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.

  • Product Details

    Description

    Aceon (perindopril erbumine), an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I) is used to treat high blood pressure and stable coronary artery disease (CAD) to decrease the risk of cardiovascular death or heart attack.

    Aceon comes in oral tablets of 2 mg, 4 mg, and 8 mg strengths.

    Directions

    Read all the information that comes with your prescription. Take Aceon as your doctor has prescribed. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about any questions or concerns that arise.

    The recommended starting dose for treating high blood pressure is 4 mg by mouth once daily. Your doctor may increase the dose, up to a maximum of 16 mg per day, until your blood pressure is controlled.

    The recommended starting dose for treating stable CAD is 4 mg by mouth once daily for two weeks, then increased, as tolerated, to a maintenance dose of 8 mg by mouth once daily.

    Ingredients

    Each tablet of Aceon contains perindopril erbumine and the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silica (hydrophobic), lactose, magnesium stearate, and microcrystalline cellulose. Iron oxide is also found in the 4 mg and 8 mg tablets.

    Contraindications

    Do not take Aceon if you've had angioedema (swelling underneath the skin) with previous ACE-I use or if you have hereditary or idiopathic angioedema.
