new warnings about combining Tekturna (aliskiren) with certain blood pressure meds (enalapril, losartan, etc)

You'll see new warnings about combining Tekturna (aliskiren) with certain blood pressure meds (enalapril, losartan, etc).

Many patients with high blood pressure end up taking two or three antihypertensive meds to reach blood pressure goals.
