General Information about Orudis
Orudis is generally prescribed for people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and/or osteoarthritis. Orudis is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID and is only capable of treating or relieving the pain experienced by the patient. You must not buy Orudis as a cure for rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, Orudis simply provides relief from the symptoms of these conditions. The generic name of Orudis is Ketoprofen. People who have a history of heart problems must never use Orudis since doing so can cause fatal problems like heart attacks and stomach ulcers.
Orudis may also be taken for other purposes not mentioned above. However, you must only use this medication if it has been prescribed for you by a doctor after a complete medical evaluation.
Side Effects of Orudis
Some of the minor side effects which are associated with the use of Orudis are as follows:
- Fatigue and drowsiness
- Dizziness and headaches
- Vomiting and nausea
- Stomach aches and pains
- Serious allergic reactions like rashes, breathing difficulties, chest tightness and pain, and swelling in various parts of the body
- Notable change in the amount of urine passed

Patients should contact their doctor immediately if they witness any severe side effects. Additionally, pregnant or breastfeeding women are advised not to take the drug. Those taking other prescription drugs and patients with liver or heart problems must talk to their doctor before they buy Orudis. Orudis also interacts adversely with alcohol, so those who drink heavily must not drink during Orudis treatment.
Dosage of Orudis
Orudis is a potent drug and must be used very carefully after a patient discusses the risks and benefits of the drug with the doctor. The doctor’s advice and recommendation must always be taken into consideration prior to using Orudis. The drug can be taken orally, but some users have complained of stomach aches when the drug is taken without food. To prevent this issue, Orudis can be taken along with food with a glass of water. Users should be very careful when dealing with missed doses. Two doses must never be administered at once to make up for one missed dose as doing so can cause major side effects. If you miss a dose and it is already time to take another dose, you may skip the last one and continue with your treatment.
There are several drugs that can interact with Orudis, such as aspirin, anticoagulants, lithium, and diuretics. This is not a complete list of drugs that react adversely with Orudis. To prevent any future complications, inform your doctor about all the prescription, herbal, and over the counter drugs or supplements you are taking at present.

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.
