Did you know:
Doctors often get lulled into thinking that all generic blood pressure meds are inexpensive.
The truth is that the price is mostly a reflection of demand – with greater demand resulting in the best deals.
I have noted before that Amlodipine 5mg or 10mg can be had from Sam’s or K-Mart for $5 for 30 tablets.
Nisoldipine is a calcium channel blocker with very similar attriputes. Despite the fact that it has been generic for some time now, however, Nisoldipine can be as much as $200 for 30 tablets!
