Pharmacy Blunder

It occurred to me the other day, much to my chagrin, that Hyzaar and Cozaar are the same medication, except that Hyzaar includes hydrochlorothiazide in it. I know the names are similar, but generally hctz combo products have the term '-zide' or '-etic' or 'plus', never a change the start of the word.

Upon discovering this tidbit of pharmaceutical knowledge I exclaimed it aloud to my coworkers in the dispensary. I'll never hear the end of it...

Yes, I'm aware that this is the nerdiest story ever, but even if one person understands where I'm coming from, and I'm looking at you, Brendawg... then my job is done.

.... doggonit! your right!.... case in point the new "Altace plus" 10mg/12.5mg.... does that shit come in any other strengths, because I sure as hell haven't seen it.

My newest favorite is the new "Caduet" ...CA... duet...haha... get it? Damn those incorporated bastards are clever!
