An insurance company denied the use of this drug due to the fact that it will be discontinued soon. Like to know if this is true.
I would call the company that makes it:
800-321-1335 (toll free US only)
It seems funny that they would discontinue this product as it is goin generic in 2 years.
A generic Avapro will not be available until 2012, when the patent expires. Depending on whether other patents or lawsuits arise, however, the exclusivity period may extend beyond this time. Until a generic Avapro product is approved, do not purchase any so-called generic forms of the medication from companies you find on the Internet, because these drugs could be fake, substandard, and potentially dangerous.
