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.


Omnitrope (somatropin) is an injection prescribed to treat growth failure associated with conditions such as growth hormone deficiency (GHD), Prader-Willi syndrome, Small for Gestational Age, Turner syndrome, and Idiopathic Short Stature in children. Additionally, it is utilized in the treatment of adults diagnosed with adult onset or childhood onset GHD.

Omnitrope comes in the following formulations and strengths:

  • 5 mg/1.5 mL and 10 mg/1.5 mL prefilled sterile solution contained in a glass cartridge ready to be used with the Omnitrope pen

The right Omnitrope dosage for you or your child will be determined by your doctor. Your doctor will provide you with training on the proper preparation, administration, and disposal of the injection.

The thigh, buttocks, or abdomen are injectable sites for Omnitrope. If you have any questions or concerns about the medication, you may speak with your doctor or pharmacist. For further information regarding use, refer to the medication guide that accompanies your prescription.

Never share needles, syringes, or pens with others.
