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

VYZULTA eye drops are a medication used to treat increased intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma. Increased fluid pressure inside the eye occurs when more fluid is produced than is drained. 

Ocular hypertension is a primary risk factor for glaucoma. Left untreated, glaucoma can lead to visual impairment and permanent optic nerve damage.

VYZULTA eye drops work by a dual mechanism. It is metabolized into two active moieties at the site of action: latanoprost and butanediol mononitrate. Latanoprost works by increasing the expression of proteins that degrade collagen, thereby reducing outflow resistance and producing subsequent pressure reduction. Butanediol mononitrate further metabolizes to nitric oxide, which causes changes in contractility and reduced aqueous humor volume.

Directions

Instill one drop into the conjunctival sac of the affected eyes (s) once daily in the evening. VYZULTA eye drops should not be administered more than once daily as the subsequent effects may diminish.

Separate the administration from other eye drops by at least 5 minutes. Wait 15 minutes after administration of drops to insert contact lenses.

Do not touch the tip of the eyedropper to the surface of the eye or other nonsterile surfaces, as this may contaminate the bottle with bacterial growth.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in VYZULTA eye drops is latanoprostene bunod.

Inactive ingredients include: benzalkonium chloride (preservative), citric acid, EDTA, glycerin, polysorbate 80, sodium citrate, and water.

Cautions

VYZULTA eye drops can cause permanent pigmentation changes to the iris, and reversible pigmentation changes to the periorbital tissue and eyelashes. Pigmentation changes include a darkening of the affected tissue. Patients prescribed VYZULTA eye drops should be informed of this possibility by their prescribing physician. 

VYZULTA eye drops can increase the length and thickness of eyelashes. These changes are cosmetic and usually reversible upon discontinuation.

Side Effects

The most common adverse effects of VYZULTA eye drops include:

  • Conjunctival hyperemia
  • Eye irritation
  • Eye pain
  • Eyelash changes
  • Instillation site pain
  • Macular edema
  • Pigmentation changes

If you experience any of the above side effects while taking VYZULTA eye drops, let your doctor know. Most side effects will resolve after discontinuing the medication.
