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.


Intelence is a long-term medication used for the suppression of HIV and AIDS. It is an antiviral medication that is typically prescribed by a specialist in the treatment of HIV.

HIV can develop into a potentially deadly condition called AIDS, where, over time, HIV viruses destroy the immune system, leaving a person open to opportunistic infections.

The Intelence drug prevents HIV replication by attacking a critical protein called Reverse Transcriptase (RT).
