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

Your doctor may prescribe Sancuso Transdermal Patch to treat nausea and vomiting, primarily experienced during chemotherapy.

Sancuso uses a patch that attaches to the skin and dispenses granisetron, an antiemetic medication renowned for its efficacy in mitigating the debilitating symptoms of nausea and vomiting.

Sancuso is indicated for adult patients undergoing chemotherapy, which causes nausea and vomiting. Sancuso is a convenient and inconspicuous means of managing these symptoms, and a single patch may provide relief for up to 5-7 days.

The active component in Sancuso, granisetron, blocks the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter accountable for initiating nausea and vomiting.

Directions

Typically, a single Sancuso patch is applied to the upper arm 24-48 hours before starting chemotherapy.

Sancuso patches should be removed 24 hours after completing chemotherapy.

The patch can be worn for a maximum of seven consecutive days.

The active ingredient in Sancuso is granisetron.
