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.

    Routes of administration



    Venofer is supplied as a solution for intravenous (IV) injection in concentrations of 50 mg/2,5 mL, 100 mg/5 mL, and 200 mg/10 mL in single-dose vials. The dosage and treatment regimen of Venofer are tailored based on factors such as iron levels and the age of the person being treated.

    The initial test dose for adults is 25 mg of iron sucrose over 15 minutes. If there are no adverse reactions within an hour, the remaining Venofer dose can be administered. Typically, a total dose infusion of 1000 mg over 3.5 to 4 hours is recommended for most patients. The medication must be administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional.


    The active ingredient in Venofer is iron sucrose, which is a complex sugar that helps the body absorb and store iron, promoting the production of red blood cells.
