A: Hogil also manufactures and distributes Teldrin HBP, the first and only SKU marketed to allergy sufferers with high blood pressure.
David Trager, who earlier this year became president of Hogil Pharmaceutical Co., notes that the firm's recently reformulated, decongestant-free Teldrin HBP brand will appeal not only to a wide group of allergy sufferers but, more importantly, to those who endure high blood pressure.
