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 blood sugar can drop if you take Stelagtro with other medications that can lower blood sugar, such as insulin. Use caution and monitor for signs and symptoms of low blood sugar, including headache, weakness, shakiness, hunger, confusion, irritability, fast heartbeat, and sweating. Be sure to treat your low blood sugar as instructed by your doctor.
  • Seek immediate medical attention if you experience fever, fatigue, weakness, and pain or tenderness, redness, or swelling of your anus and genitals. These could be signs of a serious, potentially life-threatening bacterial infection that can cause tissue damage beneath the skin around your anus and genitals.
  • Steglatro can cause vaginal yeast infections. Talk to your doctor if you have vaginal odor, itching, or white to yellowish discharge.
  • This medication can cause penile yeast infections. Talk to your doctor if you have redness, itching, swelling, or pain around the penis or odorous discharge from the penis.
