I wanted to have a generic that was comparable to Tarka, because of the cost. My doctor perscribed Amlodipine-Benaz 5/20mg caps. Is there a big difference between the two pills?
15 Sep 2011
Generic Tarka is available:Trandolapril/verapamil ER 2 mg/180 mg -- which has 2 mg of trandolapril and 180 mg of verapamil.
Tarka (trandolapril/verapamil hydrochloride ER) is a prescription medicine that has been licensed for controlling high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. It is not a cure for high blood pressure.
Benazepril hydrochloride and amlodipine besylate is a prescription medicine that has been licensed to control high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. However, benazepril-amlodipine is not a cure for high blood pressure.
Both pills are prescribed for the treatment/control of high blood pressure, however the side effects may differ. Please do seek medical advice also.
Take care, best wishes!
