Discussions that mention nifedipine

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Rob,

I also think that the lisinopril is the stronger, more effective drug...IF IT DOESN'T CAUSE COUGHING.
The ONLY reason to prefer the Benicar is if you cough from an ACE.

There's been some disturbing possible news about the incidence of heart attacks among ARB users so that's another vote in favor of the lisinopril.

And last but not least, Benicar is a LOT more expensive than generic lisinopril.

Incidentally, the Procardia is available as generic nifedipine which is generic and a fraction of the cost...funny how some doctors like the expensive version??? You'd almost think there was something in it for THEM ;) .
