Basic Information On Latisse
Latisse is prescription medication which has been proven to make eyelashes thicker, darker and more voluminous. It is suited for people who have naturally inadequate eyelashes or those whose eye lashes are thinning. Latisse drug is a cosmetic formulation. Latisse, induces a darkening and lengthening effect in the eyelashes which lasts for a few weeks. Restoring lash lushness with the use of this drug is a medical treatment which is termed hypotrichosis. It is administered once via an applicator on a daily basis. Non cosmetic uses of it include regulation of ocular hypertension, burning of adipose tissue and stunting the progression of glaucoma.
Precautions / Side Effects for Latisse
Latisse may cause discomfort and blurred vision in some users. The medication is applied at the base of your lashes. Hence, if you have sensitive eyes, you may face irritation or skin reaction. Brand or generic Latisse can permanently darken and thicken the lashes in some cases. The color of your iris may shift from brown to darker tones. Since, Latisse’s main ingredient bimatoprost, essentially increases hair growth; you must use it meticulously. Inefficient use may cause hair growth on your facial area.
The medication causes a brief tingling sensation while being applied, which may not be bearable to some users. There is a risk of infection if you reuse, one-time use applicators, or someone else uses your applicator. In rare cases, your lashes can over grow and then curl inwards, in the process damaging the cornea of the eye. Over dosage of bimatoprost may decrease its potency. Lastly, brand or generic Latisse is a prescription drug, whose dosage and use has to be directed by a qualified doctor.
Latisse is indicated to treat a medical condition called hypotrichosis by extending length, growth and lushness. It is available on doctor’s prescription in 3ml and 5ml solution packages of 0.03% dosage. The drug is marketed in an opaque white colored dispenser bottle, which is made out of low density polythene. The tip of the bottle has a polystyrene cap.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
