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.

    Description

    Your doctor may prescribe Edarbi if you have high blood pressure, which is also called hypertension.

    Hypertension is a chronic condition where high blood pressure can slowly damage the various organs of the body. Edarbi is an angiotensin II receptor blocker that lowers blood pressure to treat hypertension.

    Angiotensin II is a protein in the blood that increases blood pressure. Edarbi blocks this protein to keep blood pressure low.
