I usually take lotrel 5/20 but I just found out that it is now available in generic form. Has anybody try it? Let me know:)
TEVA got approval from the FDA to market amlodipine besylate/benazepril on May 18the but Novartis (Lotrel's patent holder) got an injunction against further shipments.
Two days ago on Monday, June 11, the US District Court for NJ lifted the injunction so shipments can continue.

Now Novartis plans to introduce it's own "generic."

So look for a price drop on the combo drug.
