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.


You may be prescribed Antivert to treat symptoms of motion sickness, such as nausea, vomiting, and dizziness. It is also used to treat vertigo, a condition that causes a sensation of spinning or tilting even when the person is stationary.

Antivert is an antihistamine that works by blocking histamine receptors in the brain and reducing the activity of the vestibular system, which is responsible for balance and spatial orientation.
