Therapeutic Equivalency of Ophthalmic Generics
Ophthalmic generic products must demonstrate they contain the same active ingredient as the innovator drug, although the inactive ingredients and excipients may and do vary. The generic product must be identical in strength, dosage form, and route of administration and must demonstrate formulary bioequivalence. Unlike systemic generic products, ophthalmic generic products are not required to demonstrate therapeutic equivalency compared to the branded product. An ophthalmic generic product must have the same use indications and must meet the same batch requirements for identity, strength, purity, and quality and is manufactured under the same standard required for branded products.
As always, ask your doctor if he/she has seen positive results using a generic drug verses the brand name.
