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.

Rescriptor Drug Information
Rescriptor is used with other HIV medications to help control HIV infection. It helps to decrease the amount of HIV in your body so your immune system can work better. This lowers your chance of getting HIV complications (such as new infections, cancer) and improves your quality of life. Delavirdine belongs to a class of drugs known as non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs). Delavirdine is not a cure for HIV infection. To decrease your risk of spreading HIV disease to others,(1) continue to take all HIV medications exactly as prescribed by your doctor, (2) always use an effective barrier method (latex or polyurethane condoms/dental dams) during all sexual activity, and (3) do not share personal items (such as needles/syringes, toothbrushes, and razors) that may have contacted blood or other body fluids. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
How to Use Rescriptor
Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start taking delavirdine and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Take Rescriptor by mouth with or without food, usually 3 times daily or as directed by your doctor. If you cannot swallow the tablets whole, you may dissolve your dose of the 100-milligram tablets in at least 3 ounces (90 milliliters) of water. Let the tablets sit for a few minutes, then stir and drink the mixture right away. Rinse the glass with more water and drink the rinse water to make sure that you have taken the entire dose. Note that the 200-milligram tablets cannot be dissolved and must be swallowed whole. If you have a condition of little or no stomach acid (achlorhydria), you should take delavirdine with an acidic beverage such as orange or cranberry juice. If you are also taking an antacid or a buffered form of the medication didanosine, take it at least 1 hour before or after delavirdine. It is very important to continue taking Rescriptor (and other HIV medications) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any doses. Do not increase your dose, take Rescriptor more often than prescribed, or stop taking it (or other HIV medicines) even for a short time unless directed to do so by your doctor. Skipping or changing your dose without approval from your doctor may cause the amount of virus to increase, make the infection more difficult to treat (resistant), or worsen side effects. For the best effect, take Rescriptor at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take Rescriptor at the same times every day.
Before taking delavirdine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Rescriptor may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Rescriptor, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,liver problems. During pregnancy, Rescriptor should be used only when clearly needed. Treatment can lower the risk of passing HIV infection to your baby, and delavirdine may be part of that treatment. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is not known if delavirdine passes into breast milk. Because breast milk can transmit HIV, do not breast-feed.
If you miss a dose of Rescriptor, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
