Basic Information On Diacomit
Diacomit is an anticonvulsant drug and is used for treating epilepsy. This drug is not related to other anticonvulsants and it belongs to the class of aromatic allylic alcohols. It has been proved that the Diacomit drug may cause an increase in GABA intensity in brain tissues. It also is used for improving the effectiveness of other anticonvulsants. This may be due to the factor that Diacomit tend to inhibit certain enzymes. It may also be used with Valproate and Clobazam for treating refractory generalized tonic-clonic seizures in some patients.
Precautions/Side Effects For Diacomit
Diacomit may lead to an increase in plasma accumulation of other anticonvulsants. This property may cause certain side effects. Stitipentol is the main ingredient of this drug and may interact with other drugs including anticonvulsants. It is also known to increase the potency of certain drugs such as Primidone and Phenobarbital. Any side effect occurring due to the increase in potency may be reversed by reducing the dosage of such other drug. In some patients, brand or generic Diacomit may cause anorexia. You may also suffer from weight loss, drowsiness and insomnia. The drug may also lead to hypotonia and dystonia.
You should not use this drug if you are allergic to Stitipentol. You should inform your physician if you suffer or have suffered from psychoses or from delirium. If used in conjunction with sodium valproate , brand or generic Diacomit may induce vomiting or nausea. This drug is not very effective in treating refractory epilepsy in adolescents and adults.
Diacomit is available in gelatin capsule form. It comes in 250mg and 500mg potency. The drug is also available in the powder form, which is then used for making a drinkable suspension. The sachets of powder are also available in 250mg and 500mg sizes. The recommended dosage of the drug is 50mg/kg per day. However, you should consult your doctor for personal dosage based on your requirements and condition. Diacomit should be taken with meals. Based on the dosage, it may be taken twice or thrice a day. If you are taking any other anticonvulsants, then you should consult your physician. Your doctor may have to reduce the dosage of other anticonvulsants.

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.
