Basic Information on Nevanac
Nevanac 0.10% is an ophthalmic solution which is available as prescription drug. The drug is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (NSAID). It is used in the treatment of inflammation and pain which is associated with the cataract surgery. It is also indicated in the management of chronic pain in the eye.
While administering the brand or generic Nevanac the tip of the container used to dispense the drug should not touch the eye or its surroundings, in order to avoid any ocular infection. The drug acts by penetrating into the cornea and gets converted to Amfenac by the ocular tissue hydrolases. Amfenac is a NSAID and it inhibits the effects of prostaglandin H synthase which is responsible for the synthesis of prostaglandin.
Precautions / Side Effects for Nevanac
The common side effects with Nevanac are decreased visual acuity, increased intra-ocular pressure (IOP), feeling or sensation of some foreign body in the eye and sticky sensation. These are the side effects that you may experience due to the administration of the drug, post the cataract surgery. Other rare side effects of Nepafenac include headache, sinusitis, hypertension, nausea, and vomiting. Ocular side effects of the drug that are rare include corneal edema, conjunctival edema, eye-lids’ margin crusting, dryness in the eyes, ocular discomfort or pain, ocular hyperemia, photophobia, ocular pruritus, and tearing.
The use of topical NSAIDs like Nepafenac is known to delay or slow down the healing process. It may also lead to keratitis. In some patients if the drug is used continuously then it may also lead to thinning of the cornea, epithelial breakdown, perforation of the cornea or ulceration in the cornea. Therefore, if you see any signs of the corneal breakdown then discontinue the brand or generic Nevanac and consult your ophthalmologist for further use of topically administered NSAIDs.
The sterile ophthalmic solution of Nevanac is applied topically to affected eye (or both eyes) in the form of drops. The recommended dose is only one drop of the drug to be applied 3 times a day. The dosage begins before the cataract surgery. The drops are administered one day prior to the surgery, 3 times a day. It is then continued on the 2nd day, the day the cataract surgery is scheduled. Thereafter, the drops are administered for 2 weeks in the post-operative period.
The Nevanac drug may be administered along with any other ophthalmic solution or medication which includes carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, mydriatics, cycloplegics, alpha agonists, and beta blockers.

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.
