Discussions that mention norvasc

[QUOTE=red-rider;3473593]I have been on Diovan for 4yrs and it was causing me awful heartburn.
Today the doc gave me samples of Benicar to try. Imagine my amazement
when I read on the bottle "Product of Japan":eek:
I had no clue. I know to be careful at the dollar store for OTC drugs that are made in India and Canada and China~but Benicar is an expensive prescription drug for HBP and I thought it would be made in the USA.
China is putting lead in everything from pet food to toys to candy.
What about Japan~can we trust them with our very health?
this has me more than concerned. Any Benicar users here?
what do ya think?
thanks~RR

I have taken Benicar 40mg alone and am currently taking Azor 5/40mg which is a combination of Norvasc and Benicar. I don't really have a concern about it being from Japan. I drive a Honda too.;)
