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.


Jadenu is a chelating agent, and Jadenu uses include lowering iron in the blood of people who have higher-than-average iron levels after a blood transfusion. After receiving this medication, a person requires ongoing monitoring and therapy. It should only be prescribed by a physician trained in using chelating agents.

Jadenu is an iron-chelating agent that works by attaching to high levels of iron and the blood to decrease serum iron concentrations. After binding to iron, the Jadenu-iron complex is excreted in the feces.


Jadenu is dosed according to weight. Do not change your dosage without first speaking with the prescriber. The dose is usually adjusted every 3-6 months based on blood iron levels. 


The active ingredient in Jadenu is deferasirox.
