Terms & Conditions of Program
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.
Lotensin is a prescription medication your doctor may prescribe to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure is when too much force is acting on the blood vessels' walls. This extra force can cause damage that leads to heart attack and stroke.
Lotensin belongs to the class of medications called angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by preventing the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II. By lowering levels of angiotensin II, Lotensin works to lower blood pressure and heart disease risk.
The usual dosage is 10 mg by mouth once daily. The dosage can be increased to a maximum of 40 mg by mouth once daily or 20 mg twice daily.
The active ingredient in Lotensin is benazepril.
