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.


Accuretic is a prescription hypertension medication that effectively lowers blood pressure to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events, strokes, or myocardial infraction. It is a combination ACE inhibitor and diuretic medication. This means it relaxes blood vessels and caused your body to produce more urine, with relaxed blood vessels decreasing pressure and the increased urine promoting elimination of excess salt and water. It is important to take this medication regularly for it to be fully effective, and patients should take it even if they feel well.

You can buy Accuretic with a doctor's prescription at your local pharmacy, and the best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.

The standard Accuretic dosage is to take the medication once daily with or without food in the morning. It is best not to take Accuretic in the evening because it does cause increased urination. Try to take your hypertension medication at the same time each day.


The active ingredients in Accuretic are Quinapril and Hydrochlorothiazide.


Tell your doctor if you have had allergic reactions to any other ACE inhibitor medications before starting on Accuretic.

Also tell your doctor if you have any history of gout, kidney problems, liver disease, dehydration, untreated mineral imbalances (like high or low potassium), lupus, or skin cancer.

This medication may make you dizzy. It is best to limit or avoid any intoxicant substances while on the medication as this could make dizziness / disorientation worse.

HTCZ hypertensions medication can increase risk of dehydration, so it is a good idea to increase fluid intake while using Accuretic.

Medication may also increase skin sensitivity to sun. Be sure to use high-SPF sunscreen if in sun for prolonged periods and try to stay in the shade as much as possible.

Diabetics using Accuretic will want to monitor their blood sugar levels more regularly because medication can affect these levels.


There is the possibility of drug interaction risks between Accuretic and certain RX medications, including aliskiren / dofetilide / lithium / gold injections / sacubitril / everolimus / sirolimus / losartan / valsartan/ birth control pills containing drospirenone / quinolone antibiotics like ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin tetracycline antibiotics like doxycycline, minocycline / thyroid medications like levothyroxine / osteoporosis bisphosphonates like alendronate.

Side Effects

Accuretic side effects are uncommon, but some people may experience tiredness, headache, dizziness, or light headedness. If Accuretic side effects are seen, then stop using this medication and speak with your doctor again about hypertensions treatment options.
