I am a 71 yr old female. I have taking avapro 150 mg for over 10 years with very good control of my blood pressure. Last week I started taking the generic version irbesartan. A few days after I started the generic version I notice I felt extremely tired, exhausted after doing minimal work. Is there a difference between the avapro and generic drug. I have had no other changes in medications.

There is no major difference between the brand and the generic. The active ingredient and strength are exactly the same. The tablet excipients (fillers, binders, colors etc) may be different and you could be reacting to one of these. If your symptoms persist see your doctor.
