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.


JARDIANCE (empagliflozin) is a medication used to improve blood glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. JARDIANCE diabetes medicine is also approved to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death in adults with both type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease.

JARDIANCE works by inhibiting sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) on the surface of certain kidney cells. SGTL2 is an enzyme responsible for reabsorbing glucose from the urine and placing it back into cardiovascular circulation instead of being excreted in the urine. By preventing the function of this enzyme, JARDIANCE prevents the reabsorption of glucose, lowering blood sugar.

Diabetes mellitus 2 is an endocrine disorder where a person has increased resistance to the endogenous hormone insulin or they do not produce enough for their body's needs. Insulin is a signaling molecule that tells cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream into the cells’ interior. Patients with type 2 diabetes have abnormal levels of blood glucose because their body is not able to process and manage their blood glucose.

JARDIANCE and other SGTL2 inhibitors have been linked to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a potentially life-threatening condition where the body breaks down fats leading to increased ketone bodies. DKA is a medical emergency; signs and symptoms may include: confusion, excessive thirst, fruit-scented breath, nausea and vomiting, stomach pain, and weakness.
