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.

Description

Chemical Name: IRBESARTAN (ir-be-SAR-tan)

AVAPRO belongs to a class of drugs known as angiotensin II AT1 receptor blockers (ARB) which have been proven to be effective in lowering blood pressure. AVAPRO is prescribed to treat a condition known as hypertension or high blood pressure. It may also be prescribed if high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes mellitus are present, to protect your kidney function. AVAPRO lowers blood pressure by specifically blocking a natural substance called angiotensin II, which normally narrows your blood vessels. Treatment with AVAPRO allows the blood vessels to relax. In addition, recent studies have shown that AVAPRO protects your kidneys by reducing protein in the urine. This in turn slows the progression of your kidney disease.
