Hello to all,
 
Does anyone take Dynacirc for high blood pressure? My mom's been on it for over a year and all of a sudden her pharmacy told me the manufactuer has discontinued the drug due to poor sales. I was not given a warning about this prior and my mom will run out of this drug by Saturday. Now I'm scrambling to have her doctor prescribe something else. He has yet to call me back after leaving a message with his service.  I'm in total shock because there was good press coverage about this drug last year as being neuro protective.  My mom's blood pressure has been perfect for the last few months and now I don't know if there will be a breaking in period with whatever new drug her doctor will prescribe.
 
She's been on Lotrel (gave her bad cough), Norvasc (on it too long so it stopped working), Caduet (didn't work), Avapro (made her pressure too low). This was the best one for her and now I'm so mad. Does anyone have a medication they are really happy with?  Please share.
Thanks!

Update: I called the manufacturer to find out the facts. Turns out they were bought out by a bigger drug company so the transition period is taking longer then expected and production is delayed on a lot of their medications. I was told Dynacirc CR should be available by the end of Sept again. Horray! In the meantime you can tell your doctor to call them for samples which you can use while they make more. Samples are not for sale so they always have a supply read made for distribution. I took the last 2 bottles of my mom's pharmacy which were of lesser dosage than what she normally takes but combined they are good for 1 month. It really is scary to realize how this kind of problem can have big consequences. I had called over 5 pharmacies and they all thought the drug was discontinued so this will hurt their sales now because people have already switched over to other drugs. I just hope it doesn't really get discontinued from this. confused
