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.

Safinamide is used with another medication (levodopa/carbidopa) to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease. It can help improve symptoms such as shakiness, stiffness, and difficulty moving. It can also help reduce the amount of "off" time (periods of slow movement or stiffness). Safinamide belongs to a class of drugs known as MAO inhibitors. It works by increasing the levels of certain natural substances in the brain (such as dopamine). Parkinson's disease is thought to be caused by too little dopamine in the brain.
How to Use Xadago
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking safinamide and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Xadago by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. The Dosage of Xadago is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not increase your dose or take it more often than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. Use Xadago regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Do not stop taking Xadago without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when Xadago is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased. A very serious high blood pressure reaction may rarely occur if you eat a large amount of tyramine while taking safinamide and for 2 weeks after you stop it. Avoid foods that are high in tyramine, like aged cheeses (such as Stilton cheese). Consult your doctor or dietician about which foods you should avoid and if you do not feel well after eating or drinking certain foods while taking Xadago. See also Side Effects section. Tell your doctor if Xadago stops working well or if your condition gets worse.

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you take anything in the list of products that may interact with Xadago, or any of the products that increase serotonin, within 2 weeks before or after taking safinamide.

Xadago Side Effects
Dizziness or drowsiness may occur. If either of these effects lasts or gets worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. To reduce the risk of dizziness and lightheadedness, get up slowly when rising from a sitting or lying position, especially when you first start taking safinamide. Remember that Xadago has been prescribed because your doctor has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using Xadago do not have serious side effects. Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects,fainting, loss of balance, mental/mood changes (such as anxiety, agitation, hallucinations), worsening muscle stiffness/twitching/uncontrollable movements, unusual strong urges (such as increased gambling, increased sexual urges). Some people taking safinamide have fallen asleep suddenly during their usual daily activities (such as talking on the phone, driving). In some cases, sleep occurred without any feelings of drowsiness beforehand. This sleep effect may occur anytime during treatment with safinamide even if you have used Xadago for a long time. If you experience increased sleepiness or fall asleep during the day, do not drive or take part in other possibly dangerous activities until you have discussed this effect with your doctor. Your risk of this sleep effect is increased by using alcohol or other medications that can make you drowsy. See also Precautions section.
