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

Chemical Name: Bimatoprost (By-Matoh-prohst)

LUMIGAN is used for the treatment of high eye pressure, also called intraocular pressure (IOP), in people with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Glaucoma is caused by high pressure in your eye and can lead to pain from pressure in your eye and then can eventually harm your vision. This medicine can help you keep your sight by reducing the pressure in your eye and stopping eye pain. LUMIGAN can also be used to improve fullness, length, and color of the eyelashes in people with a condition called hypotrichosis, a lack of eyelash growth.

Directions

  • Do not use LUMIGAN while you are wearing contact lenses. This medication may contain a preservative that can be absorbed by soft contact lenses. Wait at least 15 minutes after using the drops before putting your contact lenses in.
  • Use LUMIGAN exactly as prescribed. Do not use the medication in larger amounts, or use it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the instructions on your prescription label.
  • Wash your hands before use
  • Do not allow the LUMIGAN dropper to touch any surface, including the eyes or hands. If the dropper becomes contaminated it could cause an infection in your eye, which can lead to vision loss or serious damage to the eye

Cautions

  • Do not use LUMIGAN if you are allergic to bimatoprost or any other chemicals contained in this medication
  • Speak to your doctor if you have swelling or infection of your eye
  • Do not take LUMIGAN if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding
LUMIGAN may cause a gradual change in the color of your eyes or eyelids and lashes. These color changes, usually an increase in brown pigment, occur slowly and you may not notice them for months or years. Color changes may be permanent even after your treatment ends, and may occur only in the eye being treated. This could result in a cosmetic difference in eye or eyelash color from one eye to the other.

Side Effects

Every medication has side effects; however it is rare that they may occur. Drug manufacturers are required to list all known side effects of their products. Patients can usually find the complete list of side effects with their medication.

  • Some common side effects of LUMIGAN are:
  • itching eye
  • redness of the white part of the eyes or inside the eyelids
  • eye discharge or excess tearing
  • eyestrain
  • increased sensitivity of eyes to sunlight

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your physician for medical advice about additional side effects.
