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.


Jorveza (budesonide), classified as a corticosteroid, is available by prescription as a treatment for eosinophilic esophagitis in adults.

Jorveza comes in a 1 mg orodispersible tablet.


Jorveza (budesonide) should be taken as directed by your doctor. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns about the medication.

Recommended dose: one tablet by mouth in the morning and one tablet by mouth in the evening. Avoid chewing or crushing the tablet. Place the tablet on the tip of your tongue. Gently press it to the roof of your mouth and allow it to dissolve. It should be completely dissolved within two minutes. Take the medication after a meal. Wait at least 30 minutes before you consume food or drink or complete oral hygiene. Avoid using oral solutions, sprays, or chewable tablets for at least 30 minutes before or after taking the medication.


Budesonide is the active ingredient in Jorveza. Anhydrous monosodium citrate, disodium hydrogen citrate, docusate sodium, macrogol 6000, magnesium stearate, mannitol, povidone K25, sodium hydrogen carbonate, and sucralose are the inactive ingredients included in each tablet.


Do not take Jorveza if you have an allergy to the medication or to any of its other ingredients.

Do not take Jorveza if you have uncontrolled infections or active tuberculosis.


  • Before you begin treatment with Jorveza, inform your doctor of:

  • If you are going from a glucocorticosteroid with higher systemic effect, use caution.
  • Patients with liver problems may need to avoid Jorveza, as the medication may not be fully eliminated from the body. This can increase the risk of side effects, but no systemic data is available.
