This is Dr. Bonilla, experienced in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care.

I understand your concerns. Jalyn is a combined medication. You can get the generic version of the two components in different pills with the same effect. You can ask you PCP to prescribed and the cost will be cheaper than Jalyn.
