Medicines will often have more than one name: a generic name (the active or key ingredient of the medicine), and a brand name (the trade name the manufacturer gives to the medicine).

Many of our medicines are what’s called a ‘generic’, and this might be the first time you’ve come across a generic Teva medicine. You can be sure generic medicines contain the same active, or key, ingredient(s) as the original medicine brand.

It’s a little bit like buying the premium brand baked beans at the supermarket versus buying the lower cost alternative home brand of baked beans from the supermarket themselves. The key ingredient for both is still beans.

Sometimes the generic version of a medicine may have a different colour, size or shape from its branded equivalent. The active ingredient is the same. These differences do not affect how the medicine works.
