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 Atacand Plus
Atacand HCT (called Atacand Plus in Canada)
Atacand HCT is made of two important substances called Candesartan and Hydrochlorothiazide. Candesartan is a type of medicine that is also known as an angiotensin II receptor antagonist or a blocker. Candesartan ensures the smooth flow of blood by preventing narrowing of blood vessels. It is used to treat hypertension, i.e., high blood pressure and used with other drugs to resolve heart failure issues.
Hydrochlorothiazide keeps the body from absorbing too much mineral salts as it can lead to fluid retention. A combination of the two drugs is considered helpful in treating high blood pressure problems. Both of them widen blood vessels and help them to relax to allow easy movement of blood.
You can buy Atacand HCT from Canada Pharmacy for incredibly low rates and have it be delivered to you.
