What is a generic medication?

Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Benztropine Mesylate Drug Information

  • Benztropine Mesylate Overview

    Benztropine is used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease or involuntary movements due to the side effects of certain psychiatric drugs (antipsychotics such as chlorpromazine/haloperidol). Benztropine belongs to a class of medication called anticholinergics that work by blocking a certain natural substance (acetylcholine). This helps decrease muscle stiffness, sweating, and the production of saliva, and helps improve walking ability in people with Parkinson's disease. Anticholinergics can stop severe muscle spasms of the back, neck, and eyes that are sometimes caused by psychiatric drugs. It can also decrease other side effects such as muscle stiffness/rigidity (extrapyramidal signs-EPS). It is not helpful in treating movement problems caused by tardive dyskinesia and may worsen them. Benztropine should not be used in children younger than 3 years.

  • How to Use Benztropine Mesylate

    Take Benztropine Mesylate by mouth, usually 2 to 4 times a day with meals and at bedtime, or as a single dose at bedtime, or as directed by your doctor. Your doctor may start you at a low dose and increase your dose slowly to find the best dose for you. The Dosage of Benztropine Mesylate is based on your medical condition, age, and response to therapy. If you are using the oral solution, measure your dose with a special measuring spoon or device. Do not use a household spoon because it may not provide the correct dose. Take Benztropine Mesylate regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day. Take Benztropine Mesylate at least 1 hour before antacids containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium. Allow at least 1-2 hours between doses of benztropine and certain drugs for diarrhea (adsorbent antidiarrheals such as kaolin, pectin, attapulgite). Take Benztropine Mesylate at least 2 hours after ketoconazole. Antacids and some drugs for diarrhea may prevent the full absorption of benztropine, and Benztropine Mesylate may prevent the complete absorption of ketoconazole when these products are taken together. If you are taking Benztropine Mesylate for side effects from another medication, your doctor may instruct you to take it on a regular schedule or only as needed. If you are taking Benztropine Mesylate for Parkinson's disease, your doctor may change the dose of your other medications (e.g., levodopa). Follow your doctor's instructions closely. When used for an extended period, Benztropine Mesylate may not work as well and may require different dosing. Talk with your doctor if Benztropine Mesylate stops working well. Though it helps many people, Benztropine Mesylate may sometimes cause addiction. This risk may be higher if you have a substance use disorder (such as overuse of or addiction to drugs/alcohol). Do not increase your dose, take it more often, or use it for a longer time than prescribed. Properly stop the medication when so directed. Some conditions may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased. It may take 2-3 days before the benefit of Benztropine Mesylate takes effect. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
