Generic Pramlintide

Is Pramlintide a Generic Symlin?

No. Pramlintide acetate is the active ingredient in Symlin, but it is not a generic version of Symlin. What can be confusing is that, often, the active ingredient of a brand-name drug is referred to as the "generic name" of the medication. This "generic name" is different from a generic version of a medicine. In order for there to be a generic version of a medicine, the original medicine must have gone off patent and another company (besides the original manufacturer) would make the product.
