Generic Gengraf

As a "branded generic," Gengraf is actually a generic version of another drug, but was given a brand name. It contains a modified form of the active ingredient (cyclosporine), which means that Gengraf and the original drug are not interchangeable. Other generic versions, however, can be used as a replacement product.

Can I Buy Generic Gengraf?

Gengraf® (cyclosporine) is a prescription medication approved to prevent transplant rejection after a heart, kidney, or liver transplant. It is also approved to treat severe forms of psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis.
 
Gengraf is made by Abbott Laboratories. It is a "branded generic," which means it has a brand name, but is really a generic version of another brand-name product. Gengraf is a generic version of Neoral®. Other generic versions of Neoral are available that are interchangeable with Gengraf.
 
It is important to keep in mind that not all cyclosporine medicines are interchangeable with Gengraf and Neoral. This is because Gengraf and Neoral contain a modified form of cyclosporine. This modified form has been slightly altered from original cyclosporine (Sandimmune®) to be more easily absorbed into the body. Because they are absorbed differently, the original and modified forms cannot be substituted for one another.
