A weekly series identifying prescription drugs manufactured in America and their prices.
Cardura XL (doxazosin mesylate extended release tablets), a product marketed by drug giant Pfizer, is used to treat signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, or an increase in prostate size. Cardura XL is manufactured in the U.S., but available at a much lower price in foreign pharmacies. At a Rite-Aid in New York City, 30 pills (4 mg) costs $94. The lowest price from a PharmacyChecker.com approved pharmacy is $26. That’s a 72% savings or $816 over one year.Tagged with: American Made Prescriptions Are Cheaper Abroad, Cardura XL, prostatic hyperplasia
