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.

    Cautions

    Once you are prescribed and buy Steglatro, know that there are certain medications that may interact with Steglatro. Before you start taking Steglatro, tell your doctor about any vitamins, herbal supplements, prescription, and over-the-counter medications you take. 

    • Stop taking Steglatro and call your doctor if you experience symptoms of ketoacidosis, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and breathing problems.
    • Stelagtro may increase your risk for leg or foot amputation. Immediately call your doctor if you experience new pain, tenderness, sores, infections, or ulcers in your lower limbs. Your doctor may then stop your Stelagtro.
    • Before starting Steglatro, your kidney function should be evaluated and volume status corrected. Immediately tell your doctor if you are unable to eat or drink regularly or if you have nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or have been in the heat too long because you could be dehydrated. Dehydration can cause kidney damage.
    • If you are taking Steglatro with other medications that can lower your blood sugar, your blood sugar levels can drop. Use caution and monitor for symptoms of low blood sugar such as hunger, headache, irritability, shakiness, sweating, confusion, weakness, or a fast heartbeat. You should treat your low blood sugar as your doctor has instructed.
    • You should seek medical care right away if you develop a fever or feel fatigued, weak, and have pain, swelling, or redness around your anus and genitals. These could be signs of a rare but serious bacterial infection that can damage the tissues beneath the skin near your anus and genitals.
    • Consult your doctor if you have odor or white to yellowish discharge coming from your vagina or if you have vaginal itching. These could be signs that you have a vaginal yeast infection.
    • Consult your doctor if you have pain, redness, itching, or swelling of your penis or if you have an odorous discharge that is coming from your penis. These could be signs that you have a penile yeast infection.
    • Tell your doctor if you experience changes in urination, have pain or burning when urinating or if your urine is cloudy, light-pink, or red as these can be signs that you have a urinary tract infection.
    • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Because there is potential risk to the fetus, you should avoid taking Steglatro during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.
    • Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. You should avoid taking Steglatro if you are breastfeeding.
