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

Kisqali (ribociclib) is a medication used to treat breast cancer. It works by disrupting the replication process of cancerous cells and decreasing the size of the tumor. Kisqali is often used in combination with other drugs as part of a cancer treatment program. You can buy Kisqali as a 200mg, 400mg, or 600mg tablet. Store your Kisqali tablets at room temperature and keep them out of reach of children.

  • Do not chew or crush your Kisqali tablets. Swallow them whole.
  • You should take Kisqali at the same time every day.

  • If you vomit after you take Kisqali, do not take another dose. Continue with your next dose as scheduled.
