FR: I take Floradix to prevent anaemia

If the definite article is used for generic terms (e.g. J'aime la glace, le chocolat et les amandes) then if I was talking about my health & the medication I take, would these two things be considered generic?

I take Floradix to prevent anaemia.
Je prends le Floradix pour éviter l'anémie.

Merci d'avance.

    The medication isn't generic since you're talking about a specific medicine. You should therefore use the partitive article.

    Je prends du Floradix pour éviter l'anémie.
