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.
Also Known as Coversyl Plus
Aceon Plus (perindopril/indapamide) is a two-drug combination used to help lower blood pressure.
Perindopril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, works by relaxing your blood vessels, enabling easier blood flow. Indapamide, a diuretic (water pill), works by making you urinate to help your body get rid of extra salt and water.
Aceon Plus should be taken as prescribed by your doctor. Any questions or concerns should be referred to your doctor or pharmacist.
Aceon Plus is typically taken by mouth once daily. Because Aceon Plus causes patients to urinate, patients are recommended to take the medication in the morning.
Perindopril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, and indapamide, a diuretic (water pill), are the active ingredients in Aceon Plus.
You should avoid taking Aceon Plus if you are allergic to other ACE inhibitors, thiazide diuretics such as hydrochlorothiazide, or to any of the other ingredients contained in Aceon Plus.
Tell your doctor if you have ever had swelling or an allergic reaction after taking an ACE inhibitor or a thiazide diuretic.
Tiredness, headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, or dry cough can occur with Aceon Plus medication. Other side effects may also occur. Tell your doctor right away if you have bothersome or persistent side effects.
