Basic Information On Zelapar
Zelapar belongs to the MAO B inhibitor drug category. It is used to treat Parkinson's disease. Patients suffering from Parkinson's disease need dopamine supply to their brain to control their body movements. The Zelapar drug prevents dopamine breakdown and increases its supply to the brain, thus helping the brain to better control body movements. On an average it enables patients to have 2.2 hours less off time a day. It is used in combination with levodopa/carbidopa to better manage the symptoms in case therapy alone with levodopa/carbidopa has not delivered satisfactory results. It has a nice grapefruit flavor and it disintegrates within seconds. It is a safe and effective medication which delivers more active drug to the brain and yields much lower level of Selegiline byproducts.
Precautions / Side Effects Of Zelapar
Zelapar contains Selegiline. It may cause headaches, sore or stiff neck, sensitivity to light, dilated (wide open) pupils, nausea, or dizziness. More severe side effects could be hallucinations, depression, and allergic reactions. You may experience compelling urges like sexual urges or urge to gamble. You should tell your doctor about over the counter and prescription medications taken by you. Zelapar should not be taken with meperidine or any other type of analgesic. You must not stop brand or generic Zelapar suddenly without doctor’s approval. This may cause adverse side effects.
You should not take Zelapar if you are allergic to Selegiline or any of its other ingredients. Brand or generic Zelapar should not be administered with methadone, tramadol, and propoxyphene. It should also not be taken with non-selective MAOIs, selective MAO-B inhibitors, and any type of tricyclic antidepressants.

The recommended starting dosage for Zelapar is 1.25mg taken once a day. It is to be taken before breakfast and without liquid. You should avoid taking food or fluids 5 minutes before or just after taking this medicine. It should be continued for six weeks.

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.
