Bulletin 59: Perindopril Arginine
This bulletin focuses on different perindopril formulations (salts) which are not directly equivalent. It provides the rationale for new patients to be commenced on generic perindopril erbumine, also known as tert-butylamine. Current patients can be considered for a switch from Coversyl® Arginine (perindopril arginine) to perindopril erbumine. Options for dose conversion in support of the switch, potential switch savings and information on perindopril adverse effects are also provided.
