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


    Vyloma, also known as Imiquimod, is a medication classed as an immune response modifier. It activates the body's immune system to target and fight certain skin conditions. Doctors prescribe Vyloma cream primarily for the treatment of external genital and perianal warts.


    Vyloma is applied topically as a thin layer to the affected skin area just before bedtime. It's important to rub the cream in gently and leave it on for the designated time. Treatment for genital warts may require keeping the cream on for around eight hours. During these hours, patients should avoid bathing, swimming, or wetting the treated area in any way to ensure the medication's efficacy. Vyloma is typically used for up to eight weeks.


    Vyloma contains the active ingredient Imiquimod.


    Avoid taking or using this medication if you have a known hypersensitivity or allergy to Imiquimod or any component of the formula.


    • Talk to a healthcare provider about the following before using Vyloma cream:
      • Any allergies you may have
      • If you are currently pregnant or nursing
      • All other health conditions you're living with
      • Any medications you are presently taking
    • Vyloma is not recommended for treating human papilloma virus (HPV) infections inside the urethra, vagina, cervix, rectum, or anus due to the sensitive nature of these areas.
    • Common reactions at the application site include redness, scabbing or crusting, flaking, scaling, dryness, and swelling. These reactions can get intense after just a few uses, possibly requiring a break in treatment. In particular, Vyloma can worsen existing skin inflammations or conditions.
    • For women, applying Vyloma on the external genitalia can sometimes lead to serious swelling, which might result in difficulty urinating. If this happens, treatment should be paused or stopped.
    • Make sure your skin is fully healed from any previous treatments or surgeries before starting Vyloma. If a severe skin reaction happens, wash off the cream and consult your doctor about possibly stopping or pausing treatment until the reaction subsides.
    • Alongside skin reactions, you might experience flu-like symptoms, including tiredness, nausea, fever, muscle aches, joint pain, and chills. If these symptoms occur, discuss with your doctor whether you should adjust your dose or take a break from treatment.
    • Animal studies suggest that Vyloma might increase skin tumor development when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. It's advised to minimize or avoid exposure to sunlight (natural or artificial) on treated areas.
    • The safety of Vyloma in people with weakened immune systems or pre-existing autoimmune conditions hasn't been established. Also, hypersensitivity reactions like hives and erythema multiforme have been reported, so stop using Vyloma immediately if these occur.
    • While animal studies didn't show harm to fetuses, there's no conclusive evidence for its safety in pregnant women. Use Vyloma during pregnancy only if necessary. It's also unknown if Vyloma passes into breast milk, so caution is advised for nursing mothers.
    • The safety and effectiveness of Vyloma for treating external genital/perianal warts in individuals under 18 have not been established. While there's limited data on users over 65, sensitivity in older individuals cannot be ruled out.

    Side Effects

    Vyloma commonly causes skin reactions at the application site, including redness, swelling, sores, blisters, ulcers, pain, irritation, bleeding, discharge, thickened skin, peeling, scabbing, crusting, itching, burning, and changes in skin color that may persist. Beyond the application site, patients might experience pain, fever, muscle aches, headaches, back and joint aches, tiredness, flu-like symptoms, nausea, and diarrhea. The treatment area may look significantly different from normal skin until healing is complete.

    Severe skin reactions can occur, especially if the cream is overused or applied incorrectly. If skin reactions impact daily activities or do not improve, usage should be halted immediately, and a healthcare provider consulted. Treatment may need to be paused to allow skin recovery. Hypersensitivity reactions, including difficulty breathing, swelling of the mouth or throat, skin rashes, or other allergic symptoms, require stopping the cream and immediate medical attention. New warts may appear during treatment as Vyloma might not be a cure. Patients should discuss any concerns or excessive reactions with their healthcare provider.
