General Information on Capozide
Capozide is generally used for treating high blood pressure. It is the combination of Captopril and hydrochlorothiazide. The Capozide belongs to a drug class known as ACE inhibitors.
Commercially, Capozide is known as ACE Inhibitor. (ACE stands for angiotensin converting enzyme). The enzyme causes the relaxation of blood vessels in the human body, thus reducing blood pressure. The drug is available as a tablet in three forms – Capozide 15 mg, Capozide 25 mg and Capozide 50 mg.
The inactive ingredients of the drug include lactose, coloring substances, cellulose, starch and stearic acid.
Side effects of Capozoide
You should not buy Capozoide if you have previously suffered an allergy to any ingredient of Capozoid. This would induce adverse reactions like rashes and itches in your body. So, check the ingredients before you buy it. If you have painful urination, the drug will worsen your condition. So, never take Capozoide if you have any problem with urination. Similarly, if you are consuming sulfate or ketanserin, they might interact with the drug.
Before you buy Capozoide, inform your doctor if you are planning to get pregnant. Also let your doctor know about your medical history and give the full list of medications that you are currently consuming. If you have ever had angioedema, bowel problems or kidney related problems in the past, make sure you explain that to your doctor.
Some of the common side effects of Capozoide are as follows:
- Inability to stand for long time
- Change in taste
Some of the serious side effects include severe allergic reactions, burning sensation in throat, tight chest, blistering in skin, diarrhea, blurred vision, stammering speech, yellow eyes and dry skin. If you are facing any of those, make sure you consult a doctor instantly.
Capozide should not be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. If you take the tablet when you are pregnant, it could even cause the death of the fetus. Since capozoid mixes with the breast milk, you should not take it while breast feeding.
Dosage of Capozoide
You should take the drug on empty stomach before each meal. In most cases, three Capozoide 20 mg tablets are recommended to be taken per day. The dosage could be reduced or increased based on the condition of the patient. So, always follow the prescription that your doctor gives.
The drug will increase the amount of urination. In order to sleep peacefully, take the drug before 6 pm. Never take two doses at the same time because it could lead to some serious side effects.
Do not drive after taking Capozide as it might cause dizziness.
People who are consuming diuretics along with Capozoide will face adverse reactions. It might also cause hypotension at times.
If you take lithium along with this drug, it could cause adverse reactions. If you are on diuretic pills, you would have a high level of lithium in your system. Therefore, your doctor may advise you to stop taking diuretics along with this drug.

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.
