Are Generic Omnaris and Ciclesonide the Same Thing?

Is Ciclesonide the Same as Generic Omnaris?

No -- ciclesonide is the active ingredient in Omnaris (as well as in several other medications), but is not a generic version of it. What can be confusing is that, oftentimes, the active ingredient of any drug is referred to as the "generic name." The generic name is different from a generic version of a medicine. In order for there to be a generic version, the original medicine must have gone off-patent and another company besides the original manufacturer must make the product.
