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.


Accupril is classified as an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor; it is a prescription medication. Accupril is used to treat high blood pressure, and it can be taken with other medications to treat heart failure.

Accupril is available in oral tablets of 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg, and 40 mg.

Quinapril is the Accupril generic.


Accupril should be taken exactly as directed by your doctor. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

For treating high blood pressure alone, the general dose of Accupril is 10 mg or 20 mg by mouth one time a day; however, based on response and tolerance to the medication, the dose can be altered. If blood pressure is not efficiently controlled with Accupril only, a diuretic (water pill) may be added to the treatment regimen.

When treating heart failure with Accupril, the dose is generally started at 5 mg by mouth twice a day. Based on response and tolerance to the medication, the dose may be altered.

A lower Accupril dose may be required for patients with kidney problems.


The active ingredient in Accupril is quinapril.


If you have an allergy to any of the ingredients in Accupril or if you have ever had angioedema (swelling) caused by an ACE-inhibitor, avoid use.

Avoid taking Accupril in conjunction with a neprilysin inhibitor such as sacubitril. Do not take Accupril for at least 36 hours of switching to or from a neprilysin inhibitor such as sacubitril/valsartan.

Avoid taking Accupril with aliskiren if you have diabetes.


Accupril has an FDA Boxed Warning regarding the risk of injury and death to the developing fetus. Accupril should be stopped immediately when pregnancy is detected.

  • Before beginning treatment with Accupril, talk to your doctor about:
    • Any and all prescription and nonprescription medications you may take
    • Any allergies you may have
    • Your current health conditions and medical history
    • Your current pregnancy and breastfeeding status
  • Anaphylactoid and related reactions can occur with Accupril. These reactions can also occur during desensitization with hymenoptera venom and during high-flux membrane exposure in patients receiving dialysis.
  • Angioedema of the face, arms, legs, lips, tongue, glottis, and larynx can be caused by Accupril. Immediately seek emergency medical attention if any of these occur.
  • Accupril can cause intestinal angioedema, which can cause stomach pain with or without nausea or vomiting.
  • Accupril can rarely cause liver failure.
  • Low blood pressure may occur with the use of Accupril.
  • Use of Accupril may cause abnormal white blood cell counts, especially in patients who experienced these abnormal counts with previous treatment with captopril, another ACE inhibitor. Patients who suffer from kidney problems, collagen vascular disease, or lupus may be at an increased risk.
  • Kidney function can be affected by use of Accupril.
  • High potassium levels in the blood can be caused by Accupril.
  • A dry cough may occur with the use of Accupril.
  • If you are undergoing surgery or anesthesia, use caution with Accupril.

Side Effects

Although these are not all of the Accupril side effects, headache, dizziness, fatigue, coughing, nausea, vomiting, and stomach pain can occur. Immediately talk to your doctor if you experience troublesome or persistent side effects.
