I believe losartan will be the first. And, the date of FDA approval is 1995. Since drug patents are good for 15 years from FDA approval... 2010 The specific date is April 14, 2010.

It's depressing isn't it?
Well, the good news is that ZOCOR will be generic next year so we can save money on the statin to buy the ARB.

Thank God for cheap HCTZ!

Lenin,

Just to let you know that I just had my blood work done and my cholesterol was high at 252.
The doc put me on NIACIN, that you can buy at Walmart CHEAP off the shelf.
In 1 week my cholesterol dropped to 195!
He told me it works pretty good.

If you get it though get the "no flush" or "sustained release" . Work yourself up to 500Mg in 1 week then give yourself 500 Mg. every other day. That is what he told me at least.

I have appointment in 2 months so we will see then how it does.
