148588 tn?1465778809 At $1,000-per-pill, Sovaldi is priced 1,100% more than Gilead’s most expensive AIDS drug, Stribild, its four-in-one AIDS drug combination, which was priced at $80 per pill a year ago when it came to market,” said Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “At that time, Stribild’s price was 35% more than Atripla, the company’s best selling combination HIV/AIDS treatment, and made Stribild the highest priced first-line combination AIDS therapy.
Avatar f tn Can anyone give me a ballpark of the cost for the suppressant drugs after a transplant. Just want to get an idea, know no one can give me exacts but any info would help. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Well, it seems like there is no other cause than genes to this (probably), but since I really dont like being this underweight, are there any drugs that could help me gain weight (in other words eat more/ slow metabolism). Like some steroids or something? Again, I have tried the "eat more" thing, but it doesnt seem to work very well. At first I do gain weight, but I get pretty bad diarrhea ETC. from eating too much.
Avatar n tn There ARE reputable on-line pharmacies, but there are WAY more that should be avoided at all cost. Knowing the difference requires a great deal of research and referrals from your doctor and/or pharmacist. If your doctor has perscribed alprazolam for you, the generic form is quite inexpensive and getting your script filled at your local pharmacy will guarantee that you are getting medication that is FDA approved.
Avatar m tn indian producers of generics are the biggest producers of drugs in the world and almost all drugs are made there due to less cost....even the brand ones you buy in europe and US at higher cost.
Avatar n tn Nobody should accept the lies told by big pharma, generic drugs are just as effective as name brand drugs. good luck http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-04/eaft-lgd040816.
Avatar f tn I’m not sure we have a picture of cost structure for the PI drugs Telaprevir or Boceprevir yet; although industry analysts are projecting an additional $20,000 if memory serves.
408795 tn?1324935675 Generic Hep C Drugs as Effective as Pricey Ones Inexpensive antivirals could be a game-changer in many countries, researchers say WebMD News from HealthDay By Robert Preidt HealthDay Reporter SATURDAY, April 16, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Low-cost generic antiviral drugs are as effective and safe as more expensive brand-name drugs in treating people with hepatitis C, researchers report.
1218873 tn?1300091216 Over here in the UK, we generally don't know what the cost of tests and drugs are, as they are covered by the NHS. But over the past 12 months I have started to learn a bit of what thing cost, and it appears that even if you go private they are considerabley cheaper than in the US which to me dosen't seem quite right.
Avatar n tn umm in the usa without insurance, n im chronic.
Avatar m tn Also, any idea how much tela will cost.
Avatar f tn The cost of a feline leukemia and feline Aids test combination at my clinic is $30.00, but there are literally dozens of causes of feline weight loss that have nothing to do with feline Aids. Weight loss can be caused by congenital problems that may not appear until the cat is full grown, such as heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease and more. Almost any infectious disease can cause weight loss; even a urinary tract infection or upper respiratory infection.
475555 tn?1469304339 The cost of research and development drives up the cost of drugs, but so does profit. This analysis seems so optimistic when compared to the Wholesale Acquisition Costs of sofosbuvir (Sovaldi) at $84,000 and simeprevir (Olysio) at $66,360. Although I hope that profit does not interfere with the very real chance that hepatitis C could be eradicated, I alternate between being skeptical and cautiously optimistic.
Avatar m tn Is you friend in the US? Is that what her doctor has recommended? Per the AASLD (American Asociation for the Study of Liver Diseases) the current recommendations for GT 4 are EPCLUSA for 12 weeks, Viekira Pak with ribavirin for 12 weeks, and ZEPATIER for 12 weeks are the preferred treatments for GT 4. Is she under the care of a doctor? Has she tried to obtain medicine through insurance? That really is the first way she should go instead of getting the incorrect treatment from India.
Avatar f tn I can get a prescription from the vet cost £10 to buy these on line at half the cost, will the drugs be legit, there are lots of sites selling and all need prescription to supply but could they be dodgy?
1754908 tn?1312400362 I have problems with prednisone as well. I stopped taking all RA drugs two years ago but try to get by with over the counter meds. I recently discovered Norco 10/325 and it really helps although it is a narcotic. My question is this. How much damage could I do taking only one pill (Norco) per day. Just one pill really helps me. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Hi, Ed. If your wife is working, and needs hearing aids for keeping her job, or securing a promotion, or, if her hearing loss is a really big factor in her not being able to find a job, your local (part of your state) Vocational Rehabilitation office may be able to help with securing hearing aids. Different states have different eligibility criteria.

Avatar n tn Mild inflammation can be addressed with pain relievers or anti-inflammatory drugs; transient bowel issues may be treated with digestive aids. However other causes, such as pancreatitis, broken ribs, collapsed lungs and aortic aneurysms, are very serious and require immediate attention. It is always best to consult a medical provider to get an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan, especially if the pain is severe or persistent.
1722607 tn?1335747858 I contacted my insurance company today to ask about the price of the meds for triple treatment. A 3 month supply of interferon, ribavirin, & Victrelis would cost $180.00 (so about $60 a month) I thought it was going to be a lot higher. But I forgot to ask about "rescue drugs". Not sure how that works and how much that would be. Any one have an idea?
Avatar m tn The digital hearing aids would be better than your old hearing aid. There are more best manufacturers such as Phonak, Starkey, Oticon, Widex and so on. So according to the guidance of your audiologist you can select hearing aids for better hearing.
