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 healthcare provider may prescribe Nizoral to combat various fungal infections. Its active ingredient, ketoconazole, effectively addresses fungal overgrowth within the body. These infections can manifest on the skin, hair, and even internal organs, making Nizoral a crucial tool for managing such conditions.

Nizoral is indicated for treating cutaneous candidiasis, tinea cruris, tinea pedis, and tinea versicolor.

The mechanism of action behind Nizoral involves disrupting the growth and spread of fungi, ultimately leading to their eradication. It is a valuable antifungal agent for various dermatological and systemic fungal infections.


Typically, Nizoral cream should be applied once daily to the affected area. The duration of treatment generally spans from 2 to 6 weeks, contingent on the type and severity of the infection.


The active ingredient in Nizoral is ketoconazole.


There are no known drug interactions with Nizoral cream.


Tell your doctor If you do not see improvement after the 2-6 weeks of using Nizoral.

Before initiating treatment with Nizoral, inform your doctor about any underlying chronic conditions, including kidney or liver problems.

Topical products like Nizoral may lead to irritation at the application site. If this reaction persists, consult your doctor, who may recommend discontinuing the treatment.

Ensure Nizoral does not come into contact with your eyes or mucous membranes.
