A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Banzel is a seizure medication, also called an anti-epileptic or anticonvulsant. Banzel is used together with other medicines to treat seizures caused by Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a severe form of childhood epilepsy that also causes developmental and behavior problems. Banzel is for use in adults and children who are at least 1 year old.
You should not use Banzel if you have a severe liver disease, or a genetic heart rhythm disorder called short QT syndrome. You should not stop taking Banzel suddenly, unless your doctor tells you to stop the medicine because of a serious side effect. Some people have thoughts about suicide while taking seizure medication. Stay alert to changes in your mood or symptoms.
