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.


Ngenla is a prescription drug and human growth hormone (HGH) analog. It is indicated to treat pediatric patients three years and older with growth failure because of low secretion of endogenous growth hormone.

Ngenla works by mimicking the natural HGH hormone. It binds to the growth hormone (GH) receptor and starts a signal cascade that increases growth and metabolism.


Ngenla is available in prefilled pens with 24 mg or 60 mg. The dosage can be adjusted in increments based on the individual dosing requirements.

Ngenla should be administered once weekly; the starting dosage is 0.66 mg/kg. Your doctor will adjust the dosage based on the growth response.

Rotate injection sites to prevent abnormal growth of fat tissue.


The active ingredient in Ngenla is somatrogon.
