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.
Ofev is a prescription IPF treatment medication used for lung diseases, and to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and interstitial lung disease specifically. The active ingredient in the medication - Nintedanib - works to block the activity of certain cells so that scarring of the lung tissue is slowed and there is less stiffening of the lungs and the breathing difficulties that come with these diseases. It is the first FDA-approved treatment for adults with chronic ILD and physicians are quick to prescribe it for patients who have worsening IPF or ILD and decreased lung function because of it.
