rebetol

29837 tn?1414538248 Ribavirin has been around since about 1997-1998, I was in the tail end of the clinical trials for Ribavirin (Rebetol) beginning in 1997 and ending the trial when it was FDA approved in 1998. That was TX #1 for me. At that time, there was never any mention of the fat thing. Nor was the fat thing mentioned for my next 3-4 TX's. I've only heard of the fat thing come up during the course of like the last 6 yrs.
Avatar f tn My understanding is the active ingredient of each is the same, but just a different brand name by different manufacturer. I recall some are available in different doses, so if you needed to do a dose reduction this could be an advantage.

Avatar f tn Hi Vann. Not sure. If your pharmacy doesn't have an answer, you may have to contact the manufacturer. I just read my papers on Ribasphere and it only says: Store this medicine at room temperature between 68 to 77 degrees, away from heat or light. Brief storage between 59 and 86 degrees is permitted. But it doesn't say what "brief" means to them. Best to you in the outcome.
Avatar n tn I am a Customer Service Mgr. for a international security manufacturer and have to listen to disgruntled customers on a daily basis. The stress almost killed me a few months ago when I went off on my boss over some little petty issue. I was written up and missed the last quarter and this first quarter bonuses for that. NOW I know it was a reaction to my then unknown disease and have learned my lesson about when to keep my big mouth shut.

Avatar n tn Thanks for the comforting words but I live in the Western NY area and so far of those I have talked with don't take my HMO or aren't taking new patients. I get my Peg-interferon and Rebetol through the manufacturer for free due to meeting their criteria and because of not having Prescription coverage. You are right about not taking that kind of disrespect from a Dr. that won't show me respect for what I'm going through. I will just have to keep trying to find another Dr.
Avatar n tn Here is the warning for the drug, your drug bottle should have a warning label also. CONTRAINDICATIONS AND WARNINGS Combination REBETOL/INTRON A therapy is contraindicated in women who are pregnant and in the male partners of women who are pregnant. Extreme care must be taken to avoid pregnancy during therapy and for 6 months after completion of treatment in female patients, and in female partners of male patients who are taking combination REBETOL/INTRON A therapy.
158241 tn?1237723123 I've written this before that Schering-Plough is a huge pharma company with deep pockets and a lot to lose because they also manufacturer Peg-Intron. It's been uncanny how quiet Schering has been about their trial. It was over a year ago that I was asked to join the trial, so maybe we will see some information come out of the Barcelona meeting.
Avatar f tn The usual course of pegylated interferon (PegIntron or Pegasys) plus ribavirin is 48 weeks for people with hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes 1 or 4 and 24 weeks for those with easier-to-treat genotypes 2 or 3 (though many experts recommend 48 for HIV positive people regardless of genotype).
Avatar n tn The two companies will share 180-day marketing exclusivity (meaning no other generic competition for six months). Teva (a large generic manufacturer based in Israel) has also filed an ANDA for generic ribavirin. Average wholesale prices (AWP) for 200 mg capsules (usual dose is 1000 or 1200 mg/day, depending on weight -- see the bottom of this message for links to explanations of AWP): Three Rivers: $9.93 [source: Pink Sheet] Sandoz: $9.93 (wholesale acquisition cost is $5.
1739637 tn?1312327010 Using Pegintron/Rebetol, adding Victrelis next week. 4 week labs will also be done next week. I'll post when I know, Take care.
Avatar f tn 2 of the bottles were the white bottles with aluminium sealed tops looks like right from the manufacturer type. Why would this other bottle not be the same. The reason I am saying this is the white bottle has a lot number and expiration of 09. The other one says its expired in May 07, no lot number of course becasue of bottle type I guess. Isn't that cutting it close(May 07)? Plus the sticker that is over the white bottle says 07. Why does it say 09 underneath.

Avatar n tn Iam 52 and thought it was that , IT really isn't as bad as I thought it would be, BUT I could never work, SO my heart goes out to those who do! I am peg alfa 2b and 1200 mlg a day of rebetol. I am so weak but I will not give up.
Avatar n tn I laid in bed and would eat, sleep, rest and take pills and that was it. for weeks. I am wondering if my REBETOL is worse than the shot.ITS shot day today and I will try harder and I know how you feel , good luck and this is the best place to go for support. Aubbie GOD BLESS!!!
Avatar m tn I don't think it's a problem. During tx 1 I received only capsules and the manufacturer changed a couple of times. This tx it's been all pills, starting with the pink ones and now they are white aspirin-looking things. In tx 1 the riba came from a local pharmacy, in tx 2 both the peg and riba come from Aetna. It's the pharm getting the best price that they can.
956931 tn?1271639769 a confusing term that can lead consumers to believe that the recall is optional. But voluntary recall is just government-speak for a deal that a manufacturer or retailer of a hazardous product has negotiated with the federal agency in charge of overseeing the safety of that product category.
Avatar n tn actually what it boils down to is how much influence the manufacturer has with the doc.... read the studies and you will see that the redi-pen has the edge.
Avatar n tn Most docs who recommend one over the other have some involvement with that particular drug manufacturer or did have. Mine was involved previously with a pegintron trial and was in the proccess of applying for funds from them again for another study. Still he had no problem giving me what I wanted. I don't know of any health reasons they would say no to one drug over the other. My doc was all for extended tx in my case but his RN told me he thought it was not neccessary.
73878 tn?1214056807 The study I am on is COMPARASION OF PEG-INTRON 1.5ug/kg/wk PLUS REBETOL vs PEG-TNTRON 1ug/kg/wk PLUS REBETOL vs PEGASYS 180 ug/wk PLUS COPEGUS in previously untreated adults with hcv Geno type 1. I am on the third arm of the study . I too went to the DR. Tho he gave me a RX for Ad he did so with hesitation . Neither of us feel I am depressed , just stressed. I was also very anemic , still am to my way of thinking . I function at 14 hgb normally not at my present 10 .

Avatar m tn Funding support for this study, which took place between March 2004 and June 2006, was provided by the Schering-Plough Corporation of Kenilworth, N.J., the brand manufacturer and provider of study drugs ribavirin (also known as Rebetol, F.D.A. approved since 1996) and peginterferon alfa-b (or Peg Intron, approved in 2001). Peginterferon alfa-a (or Pegasys, approved in 2002) is manufactured by Hoffman La Roche Inc., of Nutley, N.J.
2084103 tn?1332361453 The larger as sign refers to the cutoff point due to the inherent background of the test. It is indeed to be assumed that the manufacturer instructions are simply not followed in this case to give the impression of a higher sensitivity.
Avatar f tn I am going to be taking PegIntro and Rebetol 200mgs x. 4 I wish I got the doctor...but at least I know something now. Sounds like he does this very often as she had all the answers straight on hand for me pretty much. PS they did try to call me yesterday it turns out but they called my home - where I am not when I'm at work. So I feel a bit better now.
Avatar f tn Different molecules. But the fact that Peg Intron is weight-based seems to suggest that the manufacturer feels that a higher dose of that drug is needed for heavier people.
29837 tn?1414538248 Single-Patient INDs and Emergency INDs In many cases, the investigational drug will not be available through an expanded access program from the manufacturer. For such cases, the discussion below addresses how a physician can file a single-patient IND or an emergency IND for treatment of a patient with an investigational drug.
Avatar n tn The only time they were high off the chart(2004) was when I was on peg-intron/rebetol; I felt like I was being poisoned. My viral load has increased in increments of approximately 500,000 copies per year(after 6 mths. on interferon it jumped 1,000,000.) not the wild flucuations "everyone" seems to be experiencing. I am not anti-pharmecuetical(I take 130mgs. methadone daily), I am just reporting the facts as they have materialized for me.
