Discussions that mention clonidine

High & Low Blood Pressure board

in my insurance plan, Diovan has become very expensive for some reason that is unknown to me.

I am currently taking

Diovan 160mg daily
HCTZ 50 mg daily
Metoprolol Tartrate 100mg twice daily
Clonidine .1 mg 3x daily

Is there a way, or does anyone have a suggestion how I might replace Diovan in the regimen with a generic drug, or more of the others?
