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.

Xeomin is an injection containing incobotulinumtoxinA (Botulinum toxin type A). IncobotulinumtoxinA is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. Xeomin is used to treat the abnormal head position and neck pain that happens with cervical dystonia (CD) in adults. Xeomin is also used to treat blepharospasm (an abnormal contraction or twitch of the eyelid) in adults previously treated with onabotulinumtoxinA (Botox). Xeomin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
The botulinum toxin contained in Xeomin can spread to other body areas beyond where it was injected. This has caused serious life-threatening side effects in some people receiving Xeomin. Call your doctor at once if you have a hoarse voice, drooping eyelids, vision problems, severe muscle weakness, loss of bladder control, or trouble breathing, talking, or swallowing. Some of these effects can occur up to several weeks after receiving a Xeomin injection. Xeomin should be given only by a trained medical professional. Do not seek botulinum toxin injections from more than one medical professional at a time. If you switch healthcare providers, be sure to tell your new provider how long it has been since your last botulinum toxin injection. Using Xeomin more often than prescribed will not make it more effective and may result in serious side effects. You should not receive Xeomin if you are allergic to botulinum toxin, or if you have an infection, swelling, or muscle weakness in the area where the medicine will be injected. Before receiving Xeomin injection, tell your doctor if you have ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, a breathing disorder, trouble swallowing, facial muscle weakness, a change in the appearance of your face, seizures, bleeding problems, heart disease, diabetes, if you have had or will have surgery, or if you have ever received other botulinum toxin injections such as Botox, Myobloc or Dysport. The effects of Xeomin injection are temporary. Your symptoms may return completely within 3 months after an injection. After repeat injections, it may take less and less time before your symptoms return, especially if your body develops antibodies to the botulinum toxin.
