Question:
I am moving to Moscow and am currently taking Renitec, Xatral and Zocor. Are these drugs available in Moscow or do I need to bring an ample supply?
Max
Answer:
Dear Max, Thank you for your question. It is an excellent idea to check that your regular medications and dosages are available when you relocate to a foreign country. Also try and learn the generic (or universal) names of each medication, not the pharmaceutical names. For your information, the generic names of your medications are: Enalapril (Renitec) Xatral (Alfuzosin) Simvastatin (Zocor) These drugs are definitely available at our SOS clinic in Moscow, and we have a range of different dose strengths. I'm sure you are aware that if you are on these medications, you should be seen by a physician for blood pressure examinations and regular bloodwork to check your cholesterol levels and liver function. Best regards, and good luck with your move to Moscow!
