Pirfenex is a generic brand name by Cipla Limited for the drug Pirfenidone.
Pirfenidone is used to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
IPF is a disease of the lungs where scar tissue is formed deep within by unknown causes. The scar tissue thickens and becomes stiff or thick over time, which can make it harder for your lungs to work.
IPF is a progressive disease that worsens over time. Pirfenidone is not a cure for IPF but may slow the progress of this disease.
Generic drugs are medications created to be the same as an already marketed brand-name drug in dosage form, safety, strength, quality, and intended use. As such, you can take a generic medicine as an equal substitute for its brand-name counterpart. Generic medicines also tend to be cheaper than their branded counterparts, while providing the same effects and benefits.
