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.

INSPRA (Eplerenone) is a prescription medication used to two different types of cardiovascular issues:
INSPRA works by blocking a hormone that increases blood pressure called aldosterone. Normally, aldosterone increases blood pressure by increases how much sodium the kidneys retain when they make urine. By blocking this hormone, the blood pressure is decreased.
INSPRA works for hypertension by lowering blood pressure. In people with heart failure, it decreases the workload on the heart when blood pressure is lowered.
Take INSPRA exactly as prescribed by the doctor.
The dosage of INSPRA depends on the condition being treated:
The active ingredient in INSPIRA is eplerenone.
Some common drug interactions that may happen with INSPRA include:
INSPRA can cause high blood potassium (hyperkalemia), especially when taken with other medications that lower blood pressure. Your healthcare provider should check your potassium when starting the medication and periodically to ensure your potassium is a safe level. High potassium can cause heart problems if left untreated.
Common INSPRA side effects include:
