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.

How to Use Daraprim
Take Daraprim by mouth usually once or twice daily or as directed by your doctor. Take Daraprim with food to decrease nausea and vomiting. If vomiting is severe or continues, your doctor may lower your dose or direct you to stop taking Daraprim. Your doctor will prescribe another medication (folic/folinic acid) to prevent blood problems caused by pyrimethamine. Follow your doctor's directions carefully. Drink plenty of fluids to prevent kidney problems if you are taking a "sulfa" medication with pyrimethamine. Daraprim works best when the amount of drug in your body is kept at a constant level. Take Daraprim and other antiparasitic drugs regularly, exactly as prescribed by your doctor. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day. Dosage of Daraprim is based on the type of infection, your medical condition, age, and response to treatment. The length of time you will take Daraprim depends on your infection.
