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.


Heparin is a prescription blood thinner medication used for blood clots prevention when people at risk of developing them because of conditions or following a major surgery. This anticoagulant drug prevents platelets clumping together in the blood and forming clots that can be very dangerous if they begin to travel through arteries and into the brain, lungs, or heart. The Heparin antidote is the medication in a suspension that is injected for blood clot prevent and the Heparin drip is the same solution that will be delivered through an IV, most commonly after a major surgery when the patient is still hospitalized.
