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.


Mirvaso gel is a medication used to treat the skin condition rosacea.

People with rosacea have patches of dry, rough, red skin caused by blood vessel problems. Sun damage may contribute by weakening and widening the blood vessels of the face. Other symptoms include pus-filled bumps, stinging and burning of the skin, bumps on the eyes, and enlarged pores. 

Rosacea is sometimes confused for acne, but they are not the same thing.

The active ingredient, brimonidine, works by constricting the blood vessels of the face. Constricting the blood vessels reduces redness and other symptoms of rosacea.
