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.

Emsam Drug Information

  • Emsam Overview

    Selegiline is an antidepressant (monoamine oxidase inhibitor) that treats depression by restoring the balance of certain natural substances (neurotransmitters) in the brain. Selegiline can improve your mood and feelings of well-being. Emsam is a patch for use on the skin.

  • Emsam Warnings

    Antidepressant medications are used to treat a variety of conditions, including depression and other mental/mood disorders. These medications can help prevent suicidal thoughts/attempts and provide other important benefits. However, studies have shown that a small number of people (especially people younger than 25) who take antidepressants for any condition may experience worsening depression, other mental/mood symptoms, or suicidal thoughts/attempts. Therefore, it is very important to talk with the doctor about the risks and benefits of antidepressant medication (especially for people younger than 25), even if treatment is not for a mental/mood condition. Tell the doctor right away if you notice worsening depression/other psychiatric conditions, unusual behavior changes (including possible suicidal thoughts/attempts), or other mental/mood changes (including new/worsening anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping, irritability, hostile/angry feelings, impulsive actions, severe restlessness, very rapid speech). Be especially watchful for these symptoms when a new antidepressant is started or when the dose is changed. Emsam must not be used in children younger than 12 years due to an increased risk of serious side effects (such as extremely high blood pressure). Also, Emsam is not recommended for use in children between 12 and 17 years old. Studies have not shown it to work in children in this age group.

  • How to Use Emsam

    Read the Medication Guide available from your pharmacist before you start using selegiline and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Follow the package instructions for using Emsam. Make sure you understand how to apply a new patch and dispose of the used product. Do not cut the patch into smaller sizes. Do not use the patch if it appears broken, cut or damaged. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Before applying the patch, wash the area you will be using for the patch gently and thoroughly with soap and water. Rinse and dry with a clean dry towel. Do not apply the patch to hairy/oily/red/cut/irritated/broken or scarred/calloused skin. Remove the patch from the foil pouch and apply as directed by the manufacturer. Apply one patch to an area of clean dry skin on the upper body (torso), upper thigh, or on the outside of the upper arm where it will not be rubbed by tight clothing. Change the patch daily at about the same time each day. Apply the patch to a different area on your body each time to avoid irritation. If your patch falls off, apply a new patch to a new area and continue on your same schedule. Be sure to remove the old patch, fold it in half so it sticks to itself, and throw it away out of the reach of children and pets. Do not touch the sticky side with your fingers. Wash your hands with soap and water after handling the patch. To reduce your risk of side effects, your doctor may start you at a low dose and gradually increase your dose. Usually, your daily dose will not be more than 12 milligrams. Once your condition improves and you are better for a while, your doctor may work with you to reduce your regular dose. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Do not apply more patches or leave the patch on for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster and your risk of side effects will increase. Use Emsam regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. It may take several weeks for the full benefits of Emsam to be noticed. Do not stop using Emsam without consulting your doctor. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

  • Emsam Precautions

    Before using selegiline, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Emsam may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Emsam, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,a certain kind of adrenal gland tumor (pheochromocytoma), cerebrovascular disease (e.g., stroke), heart problems (e.g., congestive heart failure, heart attack), personal or family history of high blood pressure, history of severe/frequent headaches, personal/family history of mental/mood disorders (e.g., bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia), liver problems, certain nervous system diseases (Parkinson's syndrome, seizures), overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), personal or family history of glaucoma (angle-closure type). Emsam may make you dizzy or drowsy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Avoid alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). To minimize dizziness and the risk of fainting, get up slowly when rising from a sitting or lying position. Avoid exposing your skin to direct heat sources such as heating pads, electric blankets, heat lamps, saunas, hot tubs, heated water beds, or prolonged direct sunlight while wearing your selegiline patch. Heat sources may cause more drug to be released into your body, increasing the chance of side effects. If you are going to have an MRI test, tell testing personnel that you are using this patch. Some patches may contain metals that can cause serious burns during an MRI. Ask your doctor whether you will need to remove your patch before the test and apply a new patch afterward, and how to do so properly. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist you are on Emsam. You may need to stop using Emsam beforehand. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Caution is advised when using Emsam in the elderly because they may be more sensitive to the effects of the drug, especially the effects on blood pressure. Emsam should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Since untreated mental/mood problems (such as depression) can be a serious condition, do not stop taking Emsam unless directed by your doctor. If you are planning pregnancy, become pregnant, or think you may be pregnant, immediately discuss with your doctor the benefits and risks of using Emsam during pregnancy. It is not known if Emsam passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

  • Emsam Misdose

    If you miss a dose of Emsam, use it as soon as you remember unless it is close to the time for your next dose. In that case, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not apply 2 doses to catch up.

The risk of serotonin syndrome/toxicity may be more likely when you start or increase the dose of these drugs. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are using any of these medications before, during, or within 2 weeks after treatment with selegiline. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have taken fluoxetine during at least 5 weeks before starting selegiline. Discuss with your doctor how much time to wait between starting or stopping any of these drugs and taking selegiline. Check the labels on all your medicines (such as allergy, cough-and-cold products, diet pills) because they may contain dextromethorphan, decongestants, or stimulants. Ask your pharmacist about the safe use of those products. It is very important that you follow special dietary restrictions in order to limit the amount of tyramine in your diet if you are using the higher strength patches (9 or 12 milligrams). Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas) or eating large amounts of chocolate. Caffeine can increase the side effects of Emsam.

  • Emsam Side Effects

    What are Emsam side effects?

    Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication. Side effects from Emsam may occur at the beginning or at the end of treatment and may also depend on the length of time an individual remains on the treatment. Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment. Individuals may also experience side effects from Emsam as a result of an interaction with other medications.

    Side Effects of Emsam

    The side effects of Emsam may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Emsam. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Emsam may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.

    Prescription drug side effects can be serious and may cause patients to stop the treatment. However, when side effects from the use of a prescription drug, such as Emsam, do occur a patient should consult their physician. A physician may prescribe an additional treatment in order to control the symptoms or an adjustment in the dosage may be made. In addition, changes to diet, exercise or other lifestyle activities may help to lessen the side effects of Emsam.

    By understanding side effects and the factors which may influence the occurrence of side effects patients are empowered to take an active role in their care.
