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

    Exforge (amlodipine and valsartan) is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure in patients whose blood pressure is not controlled with only one medication and as starting therapy in patients who will most likely need more than one medication to lower their blood pressure.

    Directions

    Exforge (amlodipine/valsartan) comes in 5 mg/160 mg, 10 mg/160 mg, 5 mg/320 mg, and 10 mg/320 mg oral tablets.

    Your doctor will recommend an appropriate dose. Follow your doctor instructions on how to take Exforge and carefully read the information that comes with your prescription. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out to your doctor or pharmacist.

    Ingredients

    Exforge contains amlodipine, a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker, and valsartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker. All Exforge tablets also contain inactive ingredients such as colloidal silicon dioxide, crospovidone, magnesium stearate, and microcrystalline cellulose. The 5 mg/320 mg and 10 mg/320 mg tablets also contain iron oxide yellow and sodium starch glycolate. Hypromellose, iron oxides, polyethylene glycol, talc, and titanium dioxide make up the film coating.
