Brief Answer:
Both are same

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query.
Tekturna contains Aliskiren and used to treat hypertension. Tekturna is a brand name by Novartis, so the price is high. Instead you can take generic Aliskerin of same dose. There is no difference between the two and generic is cheaper than branded Tekturna.


Hope i answered your query. You can close discussion and rate the answer.
