidates for system therapy or phototherapy.

    Sotyktu is a tyrosine kinase 2 (TYK2) inhibitor that targets key pathways involved in immune responses. It works by binding the regulatory domain of TYK2 and stabilizing the interaction between multiple domains on the target enzyme, causing an inhibition of activity. Ultimately, Sotyktu causes widespread inhibition of the immune response. The exact mechanism of psoriasis is unclear.


    The usual dosage is 6 mg orally once daily, with or without food.

    Take it exactly as your healthcare provider directs, following the prescribed dosage and schedule.


    The active ingredient in Sotyktu is deucravacitinib.
