    Moving off Lotrel to Valsartan due to Shortage? Anyone on Valsartan?

    So apparently there's some kind of shortage of Amlodipine/Benezepril so my doctor switched me to Valsartan today. Is anyone on valsartan? how was it for you?

    Im a bit hesitant because Ive been on lotrel for 20+ years but have no choice right now.

    Thanks for your input!

    Better check with Dr. and Pharma. The family of drugs you are switching to has been recalled certain lots over 17 times this year 2019 by the FDA, stating may cause cancer. Unclean machines (washers and rubber gaskets) Google it yourself and you will see the name of the Mfg overseas. One story was the FDA arrived there for an inspection two days early and caught them shredding papers concerning improper cleaning. Check out Sun Pharma India searches. Those ACE inhibitors have a bad history for several years now.

    Here is a link to WEB MD for a report on the family of Valsartan. Need to read it yourself to get the facts straight.

    I have been off Losatran since Jan 2016.

    Thanks
