I know that it is too expensive and that there are far cheaper similar drugs available.
SULAR is the calcium channel blocker nisoldipine, it is similar to nifedipine which costs a fraction of what SULAR does.
Look for these side effects:
dizziness or lightheadedness
flushing (feeling of warmth)
but especilly, SWELLING of the arms or legs (ankles)
The maker, FIRST HORIZON, claims HUGE BP drops compared to other drugs...but at over $2 a pill it should do card tricks.:D
If it works as well as claimed there should be no need for the HYZAAR, a pretty weak combo drug that also costs too much. Just hydrochlorothiazide plus the nisoldipine (SULAR) should be all you need.
If that combo works well, then you are a classic salt sensitive hypertensive.
P.S. Whenever I see the word SULAR, my mind sees it as SULAR THE MAGNIFICENT and it's a mid-east warrior in the 10th century on a white horse wearing gold and silk robes waving a curved scimitar over his head. :jester:
