What is a Generic Drug?

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.


Gabitril is an antiepileptic drug (AED) used to treat focal seizures. Gabitril is usually prescribed by a physician with specialized experience in treating seizures, called a neurologist.

Focal seizures are also called simple partial seizures and complex partial seizures. The seizure starts in one brain region and then spreads to others.

Symptoms of focal seizures are diffuse and vary from person to person. Symptoms may include backouts, flushed face, sweating, rapid heart rate, unusual eye or head movements, and muscle contractions.

Gabitril works by dampening the signals sent by neurons of the brain. It amplifies the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
