Common Questions and Answers about Cost of androgel in canada


Avatar n tn How much does a syringe of 1% androgel cost at the pharmacy? Does it vary from one pharmact to another?
689860 tn?1238718032 I've been using Androgel for 3 years and have done well with it. My guess is that the doctor who ordered your hormone tests would also write the prescription. I got my test and prescription from my regular family doctor. Androgel is expensive ($120 a month here in Canada), but my private health plan covers it, which is great. The province where I live will only pay for the injections, not the gel. The gel will be generic within a few years, so the price will go down.
Avatar m tn 1) Does it cost money in canada to meet with a counsellor? (don't really want to go to the meetings) Kind of looking for a step by step program type thing to keep me clean? 2)Can you keep it anonymous and not release your name?
Avatar f tn That is insane, in Canada I had a csection, was in the hospital for 4 days and the only thing I paid for was my 14 dollar constipation meds.
Avatar f tn I would NOT quit Androgel. I started using Androgel because of depression, hair loss, shaving every 3 days (which is good!), atrophying of all muscles and my bone density dropped. I started Androgel 1.62% and everything improved greatly Good luck and do this only with doctors approval.
Avatar m tn Temperature storage of Androgel.... Yikes, I have left the dispensor bottle of Androgel in the car for a period of 2-3 hrs under colder temperatures and on several occassions by accident. Does this affect the useful\effectiveness of the Testosterone substance ? ?
Avatar f tn I recently googled Androgel and anxiety and did come across quite a few people who have had cases of anxiety with Androgel. Could this be the cause? We think possibly. We recently stopped the pristyq (about 2 weeks ago) and just went to the endocronologist today. First time seeing a specialist. She had him stop the Androgel, although she has not heard of it causing anxiety. She is having him do blood work in 2 weeks. We are at our wits end-any ideas???? Could this all be from Low T?
Avatar n tn Hi. You don't say which country you live in, which will make a difference. In the UK where I live we have the National Health Service. We all pay towards this service through taxes so that seeing a doctor is "free" at point of contact. The doctor can then refer a patient to a specialist like a dermatologist at no extra cost, but waiting times can be very long.
Avatar f tn I made an appointment with him for a second opinion and then treated in one of the Boceprevir trials. There are other new drugs in the pipeline currently in trials that you could speak with him about at your appointment. In the meantime do a search at using "Hepatitis C and Michigan". See what comes up then you can start your homework prior to your appointment. Best of luck!
Avatar m tn t notice as long as i keep exercising ---if your doses of androgel are high you may notice a bit of fatigue and and in the sexual dept but nothing severe .
Avatar n tn I have been purchasing his medications for him on line though a pharmacy in Canada costing an extreme amount of money for his Synthroid. I am on a limited income and I cannot afford it anymore. My daughter in law is very sick too. She had thyroid cancer, stage three and is in desperate need to see a physician for her follow ups. She is supposed to get scanned twice a year since her surgery and has not been scanned once. She simply cannot afford it.
Avatar f tn My insurance charges $150 a month. Some insurance charge a percentage of the cost of the drugs. That is what we are fighting against in NC.
Avatar f tn Costs appear to vary widely from state to state, country to country. I live in Canada and have no clue what these tests cost. ( I've always thought this information should be available to Canadians so that people don't take universal health care for granted, because obviously it isn't 'free.'). I do know that generally, neurologists earn more, and charge more, in the U.S. than they do in Canada.
862235 tn?1336060295 I have a plan were I pay up front and am reimbursed. The cost for one month Incivek in Canada $14000 + 2000$ for the Pegasus. Now I need to scramble to find the finances to cover the cost and then hope the turn-around time with the insurance is under a month or I'll be totally screwed next month. Maybe she should have chosen the Victrelis. The cost would have been split over more weeks that way. Beware.
Avatar f tn still looking for possible IL28B testing and any of the latest in Canada, Has anyone filed in Ontario for transfusion compensat claim, just wondering about questions and procedure of the health long term care Hep C assist program.
Avatar m tn After brachytherapy for my cancer, I am in remission, and after 2+ years resumed taking androgel. I am on androgel again, and have high Testosterone levels (about 1000), but my libido has never recovered. I also have had hypothyroidism, but have been taking synthroid for it for many years with no adverse impact on my libido. Does anyone have a suggestion for what to do?
Avatar m tn ) The cost to us is in the medication. Even at that, for alot of us, our work insurance covers a good chunk of it and then you can apply to Trillium for coverage above and beyond which may or may not make a difference at all depending on your genotype and your income and takes a helluva long time to get approved. I don't know how I would have managed this in the U.S. I see an Endocrinologist and a Hepatologist...and a Psychiatrist for that matter in relation to my treatment.
Avatar m tn Doctor believes that I may have a herniated disc. This of course would not be assiciated with the use of Androgel but I have stopped using it for seven days now. The less things my liver has to deal with right now the better.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have Hashimoto's and I've been taking levothyroxine or Synthroid 75mcg for several years. My most recent lab work showed my TSH at 2.64. For several months I have had a lot of mood problems really bordering on being depressed a lot. I also have been on Androgel 1.62% for low T, 2 pumps/day for several years. I'm trying to figure out if my mood issues could be related to my Thyroid and or the androgel.
335728 tn?1331414412 Then for them to send out a nickel is pure idiocy in my mind. They could have had something made in the form of a real nickel in paper and got their point across. How many are realistically going to send in a check with the nickel when the cost to mail such an item through Canada Post will cost an arm and a leg? Yes I have a history of strife with the MS Society and they have yet again proven their money wasting habits are a serious problem.
Avatar f tn and perhaps a future option for me, but...Can anyone tell me the approx cost to go to one of these MS Specialists in the States??? Is there a LONG waiting list? Also, where are some of these places located? (I live directly across from Michigan in Canada) Thanks, everyone!
