Basic Information On Vigamox
Vigamox is an antibiotic used for the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis. It belongs to a class of drugs called fluoroquinolones. It works by preventing the action of a bacterial enzyme called DNA gyrase, which results in malfunction of certain proteins thereby causing bacterial cell death. The Vigamox drug is meant only for treating ophthalmic bacterial infections.
Side Effects/Precautions For Vigamox
Vigamox also called as Moxifloxacin, causes side effects like stinging, itching and redness of the eye. Some people experience dryness. These side effects are not severe and are prominent only during the first week, when the body is adjusting to the drug. You may also experience momentary blurring. Talk to your doctor about any health condition you may have, that can worsen the side effects, like dry eyes, before you start on brand or generic Vigamox medication. Eye infections can happen if you contaminate the dropper. Do not touch the dropper as it is sterile.
You may be allergic to Moxiflaxacin. Allergic reactions produce symptoms like redness, itching that does not seem to alleviate. If you use contact lenses, you should avoid putting them on during infection, as contact lenses can worsen conjunctivitis. The use of other medication for the eyes, for glaucoma or for other purposes, may worsen the side effects. Hence talk to your doctor about any other medication that you may be taken. It is not known if brand or generic Vigamox can cause harm to unborn babies. If you are pregnant, talk to your doctor about the pregnancy risk of this medication.
For adults the recommended dosage of Vigamox is one drop in the affected eye, three times a day, for 7 days. After the medicine has been administered, slightly closing the eyelid can help reduce adverse systemic effects. If the dose is missed, it should not be compensated for later. The next dose should be administered on time. If more than one ophthalmic topical medication is being used, then each of these should be administered at least 5 minutes apart. Dosage should not exceed one drop. No dose adjustments are required for the renal or hepatic impaired. The drug should not be used for longer than prescribed, as the body can build resistance to it and reduce the effectiveness of future treatment.

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.
