General Information on Daraprim
Daraprim is an antiparasitic medication whose generic name is pyrimethamine. This drug stops the reproduction and spread of parasites in the body.
You can buy Daraprim online for the treatment and prevention of malaria after consulting your doctor. This medication may also be taken for the treatment of a condition known as toxoplasmosis.
You may also be prescribed Daraprim for other medical purpose, but you may not be able to take it if you have previously suffered from an allergy to pyrimethamine.
Side effects of Daraprim
In rare cases, Daraprim may trigger an allergic reaction, which would then require emergency medical assistance. The signs of an allergic reaction to Daraprim include breathing difficulties, a swollen face or throat, and the appearance of hives. Other serious side effects include skin rashes, pale skin, and sore throat, swelling up of the tongue, and unusual bruising, especially under the skin. These side effects are the initial signs of serious dangers caused by Daraprim.
Mild side effects may occur on taking Daraprim. These side effects are generally transient, but you must inform your doctor immediately if they do not subside even after a long time, or if they turn severe. In most cases, you may continue taking Daraprim after you inform your doctor about them. Some of these minor side effects are:
- Loss of appetite
- Mouth dryness
Dosage of Daraprim
You can buy Daraprim in the form of oral tablets. Each tablet has a strength equal to Daraprim 25mg. The recommended starting dose of Daraprim is 50-75mg per day, and it may be prescribed along with other medications. However, your own dosage and duration of treatment will be determined by your doctor after he/she evaluates your medical condition. There are some conditions that may require a specialized dosage of Daraprim, in which case the doctor will determine the same.
You must take each tablet with a glass of water. It is recommended to take Daraprim along with food since this reduces the risk of a stomach upset. Do not take a larger dose of Daraprim than been recommended since it may result in an overdose. Signs of a Daraprim overdose include nausea, abdominal pain, anxiety, hyperactivity, severe vomiting that may be accompanied by blood, and seizures.
Your doctor may ask you to avoid certain food items, drinks, or activities while you are on Daraprim. However, in most cases, there is no restriction of any kind, and you can continue with your daily activities even during treatment.
Daraprim may interact with certain medications, such as:
- Gold sodium thiomalate
It may not be safe to buy Daraprim if you are already taking any of the above medicines, since the interactions could prove to be dangerous. Inform your doctor about all the drugs you are taking before you begin treatment with this medication.

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.
