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.

Description

Chemical Name IMIQUIMOD (i-mi-KWI-mod)

ALDARA is an immune response modifier used to treat actinic keratosis (a condition caused by too much sun exposure) on the face and scalp. It is also used to treat a minor form of skin cancer called superficial basal cell carcinoma, when surgery would not be an appropriate treatment.

ALDARA also treats genital warts that appear on the outside of the body, but this medicine is not a cure for genital warts. Imiquimod may be used in adults and children who are at least 12 years.

Directions

Use ALDARA exactly as directed by your doctor. Using too much of this medicine, or using it for too long can increase your risk of severe skin reactions.

Before applying ALDARA, wash your hands and wash the skin area to be treated. Allow the skin to dry for at least 10 minutes before applying the medicine. Always wash your hands after applying the medicine also. Do not use ALDARA on areas of broken, wounded, or burned skin. Wait until these conditions have healed before using ALDARA.

Cautions

To make sure you can safely take ALDARA, patients should discuss their medical history with their doctor. Before using ALDARA, inform your doctor if you:

  • sunburn or other skin problems
  • a weak immune system or autoimmune disorder
  • graft-versus-host disease
  • if you have recently been treated for actinic keratosis or genital warts with surgery or other medications
  • if you have recently received a bone marrow transplant or cord blood transplant
  • pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant
  • breastfeeding or planning on breastfeeding

Side Effects

Most medications can cause side effects which can be defined as an unwanted response to a medication when it is taken in normal doses. Side effects can range from mild or severe, temporary or permanent. Side effects are not experienced all patients who take this medication. Many side effects can be managed, and others may go away over time.

Common side effects include mild skin irritation, itching, dryness, flaking, scabbing, crusting, redness, or hardening of the skin where the medicine was applied; changes in the color of treated skin; headache, dizziness, chest pain, back pain; cold sores, fever blisters; cold symptoms such as stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat; nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite or vaginal itching or discharge.

Serious side effect may include flu symptoms such as fever, chills, body aches, tired feeling, swollen glands. When treating genital warts around the vagina, if you have severe swelling or urination problems, stop using ALDARA and call your doctor right away.

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction (hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat).

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about additional side effects.
