Generic Uniretic

Is Generic Moexipril/HCTZ as Good as Uniretic?

All generic medications must undergo certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns each generic a rating. An "AB" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication.
All of the generic versions of Uniretic currently available have an "AB" rating, meaning they should be equivalent to Uniretic.
However, generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients than the brand-name medication. This might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients that may cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.

Is It Cheaper to Take Moexipril and Hydrochlorothiazide Separately?

It depends on your individual situation. For some people, taking Uniretic is less expensive than taking the individual medications. This may be the case for people who have insurance coverage, and pay a co-pay for each of their medicines. These people will only have to pay one co-pay for Uniretic, instead of two co-pays if the medications in Uniretic are taken separately.
However, this may not be true for all situations. Talk to your pharmacist if you have concerns about your medication costs; your pharmacist can help you determine the least expensive way to obtain your medications.
