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.

Routes of administration



Use LOPROX exactly as directed by your healthcare provider.

The normal dose is to apply to the affected area twice daily in the morning and evening. After application, wash the palms of your hands. Do not get LOPROX into the eyes, mouth, or genitals.


The active ingredient in LOPROX is ciclopirox. 

The inactive ingredients will vary depending on whether the product is a cream or a lotion and may vary by manufacturer.


There are no known drug-drug interactions between LOPROX and other medications. LOPROX is not absorbed into the bloodstream, so drug interactions are unlikely.

If using multiple topical medications, wait 30 minutes between applying each medication.


Some formulations contain benzyl alcohol, which can cause the rare condition of "gasping syndrome" in neonates. 

If redness or irritation develops, stop taking LOPROX and call your doctor.
