Trasicor (Oxprenolol)and/or alternatives
General Information on Trasicor
Trasicor is a medication that belongs to the drug class known as beta blockers. The chemical name of Trasicor is oxprenolol, which is also available separately as a generic drug with the same properties and mode of action as Trasicor.
Trasicor blocks ‘beta receptors’, which are chemicals found in the heart and other different parts of the body, although this medicine only targets the receptors in the heart. By blocking beta receptors, Trasicor stops the effects of 2 natural hormones known as adrenalin and noradrenalin. This allows the heart to beat more slowly and reduce the pressure at which blood flows, thus curbing high blood pressure. Therefore, Trasicor is useful for the control of hypertension.
Since Trasicor slows down heart rate and blood pressure, the amount of energy required by the heart for blood circulation is also reduced. As a result, the heart requirement for oxygen is also reduced, making Trasicor useful for the treatment of angina. Angina is a type of chest pain that can surface when the heart’s oxygen requirements are not met. By easing the load on the heart, Trasicor can be used in the prevention of angina attacks.
You may also buy Trasicor online as per the doctor’s prescription for the treatment of irregular heartbeat, also called arrhythmia, since it allows electric pulses in the heart to become more regular. Apart from these heart problems, Trasicor is also useful in the treatment of certain symptoms caused by anxiety, like sweating, tremors and rapid heartbeat.
Side effects of Trasicor
Trasicor is known to commonly cause dizziness and fatigue. While these side effects are mild, you must take certain precautions. Avoid performing tasks that require a high level of alertness and concentration, like driving and operating machinery.
Trasicor may cause dangerous side effects if it is stopped immediately, especially in patients diagnosed with ischemic heart disease. The dosage would be gradually reduced over a period of 1 to 2 weeks, as per your doctor’s instructions.
Trasicor commonly causes dry mouth and constipation as side effects. They are usually mild, but you must let your doctor know if they become intolerable. Other less common side effects include dizziness, tiredness, depression and cold hands and feet.
Dosage of Trasicor
Trasicor is to be taken as per the dosage prescribed by your doctor. Do not take a dosage larger than prescribed, and do not continue your treatment with Trasicor for more than the prescribed time. You may buy Trasicor in the form of oral tablets with 3 strengths- Trasicor 20mg, Trasicor 40mg and Trasicor 80mg. The tablets may be taken with or without meals. The tablets need to be swallowed whole with water, not broken or chewed.
Trasicor is usually taken in 2 or 3 equal doses per day. However your doctor may prescribe a different frequency pattern you would have to follow. Do not stop taking Trasicor unless your doctor tells you to do so. In most cases, Trasicor is gradually stopped by reducing the daily dose over time.
Trasicor can interact with several other medications, including ACE inhibitors, alpha blockers, antipsychotic medications and other beta blockers. You must tell your doctor about all the medicines you take before you buy Trasicor.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
