Re: Atacand~anyone heard of it?
I think the Diovan, Benicar and Atacand are peas in a pod...not much difference. They are all sartans (ARB's) and work the same way. None is a particularly strong drug anhd most people find they must add a diuretic. (I think the diuretic usually does far more than half the work.)
If he gave you enough ATACAND to get a decent trial, I'd take it and chart the numbers. However, if he gave you 7 pills or so, then it's not worth the trouble...stick them in the drawer for a time you run out of the DIOVAN.
Gee, I wonder why he pushes the Diovan so hard...is it possible Novartis paid for his last vacation?
