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.
Mytesi is a medicine to treat diarrhea in adults living with HIV on ART who have diarrhea not caused by an infection. This kind of diarrhea is called noninfectious diarrhea. It is not caused by an infection from bacteria, a virus, or a parasite. In people living with HIV/AIDS, this kind of diarrhea may be a side effect of ART. It can also be caused by the effects of HIV on the lining of the intestines. No matter its cause, the result is the same—diarrhea that can disrupt your life.
