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.


Chloroquine is an anti-infective medication effective against parasites. Your doctor may prescribe it to you to treat parasitic diseases like malaria and extraintestinal amebiasis.

Chloroquine malaria treatment works by disrupting the growth and metabolism of malaria in other intestines. It blocks the machinery used for cellular replication.


Take Chloroquine exactly as instructed by your doctor. The dosages are Chloroquine 250 mg and Chloroquine 500 mg.

The usual dose is based on what it is being used for:

  • Prevention of malaria: 500 mg once weekly on the same day each week, beginning 1-2 weeks before exposure to malaria. Continue for at least four weeks after exposure.
  • Treatment of amebiasis: 1 g once daily for two days, then 500 mg daily for 2-3 weeks
  • Treatment of malaria: 1 g on day 1, followed by 500 mg 6 hours later, followed by 500 mg 24 hours later, followed by 500 mg 48 hours later.


The active ingredient in Chloroquine is chloroquine sulfate.
