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.

  • Product Details


    LOZOL (Indapamide) is a prescription medication that can treat edema (swelling caused by fluid buildup) and hypertension (high blood pressure). LOZOL belongs to the thiazide-diuretic class of medications.

    LOZOL works by causing the kidneys to release extra water and electrolytes into the urine. LOZOL blocks the passage of sodium ions, so sodium cannot re-enter the bloodstream. Chloride ions and water molecules follow the excreted sodium.

    LOZOL treats edema and hypertension by reducing the amount of fluid in the bloodstream.


    For edema, the starting dose is LOZOL 2.5 mg by mouth once daily. The dose may be increased to a maximum of 5 mg once daily.

    For hypertension, the starting dose is LOZOL 1.25 mg by mouth once daily. The maximum dose is 5 mg once daily.


    The active ingredient in LOZOL is indapamide.

    What is Lozol?

    Lozol, with the active ingredient indapamide, is a diuretic medication primarily used to treat high blood pressure and edema caused by certain conditions.

    How does Lozol work?

    Lozol works by helping the kidneys eliminate excess salt and water from the body, which can help reduce blood pressure and swelling.
