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.

    Description

    Your doctor may prescribe Tivicay for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. This medication should only be prescribed by healthcare professionals trained in the management of HIV and AIDS. 

    Tivicay is usually not given on its own and will be given with other drugs that help to suppress HIV infection. These types of drugs are called Antiretroviral Therapy (ART).

    Tivicay works by shutting off a protein in HIV viral particles called integrase. Integrase is critical for the replication of HIV after it enters a human cell.

    The usual dose is 50 mg by mouth one to two times daily. The dose may be different depending on your individual circumstances.
