Also Known as Grisovin
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.
Grifulvin V is an antifungal medication available by prescription and used to treat skin fungal infections along with fungal infections of the hair or nails. It is most commonly prescribed when the person is not able to clear the infection using an OTC fungal medication and needs something that has a stronger formulation for getting rid of a fungal infection. Griseofulvin works by preventing the fungus from growing and multiplying, and this allows the body’s immune system to have the means of overcoming it.
