A product like Prexum Plus is an affordable alternative for the control of hypertension and Lipitor 5 to 10mg is not too expensive. A state clinic can provide you with these meds if you have consulted a specialist. Ask your clinic if they can make an appointment with a specialist, in order to have an evaluation done.
