Basic Information On Viramune
Viramune is an antiretroviral drug used for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. It belongs to the family of antiretroviral called non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor. It works by preventing the action of the enzyme reverse transcriptase in viruses which are responsible for the formation of DNA strands as it multiplies. The Viramune drug is not effective against HIV -2 infections due to incompatibility in the mode of action of this drug on reverse transcriptase enzyme found in that type of infection.
Side Effects/Precautions For Viramune
The most common side effects of Viramune or Nevirapine include vomiting and nausea that usually do not persist for long. You may also feel consistently tired when you are on medication. Many people also experience changes to the shape and size of their body parts when on treatment with brand or generic Viramune: women have changes around their waist and chest, while men mostly have fat accumulation on their arms and face. Serious side effects like flu and fever with skin rashes indicate signs of infections, which HIV individuals are susceptible to, due to compromised immunity. Rash is a side effect that may make your doctor decide to stop further treatment with this drug.
Before you start treatment with Nevirapine, you must learn about all drugs that can interact with this medication. Blood thinners and medication to prevent organ rejections are known to cause interaction. Medication for treating fungal infections and other antiretroviral for HIV can compound side effects. Pregnant women can take brand or generic Viramune as it is not known to cause any harm to the unborn baby. However, breastfeeding is not recommended as it increases the risk of infecting an infection free baby.
The recommended dose for adults is 200 mg per day for the first 14 days. Following this, the dose can be increased to two 200 mg tablets per day. This medication is given with other antiretroviral medication. For children, the dose recommended is 150 mg/m² per day, which is increased to twice that, after the first 14 days. Individuals who experience rash may not have dose increase and if the severity of rash is high, then the medication is stopped. If any hepatic problems are diagnosed, then medication has to be discontinued.

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.
