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.

Description

Roszet is a two-drug combination: rosuvastatin, an HMG CoA-reductase inhibitor (statin) and ezetimibe, a dietary cholesterol absorption inhibitor.

Roszet (rosuvastatin and ezetimibe) is used:

  • With diet to reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) in adults with primary non-familial hyperlipidemia
  • alone or with other medications that lower LDL-C in adults with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH)

Directions

Roszet is supplied as an oral tablet in the following strengths:

  • 5 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe
  • 10 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe
  • 20 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe
  • 40 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe

Avoid crushing, chewing, or dissolving the tablets. They should be swallowed whole. 

If you are taking a bile acid sequestrant, Roszet should be taken 2 hours before or 4 hours after taking the bile acid sequestrant. 

If you are taking an antacid that contains aluminum and magnesium hydroxide, Roszet should be taken at least 2 hours before taking the antacid.

Your dose will depend on the reason for taking Roszet, LDL-C, and your risks for cardiovascular events. 

Dosage range: 5 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe to 40 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe by mouth once a day. 

Your doctor may adjust your dose depending on LDL-C levels.

The recommended starting dose in Asian patients is 5 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe by mouth once a day.

The recommended starting dose in patients with severe kidney problems who are not on hemodialysis is 5 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe by mouth once a day. The dose should not be more than 10 mg rosuvastatin/10 mg ezetimibe per day.
