Basic Information On Zaditen
Zaditen belongs to the drug category called antiallergics and asthma prophylactics. It is an anti-allergic used to treat allergic rhinitis (hayfever), allergic conjunctivitis, and mild allergic asthma in children. Its chemical ingredient, Ketotifen, is a kind of antihistamine medicine. Histamine is produced by the body to defend itself when it reacts with foreign substances called allergens. Histamines increase blood flow to the allergic area and aggravate the allergic response of the body. The Zaditen drug blocks histamine action and prevents the body from responding to allergens. These allergens often cause inflammation of the nose, nasal congestion, runny nose and sneezing. Allergens can even cause an asthma attack. Zaditen cannot control an asthma attack that has already started but it can reduce the frequency, severity and duration of asthma attacks.
Precautions / Side Effects Of Zaditen
Zaditen contains Ketotifen. You should inform your doctor if you are taking oral anti diabetic agents, as these agents, when taken with Ketotifen can increase the risk of bruising and bleeding; it may also affect blood sugar level. Consumption of alcohol, antihistamines, hypnotics or sedatives should also be reported to your doctor. Possible side effects of brand or generic Zaditen are sweating, runny nose and loss of appetite, insomnia, cough, chills, fever, sore throat, weakness and joint pain.
Ketotifen can increase the risk of convulsions, hence, you should apprise the doctor if you have epilepsy. Brand or generic Zaditen should not be given to children under 3 years of age. As Zaditen tablets contain lactose, people with hereditary intolerance for galactose, the Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption should not take this drug. This medication should be taken continuously for maximum efficacy. You should continue other asthma medications as Zaditen can only prevent asthma attacks, but cannot control an asthma attack that has already started.
The recommended Zaditen dosage for patients above 6 years of age is 1mg tablet taken twice daily. For patients in the age group 6months-3years, the dosage depends on the body weight. They are prescribed 0.05mg per kilogram of their body weight. This medication can be taken with or without food. In case you are taking syrup formulations, prefer measuring by oral syringe than the household spoons, as oral syringe gives a more accurate measurement. You must not tamper with the dosing schedule and take it strictly as prescribed by the doctor. In case you miss a dose, take it at the soonest possible. However, you should never take a double dose to make up for the missed dose.

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.
