Common Questions and Answers about Aids drugs manufacturers


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.
Avatar m tn Patient Assistance Programs – If unable to access care through the previously described routes, both the manufacturers of the peg-interferon (Schering-Plough) and ribavirin (Roche Pharmaceuticals) have patient assistance programs. If a person meets these programs’ eligibility requirements, they may be able to receive the medications at a low-cost or for free.
Avatar n tn in Claritin-D or Zyrtec-D is pseudoephedrine, which is an ingredient used to make methamphetamine (speed). Manufacturers of street meth were sending hordes of kids into drugstores to buy up these necessary ingredients for their final product. That's why these medications are now locked up behind the pharmacy counter and require a photo ID to purchase them.
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 m tn , the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which President Obama signed on March 23, 2010, authorized the Food and Drug Administration to approve generic versions of biologic drugs and grant biologics manufacturers 12 years of exclusive use before generics can be developed. Some else may have heard a rumor as to cost of new DAA meds. All new drugs will probably be rather expensive so either a trial or insurance will be needed to pay for the meds. Cheers!
Avatar n tn I read a different post of yours speaking about shoes. Yikes, I'm glad I don't have the severe skin problems from shoes! But, have you tried to find work shoes that don't have rubber soles? I still avoid rubber like the plague, because it will burn my skin, too, and being around products made from rubber will make me nauseous and cause me to have an asthma attack from all the off-gassing.
Avatar f tn None of us will usually know if the brand name works better if we take older drugs because the docs usually just put us on the cheaper ones and insurance companies make it a lot more expensive to use brand names, but consensus on this site over the years has been that brand name drugs work better. Another problem is that generics manufacturers are not consistent, while brand name manufacturers usually are -- but only usually, as any observer of the Tylenol saga can attest to.
Avatar n tn Usually the T4 meds are pretty darn inexpensive from what I understand so it seems like that should be something that can be overcome reasonably. I also think the manufacturers also sometimes have financial hardship programs for reduced cost medicines so you may want to check that out as well. Maybe churches may also have some help I don't know. But worth a try.
Avatar m tn Insomnia is terrible. And definitely can leave you fatigued. Things that help me with it are physical activity on a regular basis during the day, good sleep habits like a regular schedule of going to bed, white noise like a fan, a cool and dark room, not eating or drinking too much before bed. Sleep aids are helpful short term for some but I've always tried to stay away from that. So, your doctor prescribed you something. Have you ever considered melatonin?
Avatar f tn If you're on a generic, yes, many people do find that generics are often less effective than brand names and some generic manufacturers are better than others. Others don't notice these things. Generics are not identical to brand name drugs, they are similar enough to work pretty much the same but our bodies differ and might not absorb the generic as well.
148588 tn?1465778809 While recent steep increases in the price of prescription drugs after their production rights were acquired by new manufacturers were met with howls of outrage, critics say that reverse settlements have drawn little scrutiny. Regulators and courts are struggling to figure out when the agreements cross the murky legal line laid down by the U.S. Supreme Court two years ago.
Avatar f tn The blame is being spread throughout the industry and includes items like the poor quality of the raw materials needed to manufacture the drugs, tough economic times leading some manufacturers to delay investing in their products, the FDA's risk-averse approach to new drug approvals, leaner inventories, stockpiling by hospitals and other dispensers of these hard-to-get drugs, and discontinuance of older products as their profitability plummets.
Avatar m tn Now, there are recommended dosages from the manufacturers of drugs, and ranges for those recommendations. The standard recommendation for Lexapro when I was on it was 10mg for depression and 20mg for anxiety, but for some, 5mg is plenty and for others 30 is just right. Metabolism is the real key here.
Avatar n tn t considered safe or effective for any of the health claims manufacturers make. Silver has no known purpose in the body. Nor is it an essential mineral, as some sellers of silver products claim. Colloidal silver products are made of tiny silver particles suspended in a liquid — the same type of precious metal used in jewelry, dental fillings, silverware and other consumer goods. Colloidal silver products are usually marketed as dietary supplements that are taken by mouth.
138239 tn?1239924924 When you look at her hearing chart graph it looks like someone took a bite out of a cookie, that's the way the audiologist explained it, she also called it a difficult loss. On the graph she starts out normal then goes down, down down, then goes up, up up.
Avatar n tn // ), the author said one hypothesis which mentioned about the "occult infection". Some people may have very low level hiv DNA in their Tcells or PBMC.Both antibody or PCR cannot test them out. i don't know if it is true ,just want to ask for some pro advices, like from Teak etc.
Avatar m tn Though it is a good news but the cure is not near. It is still to take more than a decade or longer. None of the trials are highly effective and the drugs seroconverting rates are 10-20% and that can't be said as cure. Things are not going to reach market sooner that's for very sure.
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 m tn I recently had sexual relations with a prostitute in Thailand, condom was used, no kissing or oral was involved, however there was blood found on the sheets afterwards, i have been checked and been given the all clear but am on anti viral drugs to be sure (combin 300) What are the the chances that this can be transferred to another partner with such a low chance of contracting the virus? Is there a a possibility that this could happen.
Avatar f tn Some studies show that manufacturers have falsely represented the accuracy of home test kits. One test kit cited in the warning was the EZ Medtest HIV Type I and Type II Home Test Kit, which was unable to consistently detect HIV antibodies in HIV-positive blood samples. Companies that have been cited for illegal production and distribution of HIV home test kits include: Akers Laboratories; Chembio Diagnostic Systems, Inc; Pan Probe Biotech, Inc; and Sovo Tec Diagnostics, Inc.
Avatar n tn I have one partner who has antibodies since before we met, I do not use drugs, or work in the medicle field, have not been exposed to blood, have not had sex with anyone other than my partner and no surgeries. How else could I have gotten it?
Avatar m tn Some guys sued the condom manufacturers in Nigeria (Gold Circle) for contracting HIV whilst using the condom. One guy insisted that he used it correctly all the time but still contracted the virus. I am really scared that the same may happen to me. Please comment.
480448 tn?1426948538 Zolpidem is commonly found in both generic and name-brand sleep aids. Ambien and Ambien CR are probably the most recognizable prescriptions that contain zolpidem, but it is also found in Zolpimist and Edluar, according to the FDA's statement. Here is some of the key information to have emerged regarding the FDA's decision.
Avatar f tn Hi,thanks for the response. I have multiple problems right now and that is one I do not want to address at the moment. I actually can't get more than 5 hours sleep with any drug, but that is much more than without!!! Your email helps me put that on the back burner until I find out what else is going with me. Plus, I go to pain management and have an injection about once a year for my bad back. Have you tried that?
222369 tn?1274474635 I've seen a lot of people lately taking drugs to get off drugs. It runs the gambit from simple muscle relaxers and anti-seizure medications such as Neurontin, to much more troubling medications such as Z-drugs (Ambien and Lunesta), benzos, and even marijuana or alcohol. It's a very understandable thought process that makes us seek anything that will help us get through the perceived horrors of withdrawal.
Avatar m tn the CURRENT guideline, set by the fda, cdc, and the manufacturers of the test, is 3 months post exposure for a conclusive result. this guideline has been in place since 2004. the only ppl who might need to test longer are those with a SEVERELY COMPROMISED immune system. this would include ppl on chemotherapy, taking anti-rejection drugs, and CHRONIC, LONG TERM iv drug users. EVERYONE ELSE...3 MONTHS ! ! ! ! !
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.
