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.

    Directions

    Use Transderm-V as your doctor has prescribed. Carefully read and follow the instructions that come with your Transderm-V motion sickness patch prescription. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

    1. Choose an area of skin behind the ear that does not have hair, cuts, or irritations and clean the area with a dry tissue.
    2. Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water. 
    3. Remove the patch from its pouch and peel off its clear protective liner. 
    4. Apply the adhesive surface (metallic side) of the patch to the dry area of skin behind the ear. 
    5. Press firmly to ensure that it sticks well. 
    6. Wash your hands with soap and water after the application. 
    7. Remove the patch after three days and, if needed, place a new patch behind the other ear.

    It's important that you keep the patch dry to reduce the risk of it falling off; however, if it does fall off, you may place a new patch behind the other ear.

    Ingredients

    Each patch contains 1.5 mg of scopolamine. Inactive ingredients include light mineral oil/paraffin, light liquid, and polyisobutylene.
