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.
Valdoxan is a prescription antidepressant medication used to treat depression and is particularly effective for treating depression with anxiety. This medication was developed for patients with major depressive disorder, but as the first antidepressant with a non-monoaminergic component it is often a strong fit for major depression patients who also have severe anxiety along with their depression. Valdoxan 25mg is formulated to work as a MT1 and MT2 melatonergic receptors agonist and a 5-HT2C antagonist that re-synchronizes circadian rhythms in depressed patients.
Standard dosage is to take 1 Valdoxan 25mg once daily at bedtime. Dosage may vary depending on your doctor's determination and you should always take your medication exactly as indicated in your prescription.
Dosage may be adjusted to 50 mg (2 x 25 mg tablets) taken at bedtime if agomelatine treatment has no effect after two weeks.
The active ingredient in Valdoxan is Agomelatine.
Tell your doctor if you have any history of liver disease, hepatic failure, or general poor liver health / function before starting on Valdoxan. Also tell your doctor if you have any history of suicidal thoughts or have made suicide attempts before going ahead with this medication.
Use of this medication may not be suitable for patients over 75 years of age.
Be sure to take medication as consistently as indicated in your prescription. Failing to take medication for any more than a day or two will significantly lessen the medication's effectiveness for depression treatment and improving mood / energy and focus.
Do not take make up doses in place of a forgotten dose. If you forget to take your medication, resuming taking it at the same time the next day and also do not take 2 tablets at once to make up for missing one day's dose.
Do not stop taking Valdoxan medication unless you have discussed with your doctor and they have approved you to stop taking it.
There is the possibility of negative drug interactions between Valdoxan and other Rx medications, including fluvoxamine and ciprofloxacin, a very common antibiotic medication. Tell your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before receiving a prescription and proceeding to buy Valdoxan online.
Valdoxan side effects are possible, and some users may experience anxiety, back pain, constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, excessive sweating, fatigue, insomnia, migraines and headaches, or nausea. If side effects from Valdoxan are experienced you may want to discontinue use and talk to your doctor again about depression with anxiety treatment medication alternatives.
