Norvasc is a TABLET.

NORVASC is a calcium channel blocker used to treat angina (chest pain) and hypertension (high blood pressure) and other conditions caused by coronary artery disease. It works by relaxing (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. NORVASC is also used to prevent certain types of chest pain (angina). It may help to increase your ability to exercise and decrease the frequency of angina attacks.

This medication is not intended to be used to treat attacks of chest pain when they occur.

Directions:

Take NORVASC exactly as prescribed by your doctor and follow the directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results, but do not change your dosage without consulting your physician first.

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.
