EQ Base meaning

What does EQ base stands for? Example is CADUET AMLODIPINE BESYLATE; ATORVASTATIN CALCIUM EQ 5MG BASE; EQ 10MG BASE. What does EQ and base mean? ## It means that the given dosage works in the body equivalent to that dosage. You might see a medication listed as being 4.5mgs base, equivalent to 5mgs. Thus, this given substance in a lower amount works like the original in a higher amount, according to the NIH. Is there anything else I can help with?

Does Caduet or Toprol XL contain a diuretic?

I would like to know whether or not Caduet or Toprol XL contain a diuretic because I am scheduled to take some tests (ECOG and ENG) that require me to discontinue diuretics 48 hours prior to the tests. ## No, neither of these medications contain a diuretic. Caduet contains the active ingredients Amlodipine and Atorvastatin, it is a combination medication that is used treat high blood pressure, cardiac conditions and reduce cholesterol levels. Toprol XL contains Metoprolol, which is a beta blocker used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions. Side effects to these medications may include: nausea, dizziness, stomach pain and joint/muscle aches. Are there any other questions?

Caduet Side Effects

Can Caduet control within 3 months if strict diet/excercise program is followed, and side effects of male sexual function. ## Generally, these types of medications take between 2 weeks to a month to reach their full effect and a diet and exercise program should help. However, there is no way to know if it will actually work for you, until you actually try it for awhile. Side effects can include: nausea, headache and dizziness. Any effect on male sexual function is very rare, most people don't experience it. Is there anything else I can help you with?

On screen/print spokesperson

Who is the guy appearing in marketing for Caduet shown on a football field. A past gridiron great? Why the association with football. Should we know this guy? He's not OJ, Elway or Marino--so who is he the marketing bigwigs picked to pitch the drug? ## I think it is Bob Griese of the Miami dolphins

Caduet 5/10

What is the price for 30 days when you have Anthem Senior Advantage Insurance. The pharmacy said to find out on line, but I haven't been able to get a site to go on. Thank you. ## WHAT IS THE COST OF A 30 SUPPLY OF CAUDET? ## Sorry, there is no way for us to know that, you would have to contact your insurance company, they should have a website, or a toll free number you can call to find out.
