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.

Directions

Albalon is available as eye drops in a 0.1% concentration. The recommended usage is 1 to 2 drops in the affected eye(s) every 3 to 4 hours as needed, or as directed by your doctor. Avoid touching the applicator tip to the eye or any other surface to prevent contamination.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in Albalon is naphazoline hydrochloride.

Contraindications

Discuss your allergies with your doctor. Do not use Albalon if you are allergic to naphazoline or any of the other ingredients in Albalon. Avoid using Albalon if you have narrow-angle glaucoma. 

Cautions

  • Before you start using Albalon, tell your doctor: 
    • About any medications you take, especially high blood pressure medicines, MAO inhibitors, or tricyclic antidepressants.
    • About any medical conditions you have, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or an overactive thyroid. 
    • If you wear contact lenses. Remove them before using Albalon and wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting them.
    • If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Albalon should only be used when clearly needed during pregnancy. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. 
    • If you are breastfeeding. Discuss with your doctor before use, as it is unknown if naphazoline passes into breast milk. 
  • Albalon may cause blurred vision temporarily. Do not drive or use machinery until you can see clearly. 
  • If your symptoms persist for more than 72 hours, or if you have eye pain, changes in vision, continued redness, or irritation of the eye(s), stop using Albalon and consult your doctor immediately. 
  • Overuse of this type of medication may result in increased eye redness (rebound effect when medication is stopped). 
  • Avoid contaminating the medicine container by not touching it to the eye or any other surface.

Side Effects

Common side effects of Albalon include temporary eye burning or stinging, temporary blurred vision, dry eyes, or eye discomfort. Systemic side effects may include dizziness, headache, and nausea, among others. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects, contact your doctor.

With a valid prescription, you can buy Albalon drops online.
