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.


Your doctor may prescribe Nimotop if you have experienced a bleed in the brain (subarachnoid hemorrhage). A brain bleed is an emergency, and symptoms can include loss of consciousness, nausea, vomiting, double vision, severe headache, sensitivity to light, and confusion. If you are experiencing these symptoms, call emergency services.

Nimotop is a calcium channel blocker that works by targeting cerebral blood vessels. By attaching to calcium channels in the cerebral vessels, Nimotop prevents the flow of calcium into muscle cells, which relaxes the blood vessels. Relaxation of the blood vessels then reduces the risk of brain damage.


The standard dosage is 60 mg capsule every four hours over 21 days. If you have a history of liver disease, your doctor will likely adjust the dosage to 30 mg every four hours.

Nimotop should be taken on an empty stomach, one hour before or two hours after meals.

The capsules cannot be crushed, chewed, or opened. Commencement of Nimotop within 96 hours of a subarachnoid hemorrhage is crucial for optimal therapeutic outcomes.


The active ingredient in Nimotop is nimodipine.
