Plavix cost at walmart

Common Questions and Answers about Plavix cost at walmart


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 f tn The small break time for no plavix may be not have any significance to prevent scarring, return to plavix after the surgery at the optimum time would continue the interaction of the medication and reduce the risk to a very slight probability.
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.
315318 tn?1353251800 Well, plavix is coming off patent next year so the cost should come down substantially. In my case though, I got a DES placed in my LAD in December 2009. My cardio said, I am not responsive to Plavix, but not to worry. Start taking this new related medication called Effient. Effient, however, comes with greater chance of bleeding and it is expensive.
Avatar n tn So, I think there are 2 issues here. 1. DO NOT stop your Plavix without talking to the Cardiologist who placed your stents. With all of our DES I honestly would be very weary of stopping it. We now recommend patient's be on Plavix for at least one year after there most recent DES and with all of your stents being DES I would definitely consider lifelong Plavix for you. However, this can be difficult when patients also have atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter like yourself.
Avatar f tn Lisinipril is $4/month and $10 for 90 days at WalMart and many other pharmacies that have the $4 precription plan. You pay out of pocket. Simvastatin isn't on that list, but lovastatin and pravastatin are, if your doctor feels like you could try substituting one of those. Metoprolol isn't on the $4/month plan, but atenolol is. Again, maybe your doctor would be okay with changing you from metoprolol to atenolol. It's worth talking to the doc about.
649848 tn?1534633700 As consumers, we welcome Walmart's (WMT) low prices. But here's the thing about these low prices -- they're doing the U.S. more harm than good. A new research report has found that low prices have actually caused unemployment to rise, and dealt a massive blow to the manufacturing sector. Look no further than the 7 million manufacturing jobs the U.S. lost from 1980 to 2011, according to a recent research report from Demos.
Avatar f tn Clomid is can even get the generic for I think it's $9 at Walmart. He must be talking about monitoring, IUIs, etc. too for it to add up to $1600. It does sound like a lot, though.
612551 tn?1450022175 I use to take Plavix (Clopidogrel as clopidogrel hydrogen sulfate). It likes the blood thinner as you described above. No need blood test and it won't cause excessive bleeding. It has been approved in Australia for a while. It comes with clopidogrel 75mg 28 tablets in a box. Cost AUD $82.79 for no medicare patient. I have been diagnosed TIA. I also have a history of low platelets (ITP) so I can't take Warfarin nor Aspirin. The neurologist prescribed this Plavix for me.
Avatar m tn I was told with Effient I wouldnt have to stay on it for life like the Plavix. I was looking at the risks and fatal bleed charts and it increases the risk the longer I am on it. My liver enzymes are slightly elevated so I would like to remove anymore stress on my liver if its not needed. Also the surgeon wont touch my hernia surgery until I can stop taking it. Do you know when you can stop taking it or is it something you just have to keep taking?
Avatar n tn I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier as I've only just come online, for a few minutes. Your dog seems fine, but I would still have a word with your vet about this, and ask for advice. You could do that by telephone. I don't know Plavix at all. But it might be wise to find out from the vet in case this drug could cause any kidney problems or likewise, which you might not be able to notice initially.
Avatar f tn They have them under 200 at walmart,target and I think I seen one or two under 200 at babies r us.... Hope that helped......
Avatar f tn My husband is a department manager at Walmart and every other person who walks through those doors are jerk faces! Its funny cause everyone knows him and some people but not a whole.lot, anyway when they start offending me (the people who work there I mean) I always say "You know Andrew and sporting goods? That's my husband :) )) lol they are always like "Ohh OK..." then you have those shoppers who think freedom of speech means to talk trash. Ugh!
798555 tn?1292787551 Anyone use this brand? Since its only $10 at walmart, I wonder about accuracy. Test strips are more affordable too than the others..
Avatar f tn I take the Similac /w DHA. They used to sell them at Walmart now I can only find them at Walgreens. They are about $12.00 after you take the coupon out of the box, lol.
Avatar f tn I got mine done at 19 weeks. The photographer was awesome, she posed me to emphasize my belly :) i went to portrait innovations . It cost me 375$ for 30 different frames, a canvas, 4 hardcover books of the pictures, a Calendar that was baby themed, and specialized shots that she layered like a collage. I also got 6 sets of 5x8 of each pic to send to family and a free disk of all 176 pics i took in total. The more frames you want the more it cost, the less frames the less you spend.
Avatar f tn It SHOULD be in the vitamin section at wal mart....if not, Walgreens has it for about 6 to 8 bucks. Health food stores carry it as well! Good luck!
Avatar m tn The FDA is actively looking at data on other PPIs, but at this time the FDA is not warning patients to avoid taking Plavix along with other PPIs. It seems there is so much misinformation, changing opinions, etc. does not bode well for confidence in the medication. I wouldn't want a mega dose of anti-platelet meds. It took hours to stop bleeding from a dentist visit, and I'm on a baby aspirin. The risk of bleeding internally (bowel, stomach, etc.
Avatar f tn Aspirin) In CAPRIE, gastrointestinal hemorrhage occurred at a rate of 2.0% in those taking Plavix vs. 2.7% in those taking aspirin; bleeding requiring hospitalization occurred in 0.7% and 1.1%, respectively. The incidence of intracranial hemorrhage was 0.4% for Plavix compared to 0.5% for aspirin. Other bleeding events that were reported more frequently in the Plavix group were epistaxis and hematoma.
255163 tn?1376869746 After my bypass in July I was on plavix for a month but then my doc took me off. However, in Nov. I had to have a stent put in and my doc put me on plavix again as well as up my asperin dose to a full. He told me he wanted me on the plavix for at least a year. Come May I'll be able to lower the asperin dose and next Nov. I'll be off the plavix. It's ashame your doc's can't communicate with each other. Maybe you could have them contact each other.
Avatar f tn I saw these at walmart
Avatar m tn I had a heartattack and had 2 have 2 more stents implanted. the last 2 stents were put in 3 yrs ago.. My cardioligist does not reccomend me coming off Plavix at all..
Avatar m tn Aspirin and Plavix (dual therapy) is recommended up to about a year after a stent(s) implant to help prevent any clots from forming at the site of the implant. Circumstances may exist that continued plavix medication may be prescribed for longer periods of time. Structual collapse of a stent would indicate an improper size or defect. I discontinued plavix after year, and I have never heard of plavix associated with a collapsed stent! There may be a misunderstanding.
Avatar n tn Two friends of mine are studying to be Pharmacists and they have been told for example that Plavix has very little effect, or none at all, on the female Gender. Nobody knows why.
