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

Hyalgan (sodium hyaluronate) is an injectable medication used to treat osteoarthritis of the knee. It works by replacing the missing synovial fluid of the joint to provide lubrication and shock-absorption. You can buy Hyalgan at Canada Drugs Direct as a 20mg/2mL syringe for injection. Store your syringes at temperatures below 25?, but do not freeze them. Keep Hyalgan out of reach of children.

Directions

  • Your doctor will give you your Hyalgan injection at their office.
  • The usual dose is:
    • One injection of 2mL into the knee once per week for five weeks.
    • Some patients only require three weeks of therapy to see adequate results.
