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

NEVANAC eye drops are indicated to treat inflammation and pain associated with cataract surgery. NEVANAC and or similar drugs like ketorolac eye drops may be used for the same purpose.

NEVANAC eye drops are a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). NSAIDs work by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins, which are signal molecules involved in pain and inflammation. Nepafenac is a pro-drug, and when it enters the cornea, enzymes in cells of the eyes convert it to the active drug amfenac.

Directions

Instill NEVANAC eye drops to the affected eye three times daily. Begin 1 day prior to cataract surgery and continue for 14 days after the surgery. Shake the bottle prior to each dose.

Ingredients

The active in NEVANAC 0.1 is nepafenac. Inactive ingredients include benzalkonium chloride (preservative, mannitol, carbomer homopolymer type B, sodium chloride, tyloxapol, EDTA, sodium hydroxide (for pH balance), hydrochloric acid (for pH balance), and water.

Cautions

Avoid touching to the tip of the eyedropper to the surface of the eye, structures around the eyes, or other non-sterile surfaces, as this may cause contamination by infectious agents that can cause viral and bacterial infections. Serious damage to the eye can result.

Contact lenses should be removed before applying NEVANAC eye drops and you should wait 10 minutes after application to return them to the eye. The preservative agent benzalkonium chloride may absorb into contact lenses and cause redness and irritation if applied while lenses are in place.

The product should be shaken well before each use.

Separate the application of NEVANAC eye drops from other eye medication by at least 5 minutes.

Side Effects

NEVANAC eye drops have side effects that are common to all NSAIDs, including:

  • Increased bleeding time
  • Delayed healing

Since only a small portion of NEVANAC eye drops are absorbed into the systemic circulation, these side effects are rare and usually localized to the site of application.

Nepafenac ophthalmic suspension has been known to cause corneal effects that may be threatening to sight. You should be monitored by a physician throughout treatment. Alert the physician immediately if you are experiencing any of the following: 

  • Corneal epithelial breakdown
  • Corneal erosion
  • Corneal thinning
  • Corneal ulceration
  • Epithelial breakdown
  • Keratitis (corneal inflammation)
