What are Generics?
Generic drugs marketed without brand names contain the exact same active ingredients used in their brand-name counterparts, but cost significantly less. The drugs are required to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for safety, purity and effectiveness.
Altace (Ramipril) is used in the treatment of high blood pressure. Ramipril works by preventing the conversion of a chemical in your blood called angiotensin I into a more potent substance that increases salt and water retention in your body. It also enhances blood flow in your circulatory system.
Generic Altace is also marketed as: Acovil, cardace, Ramipril, Tritace.
*Altace® is manufactured by King Pharmaceuticals.
