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

Routes of administration

Intravenous

Directions

Venofer is typically administered as a slow intravenous injection or infusion. It's available as an injection solution with a concentration of 50 mg/2.5 mL, 100 mg/5 mL, or 200 mg/10 mL. It should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare provider. The Venofer dose and administration schedule will be tailored to your specific needs and condition.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in Venofer is iron sucrose, a form of the mineral iron specifically designed for intravenous use. Iron sucrose is a complex of polynuclear iron (III)-hydroxide in sucrose, which may contribute to better absorption and use of iron by the body.

Contraindications

Venofer should not be administered to patients with known hypersensitivity to the drug or its ingredients. Always discuss your medical history and any existing allergies with your healthcare provider before receiving Venofer.

  • Before you start using Venofer, it is vital to inform your doctor about:
    • Any medications you take, particularly iron supplements.
    • Any medical conditions you have, including kidney problems, liver problems, or allergies to any medicines or substances.
    • If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Venofer may cause harm to an unborn baby.
    • If you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. Venofer may pass into breast milk and cause harm to a breastfeeding child.
  • Venofer may cause allergic reactions. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience trouble breathing, a rash or hives, sores in your mouth, skin blisters or peeling, swelling of your face, eyes, lips, tongue, or throat.
  • Venofer may cause serious heart problems. Contact your doctor right away if you develop chest pain, abnormal heartbeats, or swelling in your legs, ankles, and feet.
  • Venofer may cause hypotension (low blood pressure). If you experience dizziness, fainting, or feeling lightheaded, contact your doctor immediately.
  • Venofer can cause gastrointestinal problems, such as nausea or vomiting. If these symptoms persist or worsen, seek medical advice promptly.
