Have recently moved to So. Korea, and apparently lisinopril, which I have been taking for several years for hypertension with good results, is not available here, so the doctor has prescribed norvasc. Is norvasc a reasonable equivalent?

lisinopril is an ace inhibitor and is cheaper to use according to many physicians where as Norvac works as a channel blocker making it as simple as I can they both do the same type of thing only the norvasc works in a more complicated way, given your circumstances where you are located Norvasc is probably a good comparason drug
