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.
Coversyl is a prescription medication to treat high blood pressure and used for patients at risk of congestive heart failure or other cardiac events resulting from their elevated blood pressure. In rarer instances it may be prescribed for individuals following a heart attack, and as an ACE inhibitor medication it works by relaxing blood vessels so that they are less constricted and blood pressure is reduced from it. Coversyl is often prescribed with instructions to use this medication along with digoxin or diuretics, and dosage will vary based on specific treatment aims related to high blood pressure itself or risk factors related to it.
You can buy Coversyl with a prescription, and your best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Pharmacy.
High blood pressure control / after heart attack: Starting dose of Coversyl 5mg taken once daily. The dose may be increased after 2 weeks up to a maximum of 8 mg once daily depending on blood pressure control.

Coversyl medication should be taken before a meal and on an empty stomach. Once-daily doses should be taken in the morning before breakfast. Seniors and people with kidney disease may require smaller doses.
The active ingredient in Coversyl is Perindopril.
