Tekturna alternative medicine due to side effects

What is a good alternative medication for tekturna which is working well for black male 63 yrs old experiencing side effects of serious hives, swelling, and itching. ## That sounds like an allergic reaction, which could continue to get worse and become life threatening, so he needs to seek medical treatment. Then, he can discuss the issue with his doctor and they can prescribe an appropriate alternative. Are you sure it's due to the Tekturna? Does he take any other medications?

tecterna 150 mg ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## This drug is actually spelled Tekturna, and it is FDA approved earlier this year. If you Google Tekturna there are numerous websites on it.
