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.
Aceon is prescription medication used for hypertension treatment or to treat stable coronary artery disease. Its effectiveness comes from the medication relaxing blood vessels and improving blood flow.
Aceon for hypertension patients is most effective with lowered cholesterol levels and a healthy body weight, as is standard with all ACE-inhibitor class medications. For coronary artery disease it lowers the risk of heart failure and is often used with anti-platelet, anti-hypertensive, or lipid-lowering therapy.
Hypertension: Aceon medication is taken as a recommended initial dose of 4 mg once a day. The dose may be titrated as needed to a maximum of 16 mg per day. Maintenance dosages range from 4 mg to 8 mg administered as a single daily dose or in two divided doses.
Coronary artery disease: Branded Aceon or Aceon generic is taken as an initial dose of 4 mg once daily for 2 weeks, and then increased as tolerated, to a maintenance dose of 8 mg once daily. For anyone aged 70 or up Aceon should be given as a 2 mg dose once daily in the first week, followed by 4 mg once daily in the second week and 8 mg once daily for maintenance dose if tolerated.
The active ingredient in Aceon is Perindopril.
Do not exceed the maximum dosage amount specified with your prescription. Do not take Aceon if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant unless your doctor approves.
Patients with renal failure (kidneys) should not use Aceon unless advised to by their doctor. Use of Aceon may promote angioedema, and African Americans are more at risk of angioedema when using ACE-inhibitor medications.
Negative drug interaction risks are possible between Aceon and other Rx medications, including lorazepam, baclofen, furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide, metformin, prednisone, and simvastatin.
Diabetics taking Aliskiren should not use Aceon medication.
Let your doctor know of all medications you are currently taking before getting a prescription and going to buy Aceon tablets online.
Side effects from using Aceon are possible, but some users may experience dizziness, coughing, back pain, or throat irritation. If side effects are seen, you may want to stop use and speak to your doctor again regarding hypertension treatment medication alternatives.
