Marca comercial vs. Genérica

Sep 14, 2016

Apreciado Nelson:

El proveedor nacional de medicamentos usualmente me ofrecía truvada (Gilead) para el tratamiento en el que he estado durante tres años. Sin embargo, para esta oportunidad cambiaron la medicina y si bien el componente químico sigue siendo el mismo (emtricibatine tenofovir disoproxil fumarato) el laboratorio fabricante es MACLEODS PHARMACEUTICAL LIMITED, India.

Quisiera preguntarle si debería estar preocupado por este cambio en la medicina debido al tiempo en el que he estado en tratamiento con el medicamento original (de Gilead) y si usted tiene conocimiento acerca de ese laboratorio en India.

Mil gracias,

Felipe 31 Colombia.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Felipe

La FDA approvo el uso de medicinas de esa compania, asi que debe ser los mismos ingredientes y contenido. http://www.fda.gov/InternationalPrograms/PEPFAR/ucm119231.htm
