Relpax (Eletriptan)and/or alternatives
Basic Information On Relpax
Relpax is used to treat acute migraine that may be accompanied with or without aura in adults. It works by relaxing blood vessels around the brain and it also prevents substances in the body from causing headaches triggered by sound, sensitivity to light and other triggers of migraine. Doctors would prescribe Relpax drug only for reducing the pain caused by migraine but not for preventing or reducing the number of headaches. The drug should not be used for headaches that are not migraine.
Side Effects/Precautions For Relpax
Side effects of Relpax or Eletriptan include headaches but not like a migraine. You can also feel nauseated and vomit. Since this medicine should be used only for reducing a headache that has already set in, it may take a while till the pain alleviates. Till then you must avoid anything that can worsen the pain, mostly light and sound. Some individuals also feel warm under the skin when they take this medicine. These side effects reduce in intensity as you get used to it. Most individuals build tolerance to prescribed doses of brand or generic Relpax but for some reason if side effects like dry mouth, feeling of warmth and dizziness do not go away after a week, you must seek your doctor’s advice.
Eletriptan is not prescribed for individuals with cardio vascular problems or even risk of such disease. So if you have a history of coronary problems, then you must bring it to your doctor’s attention. Several medications are contraindicated with the use of brand or generic Relpax. Any medication that you may be taking for blood disorders, anti depressants or other migraine medications has the potential to compound side effects. Symptoms of such unwarranted action include chest pain, numbness, sudden onset of severe stomach pain and the skin turning pale. Any of these symptoms can indicate a medical emergency and immediate medical attention is required.
The dose of Relpax depends on the intensity of the headache. Most individuals benefit from a single dose of 20 mg but if required a repeat dose of 20 mg taken after 2 hours can help reduce the pain. For individuals where 20 mg was not sufficient, the dose can be increased to 40 mg. The repeat dose can lowered if required. If further increase in dose is required, then a dose of 80 mg can be given. However, the maximum daily dose of Relpax should not exceed 80 mg as it increases the intensity of side effects. For individuals with mild or moderate hepatic impairment, dose adjustments are not necessary but for patients with severe hepatic impairment, the medicine is not prescribed.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
