Generic Losartan/hctz vs Brand Hyzaar
Generic medications are chemically and therapeutically identical to the branded equivalent. This means that the active ingredients and the way the medication works inside of the body are the same. The potency and effectiveness of the medicine does not change in a generic form. The generic Losartan Hctz may not look exactly the same as the brand medication; the generic may be a different colour, shape or size. Another difference is the manufacturer of the medication. We currently brand from Canada and Turkey and the generic from India and Canada. It may come from other countries around the world.
