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: Ipratropium Bromide(i-pra-TROE-pee-um BROE-mide) and Albuterol (al-BYOO-ter-ole)
Albuterol is also known as Salbutemol Suplhate.

COMBIVENT is a metered dose inhaler indicated for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is recommended for patients that are on a regular aerosol bronchodilator who continue to have evidence of bronchospasm and who require a second bronchodilator.

COMBIVENT is a short-acting bronchodilator that provides two different medications - ipratropium bromide and albuterol sulfate. Together, these medications help prevent wheezing, shortness of breath, and troubled breathing caused by COPD. It works by relaxing and opening up the air passages to the lungs, making it easier to breathe.

Patients may take additional inhalations as require but, the total number of inhalations should not exceed 12 in 24 hours.

Before inhaling, shake the medication well. This is important for proper product performance. Do it before every spray. If you are using COMBIVENT for the first time or the aerosol has not been used for over 24 hours, shake the medication for at least 10 seconds and "test spray" into the air three times.
