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.

    SYMBICORT is a medicated inhaler used to prevent bronchospasm in patients suffering from asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The SYMBICORT medication works as an asthma controller, made from a combination of two drugs - budesonide and formoterol. Pulmicort (budesonide) is a steroid that improves asthma symptoms by decreasing irritation and inflammation, while foradil (formoterol) is a long-acting bronchodilator that relieves bronchoconstriction.

    SYMBICORT should be used exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all patient instructions for how to use SYMBICORT Inhaler.
