Medications used in HCM

Important program for those taking Toprol XL (metroprolol succcinate

Due to several recalls related to generic versions Toprol XL  AstraZeneca is offering a unique program.  This mail in program offers Torprol-XL for as little as $15.00 for a 30 day supply  or $30.00 for a 90 day supply.   This is the "name brand" not a generic.   Some HCM specialist have strong opinions on the use of generics and feel that name brand Toprol-XL is the optimal for most patients.     This program allows you access to the name brand drug at a very reasonable price.  4 doses are available - 25mg, 50mg, 100mg, 200mg
