What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Vidaza Drug Information
Vidaza is used to treat a group of blood/bone marrow disorders (myelodysplastic syndromes-MDS) in which the bone marrow does not produce enough healthy blood cells. People with MDS usually have problems such as infections, anemia, and easy bleeding/bruising. Azacitidine is a chemotherapy drug. It is believed to work by helping your bone marrow grow normal blood cells so you will need fewer blood transfusions. Azacitidine also kills abnormal blood cells that have grown too fast and do not work properly.
How to Use Vidaza
Vidaza is given by injection under the skin or into a vein by a health care professional. If you are receiving the injection under the skin, your health care professional will change the injection site each time to lessen injury under the skin. Vidaza is injected as directed by your doctor, usually once a day for 7 days in a row. A 7-day course of Vidaza is called a cycle. This cycle is repeated every 4 weeks depending on your response and blood tests. The Dosage of Vidaza is based on your medical condition, body size, lab tests, and response to treatment. Keep all medical/lab appointments.

Vidaza may contain inactive ingredients (such as mannitol), which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.

Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. You should not become pregnant while using azacitidine.
