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.

Description

RELPAX (Eletriptan) is a medication prescribed to treat acute migraine headaches in adults. RELPAX is approved for use in adults and may be used in patients whose migraines occur with or without aura.

Migraine headaches occur because blood vessels in the brain vasoconstrict (tighten) and also release chemical signals that increase the sensation of pain. RELPAX works by activating serotonin receptors on the surface of blood vessel cells in the brain, which decreases vasoconstriction and the release of these chemical signals.

Directions

Do not take RELPAX differently than how it is prescribed. Taking RELPAX incorrectly may cause medication overuse headaches that cannot be treated with triptan medications like RELPAX.

RELPAX is made as either 20 mg or 40 mg tablets. The standard set of directions is to take a 20 mg to 40 mg RELPAX dosage immediately at the onset of an aura or a migraine headache. If the migraine headache persists, an additional dose may be taken two hours later as needed.

The maximum RELPAX dosage is 80 mg in a 24-hour period.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in RELPAX is eletriptan hydrobromide; which is also the name of RELPAX generic. 

Cautions

RELPAX should not be taken regularly for prophylaxis of migraine headaches, and should only be taken at the onset of a migraine headache for abortive treatment. Do not take RELPAX for cluster headaches or other non-migraine headaches.

Side Effects

The most common adverse effects of RELPAX may include:


  • Cerebrovascular events
  • Heart arrhythmias
  • Hypertension
  • Medication overuse headache (rebound headache)
  • Prinzmetal's angina
  • Tightness in the chest, throat, neck, or jaw
  • Vasospasm reactions

The above side effects may become worsened in people who have underlying health conditions. Speak with your doctor or pharmacist about any underlying health conditions you have.

Buy RELPAX and RELPAX generic from an online retailer like Canada Drugs Direct.
