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.


Mucodyne (carbocisteine) is a medication that breaks up mucus in your airways. It works by reducing the stickiness of the mucus, which makes it easier to cough up. You can buy Mucodyne as a 375mg capsule and as an oral syrup. You should store your Mucodyne below 25? and keep it out of reach of children. 


  • You can take Mucodyne with a meal or on an empty stomach.

    • Take your missed dose as soon as you remember, unless your next dose is scheduled in the next two hours.
    • You can skip the dose you forgot and continue with your next scheduled dose.
  • Do not take two doses at the same time.
  • Mucodyne is safe for adults and children. See below for the usual dosages:
    • For adults - Take two 375mg capsules three times per day. Your doctor might change your dose to one 375mg capsule taken four times per day when your symptoms improve.
