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.
Antirobe is a type of medication used for the treatment of bacterial infections in dogs and cats. It is an antibacterial drug that works by blocking the production of essential proteins required for bacteria to grow and multiply.
Antirobe should be administered orally to your pet as directed by your veterinarian. It is important to follow the recommended dosage and frequency of administration to ensure maximum efficacy of the drug. If you miss a dose, administer it as soon as you remember, but if it is close to the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with the regular schedule.
The active ingredient in Antirobe is clindamycin hydrochloride. The medication also contains inactive ingredients such as magnesium stearate, pregelatinized starch, and silicon dioxide.
Antirobe should not be used in pets with a history of hypersensitivity to clindamycin or lincomycin. Use with caution in pets with liver or kidney disease, as the drug is metabolized by the liver and excreted by the kidneys. Inform your veterinarian of any other medications your pet is taking, as Antirobe may interact with other drugs.
The most common side effects of Antirobe include gastrointestinal upset, such as vomiting and diarrhea. If your pet experiences severe or persistent side effects, contact your veterinarian immediately. Other less common side effects include liver and kidney problems, decreased appetite, and changes in behavior.
