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.


Persantine is a medication prescribed to prevent blood clots in those at risk of developing thromboembolic disorders. It is given after surgeries or procedures that increase the clot risk. It belongs to a class of drugs known as platelet inhibitors.

The active ingredient in Persantine is dipyridamole, which inhibits platelet aggregation and reduces the risk of clot formation. It also helps to widen the blood vessels, improving blood flow and oxygen delivery to the heart.
