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.
Tiaprofenic acid is used to reduce pain, swelling, and joint stiffness caused by arthritis. Reducing symptoms of arthritis may improve your ability to move/exercise, work, and perform tasks normally. This medication is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by decreasing the production of certain substances (prostaglandins) in your body that may cause pain and swelling (inflammation).
Before taking tiaprofenic acid, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to aspirin or other NSAIDs (e.g., ibuprofen, naproxen, celecoxib); or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.
Upset stomach, nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, constipation, or diarrhea may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
