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.

Gabitril is a medication prescribed to treat focal seizure disorders.
Focal seizures are seizures that start in one part of the brain and spread to other regions. Some people experience "fully aware focal seizures" and are still conscious and aware of having a seizure while it's happening (simple partial seizure). Others may lose consciousness or not be aware of the seizure, called a complex partial seizure.
Symptoms may include muscle contractions, eye movements, stomach pain, numbness, or contractions on one side of the body.
Gabitril works by enhancing the activity of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA suppresses signals in nerve cells, including the type of signals that cause seizures.
Take Gabitril exactly as directed by your doctor.
The starting Gabitril dosage is typically 4 mg by mouth once daily. Your doctor may increase the dosage by 4-8 mg each week. The maximum daily dosage is 56 mg divided two to four times throughout the day.
The active ingredient in Gabitril is tiagabine.
