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

TOUJEO (insulin glargine) is a long-acting insulin prescribed to improve glycemic control in people with diabetes mellitus. TOUJEO is indicated for use in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus.


TOUJEO insulin is supplied in a higher concentration than many other types of long-acting insulin. The strength is 300 units per milliliter. For people who need large amounts of insulin, TOUJEO may be more convenient because the volume of medication injected is smaller.

Directions

The prescribing doctor will determine the dosage of TOUJEO. 

Inject TOUJEO under the skin once daily at the same time each day. Do not change the time of injection because TOUJEO lasts approximately 24 hours in most people.

TOUJEO cannot be mixed with other insulin products in the same syringe.

TOUJEO only comes as a pen, called TOUJEO SOLOSTAR, and is not available as a vial.

TOUJEO should be stored in the refrigerator before opening. Once a pen is used for the first time, it should be removed and kept at room temperature for up to 28 days.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in TOUJEO (insulin glargine) is insulin glargine. TOUJEO SOLOSTAR pens hold 450 units or 1.5 milliliters.
