Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
DILANTIN (Phenytoin) is a medication used to treat different seizure disorders including focal (partial) seizures, generalized onset seizures, or status epilepticus, and to provide seizure prophylaxis following neurosurgery and post-traumatic injury.
Seizures occur when there is abnormal electrical activity in different parts of the brain. The type of abnormal activity and the location in the brain determine which type of seizure disorder. DILANTIN decreases seizure activity in brain cells by decreasing the movement of sodium ions across cell membranes, which slows or stops nerve impulses.
DILANTIN is dosed between two to four times daily. It is dosed in increments of 100 mg when using oral capsules and 50 mg when using chewable tablets. The daily dosage of DILANTIN is determined by monitoring the blood levels of the drug and is individualized for each person.
The generic name of DILANTIN is phenytoin, which is the active ingredient.
DILANTIN has many precautions that should be discussed with the prescriber before starting the medication. Discuss with your doctor if you have a history of any of the following:
