Propranolol & Nadolol are the same type of drug, but they are the generic for DIFFERENT Brand name drugs. Check with your physician. Propranolol is the generic that is used for Inderal. I used this drug years ago for migrane control. Then after about 18 years I was switched to Nadolol which is the generic for Corgard. My cost for Nadolol took the same kind of price hike that you are mentioning. Both of these GENERIC drugs have soared in price in the last six months. They both work well for me. Considering Propanolol and Nadolol are both generics the prices being charged are nothing less than Criminal. Both the middleman and insurance companies may be taking advantage of the public. But, make no mistake the drug companies are charging exorbitant prices for popular generic drugs now. If more people complained, these drugs could qualify for the same type of class action lawsuit that resulted in the Synthroid case.
In that case just as with Propranolo & Nadolol they charged the same for brand name and generic.Generic drugs are exactly that generic, and should cost much less. Otherwise just give us the higher quality brand name! I have run into the same problem this year. I can't find Nadolol cheaper anywhere.
