RxOrange provides full, Internet free, access to the FDA Orange Book with a thoughtful user interface and a unique set of features that you will find nowhere else, not even on the FDA web site.
Questions that RxOrange can quickly answer.
When does that drug go generic?
One question that frequently gets asked by both patients and health care practitioners is ‘When will a generic come out for this drug’? RxOrange can predict an expiration date based on patent and exclusivity information from the Orange Book.* It also shows brand name products that have recently gone generic, so you can stay up to date as new generics become available.
*Please note that unexpired patents, patent extension, and litigation can delay or expedite the actual date of generic competition. RxOrange provides a reasonable estimate based on available data, or an actual date if it is known.
What generic products are therapeutically equivalent to the brand name drug?
RxOrange can help you find suitable generic substitutes fast. Drug products are organized into brand and generic sections and alphabetized by manufacturer. The therapeutic equivalence (TE) code for each drug product is highlighted with a color (green, yellow, or red) to make interpreting the codes easy.**
What products have recently been approved by the FDA?
Dozens of new drug products are released each month by manufacturers. RxOrange will help you keep up to date on both brand and generic products as they become available.

** The therapeutic equivalence code, or TE code, provided by the FDA indicates whether a generic product can be substituted for its brand name counterpart. Products highlighted green are equivalent substitutes, yellow highlighting indicates no information is available and caution should be taken, and red highlighting indicates the product is NOT equivalent to the brand name product. A detailed explanation of each code is available in the detail view for each drug.
Who made RxOrange?

How often will this app be updated?
