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


    MAVIK (trandolapril) is a prescription medication used to lower high blood pressure. Since high blood pressure is a component of several diseases, it can be used to treat the following:

    • Heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF)
    • Hypertension
    • Left ventricular dysfunction
    • Post- heart attack heart failure

    MAVIK is a type of medication called an ACE inhibitor. It prevents the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II, which decreases blood pressure. MAVIK is converted to its active form in the liver.
