612551 tn?1450022175 Anyone have details on a new anticoagulant that is now being used in Europe and Canada that has none of the bad side-effects of Warfarin and Coumadin? Just a few minutes ago the regular (on often) Fox New doctor (cardiologist, Dr. Rosenfeld) said the new drug does not require any blood tests (protime) and does not have the bleeding problems of Warfarin. He said it is being evaluated by the US FDA. Sounds like good news to me, and AFig sufferer.
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 m tn My insurance is not paying for it and its cost is 280.00 where I live. The other ER Doctor sent a Prescription for Plavix which is covered. Is this a good choice? He was referred to an Internist and Urologist for prompt treatment. He is 47 and has had irregular heart beats incidents.
Avatar m tn ” Instead of telling you about Nattokinase (a natural and healthy blood clot dissolver derived from a Japanese food, natto) your doctor probably told you about Plavix. Plavix is one of the top-selling drugs in the world. It earns more than a billion dollars a year for Bristol-Myers. Your doctor regularly sees ads by this pharmaceutical giant and is visited by sales reps who tout the supposed benefits of Plavix. Plavix is also advertised on television.
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 I need back surgery and the surgeon wants me off Plavix 10-14 days..After informing my Cardiologist, he said okay, in fact he said it has been 4 years with no problems, so just stay off the Plavix permanently...After reading so many horror stories, I am concerned...I have been on Plavix for 4 years along with an 81 Mg aspirin. I think I will continue the aspirin...but this is day 3 and no problems thus far..
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 I had an MI in '05, and had a RCA stent placed. I was on plavix apox. 4 yrs because of family hx and my paranoia of another MI. I recently have been experiencing tingling and numbness in my hands upon awaking and have noticed small spider veins appearing on my thighs. I am a nurse on a MedSurg unit. I am concerned that my stent is becoming occulded. My doctor took me off plavix Jan'10 and kept me on 325 Aspirin.
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.
315318 tn?1353251800 I will talk to my cardiologist about the point you make about my INR number. On the other hand, two months ago, I had to spend four days in a hospital after a nose-bleed event. The bleeding kept going , on and off, for more than 12 hours and made the doctors suspect gastrointestinal bleeding. In the hospital they discontinued both aspirin and effient for 2-4 days. I guess, I must be lucky because the discontinuance did not lead to any thrombosis.
Avatar f tn I don't have cancer in bladder or kidneys it's plavix and aspirin that's caused blood in urine
Avatar f tn The whole idea of plavix is to make platelets less active and a patient is now generally on this medication for a number of years. My first stent in 2007 required plavix for 1 year. My new stents in Sept 09 require plavix for 2-3 years minimum. They seem to now believe the longer you are on plavix the better, to prevent clogging of stents. They should be taking blood tests to make sure her clotting factor is as required. I assume she is on aspirin daily also?
Avatar f tn m betting that the doctor is believing the danger of the anti-clotting properties of Plavix trump the danger of the stent clogging up. If I were offered the option, I would go with withdrawing the Plavix in a New York Minute. As an explanation, I was taking Plavix after stent work when I experienced a total bowel obstruction, and had to have numerous transfusions as as my blood wouldn't clot. Surgery and Plavix just don't mix.
Avatar f tn t want to go back for fear of being labelled a hypochondriac, but the pain is very real and it occurred to me this morning that I could possibly have a collapsed stent. I stopped taking plavix 7 months ago because the cost is prohibitive. The doctor didn't seem concerned about that, and not knowing that I needed to take the aspirin forever, I stopped taking that too, about 4 months ago. What should I be doing. I have started taking the aspirin again, three days ago.
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 n tn Been on Plavix for 6 years for 5 DES stents. Very recent, I had an event monitor for 3 years of ongoing, sporadic irregular heart beats that causes 5-8 seconds of dizziness/lightheadedness. Finally caught it on the event Monitor. Doctor said monitor showed Atrial flutter in the upper chambers of heart. Told me to get off the Plavix and she would RX Pradexa which is like coumadin.(never been on coumadin or heparin) I am 74 years old and also take Nexium, Crestor, Avalide 150/12.
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 ) 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.
161427 tn?1229911282 Every time my mother-in-law is admitted to the hospital for one of these procedures she is taken off Plavix and must wait a few days for it to leave her body before they can go ahead, to reduce the possibility of excessive bleeding. This is the only major thing to change for her while she is waiting for the procedure. She stays on all her other meds, including pain meds.
