  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    I can understand your concern and would like to let you know that you must take all the medicines that are prescribed to you.
    You can definitely substitute them as per your budget.
    You can find the substitute on various websites like 1 mg etc.
    Also you need regular check up at least 1 per month.

    Hope this helps.
    Take care!!
