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.

  • Product Details


    Ultimed pen needles are used for the administration of insulin. Insulin can treat high blood sugar in people with type 1 diabetes mellitus and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Insulin cannot be given by mouth because enzymes in the digestive tract will break it down, so it must be given by injection.

    When using insulin pens, pen needles are needed to inject the medication.

    Ultimed pen needles come in different sizes and lengths for injection into subcutaneous tissue. Subcutaneous tissue is the layer of fat between the skin and the muscle cells. Insulin is injected into this tissue and then slowly releases into the bloodstream.

    Ultimed pen needles will fit most types of insulin pens.


    Your healthcare provider or pharmacist should provide instructions when using pen needles for the first time.

    To use Ultimed pen needles, attach one pen needle to the end of the insulin pen. You may need to prime the pen if using it for the first time. 

    Inject insulin into the subcutaneous tissue at a 90-degree angle using the dose determined by your doctor. Leave the needle in the skin for approximately five seconds after injecting. Insulin is typically injected into the abdomen, but other sites include the legs and the back of the arms.


    Pen needles should be changed after each injection and are designed for one use.

    Do not share needles with other people.

    Dispose of pen needles in an appropriate location according to your local laws and regulations.
