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

FIASP (Insulin Aspart) is a prescription drug that can be taken to treat high blood sugar in people with diabetes mellitus. People with diabetes often need additional insulin to help regulate their blood sugar. FIASP is a “mealtime” insulin that can be given between on to three times daily.

Directions

The doctor will determine the appropriate dose when FIASP is prescribed. The dosage is based on blood sugar readings, diet, physical activity, and diabetes goals.

Inject FIASP subcutaneously before meals. Rotate injection sites to avoid lipodystrophy.

FIASP can be injected at the beginning of a meal or up to 20 minutes after eating.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in FIASP is Insulin Aspart. Insulin Aspart is a rapid-acting insulin that begins working in about 20 minutes and lasts for about five hours.

Interactions

Medications can have an impact on the blood sugar of diabetes. If you take certain medications, you may need to adjust your insulin dose based on blood sugar readings. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any of the following:

  • Atypical Antipsychotics
  • Corticosteroids
  • Disopyramide
  • Diuretics
  • Estrogens/Progesterones
