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

Your doctor may prescribe ketoprofen for the short-term management of pain conditions. It is approved to treat pain in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, dysmenorrhea and can be used off-label for ankylosing spondylitis.

Ketoprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). These types of drugs are also available over-the-counter (OTC), but prescription strength medications like ketoprofen are available. 

Some of the enzymes responsible for pain and inflammation are COX-1 and COX-2. Ketoprofen works by shutting down these enzymes.

Directions

The standard ketoprofen dosage is between 75-300 mg by mouth throughout the day. 

The dosage should be split into three or four doses per day.
