  • Exforge

    Anyone else see the adverts for Exforge (amlodipine besilate/valsartan) in the PJ and C&D last week? Even though they are using expensive amlodipine, the cost is still the same as valsartan alone.

    The obvious question therefore is when does the patent on valsartan expire?

      Not 'waste of money'?

      Has no one mentioned to Novartis that combination anti-hypertension products hardly fly off the GPs prescription pads in the UK?

          First thing that struck me, nice timing on the recent press publicity for fixed combination drugs to help compliance. Wonder what pre-prompted the writing of that article. Second thing to strike me was patent expiry.

          Anyway, the main reason why drug costs are so high, is that pharmacists are dispensing too many prescriptions. Its obvious!

          If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.
