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.


Afinitor Disperz, also known by its generic name Everolimus, is a medication that acts as an mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) inhibitor, a type of drug that may help regulate cell growth, proliferation, and survival of cancer. It's typically used to treat a variety of conditions, including certain types of tumors and seizures associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) in both adults and children aged 2 years and above. By blocking mTOR, Afinitor Disperz can slow down the growth of cancer cells and reduce the frequency of seizures for those with TSC.


Patients should take Afinitor Disperz exactly as prescribed by a healthcare professional. The standard Afinitor Disperz dosage typically involves dispersing the tablet to form a suspension, which is then taken orally. Afinitor Disperz should not be chewed or crushed. The dosage will depend on the condition being treated, but the drug is usually taken once daily. The suspension should be administered within 60 minutes of preparation.


The active ingredient in Afinitor Disperz is Everolimus. The medication may also contain inactive ingredients to support the stability and absorption of the active ingredient.


Avoid taking this medication if you have a known or suspected hypersensitivity to Everolimus, rapamycin derivatives, or any ingredients in the drug.
