Toprol has been around a long time and now we have a new drug with being combined with a low dose diuretic medication. There are many blood pressure drugs on the market and Astra-Zeneca appears to be keeping the drug affordable although there are some that are even less.
The drug maker said it will charge $18.33 per month when a 90-day supply of the combination drug is ordered with a valid prescription, whether or not the patient has insurance. Retail drug stores also will stock the combination medication.
AstraZeneca said the drug may not be recommended for people with a significantly slow heart rate, uncontrolled heart failure, abnormal heart rhythm or allergies to the drug's ingredients.
