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 OLMESARTAN (ole-me-SAR-tan)

BENICAR is a prescription medication that is indicated to lower blood pressure and improve blood flow. It belongs to a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. BENICAR works by blocking the action of certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more smoothly.

Directions

It is viral to take BENICAR exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in excess or fewer amounts unless your doctor changes your dose to ensure you get optimal results. BENICAR can be taken with or without food.

Strictly follow your doctor's instructions about the type and amount of liquids you should drink while taking BENICAR. Tell your doctor if you have a prolonged illness that causes diarrhea or vomiting. Keep using this medicine as directed, even if you feel better. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. You may need to use blood pressure medication for the rest of your life. Additionally, your blood pressure will need to be checked often. Visit your doctor regularly.

Cautions

Before taking BENICAR, patients should tell their doctor if:

  • they are trying to become pregnant
  • are already pregnant
  • breast-feeding or plan to breast-feed
It is important to tell your doctor about all the medicines you are taking, both prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, liver problems, or if you have lupus.

Side Effects

  • dizziness
  • upper respiratory tract infections
  • too much uric acid in the blood
