IS THERE A SUBSTITUTE FOR MICARDIS HTC THAT IS CHEAPER AND STILL WORKS AS GOOD.
Please suggest a cheaper but same effect substitute for Micardis 80, the one which shouldn't have any adverse side effects.
The Military pharmacy formulary no longer carries Micardis, and has substituted Micardis with either "Diovan Hctz" or "Hyzaar". You may want to check the prices for those 2 drugs.
substitute for micardis
My pharmacist suggested amodipine besylate, trade name Mylan. He said it would be much better than plain amodipine, that the besylate was important to more closely resemble Micardis.
My insurance recommended Losartan to replace Micardis, because of the cost, I was on it for a month, it didn't work for me, plus it gave me headaches, had to go back to Micardis.
My Pharmacist and Cardiologist just changed micardis to losartan potassium at a MUCH lower cost. Check it out with your Dr.
