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.


Surgam (Tiaprofenic acid) is an anti-inflammatory medication used to relieve pain and inflammation caused by conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It helps reduce inflammation and pain by blocking the production of certain substances called prostaglandins.

Tell your healthcare provider about your medical history and any known allergies. Do not take Surgam if you have ever had an allergic reaction to Tiaprofenic acid or to any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).


  • Before you start taking Surgam, inform your doctor:
    • About any medications you are currently taking, including aspirin, other NSAIDs, blood thinners, or high blood pressure medications.
    • If you have a history of peptic ulcers, heart problems, liver disease, kidney disease, or asthma. 
    • If you are about to undergo any type of surgery. 
    • If you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Surgam may be harmful to an unborn baby or breastfeeding child. 
  • Surgam may cause serious gastrointestinal problems, such as stomach or intestinal bleeding and ulcers, which can be fatal. These conditions can occur at any time while you are taking Surgam, with symptoms such as stomach pain, blood in stools, and vomiting blood.
  • Surgam may lead to heart attack or stroke, particularly when used long-term or in high doses. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness in one part or side of your body, or slurred speech. 
  • Surgam may cause liver damage. Contact your healthcare provider right away if you notice signs of liver problems such as upper stomach pain, itching, tiredness, flu-like symptoms, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, or jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes). 
  • Surgam may cause a severe allergic reaction, especially in people allergic to aspirin or other NSAIDs. Symptoms can include difficulty breathing, swelling of your face or throat, hives, or skin rash. 
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or artificial UV light when taking Surgam as it may make your skin more sensitive. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen.

Common side effects of Surgam may include stomach pain, indigestion, heartburn, drowsiness, and diarrhea. If these side effects persist or worsen, seek medical attention immediately.
