What is a Generic Drug?

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.

    • Do not drive, operate heavy machinery, or participate in other potentially hazardous activities until you know how the medication affects you.
    • Do not take Silenor with alcohol.
    • Taking Silenor with other CNS depressants or antihistamines may enhance sedative effects, possibly warranting a dose reduction.
    • Silenor is not recommended for use in patients with severe sleep apnea.

    Side Effects

    Sleepiness, sedation, nausea, and upper respiratory tract infection are common Silenor side effects; however, these are not all the side effects that can occur. Call your doctor immediately if you have side effects that worry you or will not resolve.
