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

If you have a condition of the eye where the pressure of the eye fluid is too high, your doctor may prescribe Lumigan RC eye drops.

Lumigan RC is indicated to treat open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension. Symptoms of these conditions include headache, blurred vision, and eye pain. If left untreated, they can cause nerve damage and permanent vision loss.

Lumigan RC works by increasing the outflow of fluid in the eye, lowering the pressure.
