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.
Trurapi (insulin aspart) is a type of insulin that is prescribed to help manage blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes.
Trurapi is rapid-acting and should be administered immediately before (5-10 minutes) or immediately after a meal.
Trurapi comes in pre-filled disposable pens. Trurapi also comes in cartridges that are to be used with reusable JuniorStar® and AllStar® PRO pens only.
Use Trurapi as your healthcare provider has instructed. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
Your healthcare provider will tell you how to use Trurapi insulin, where to inject your insulin, how you should administer it, and how often you should administer it.
Trurapi is recommended to be injected underneath the skin of the upper arm, abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The injection site should be different with each injection.
Follow the storage instructions that come with your prescription. If you have any questions about storage, talk to your pharmacist.
Insulin aspart is the active ingredient in Trurapi.
Patients who are allergic to insulin aspart or to any of the other ingredients in the medication or container should not use Trurapi.
Patients who are experiencing active low blood sugar should not use Trurapi.
Serious Warnings and Precautions regarding Trurapi include:
Low blood sugar and injection site reactions are common side effects of Trurapi; however, these are not all the side effects that can occur. Contact your doctor right away if you develop side effects that bother you or won’t go away.
