Avatar m tn Solvaldi & Ribavirin could work together. Has anyone heard anything about this ? Also you can go to Web MD & qualify for a $ 5.00 Co-pay for a six month supply. This regiment, S& R is a 12 week program ! Gilead is giving to those that can't afford $ 1000.00 a pill . 12 week treatment for solvadi alone would be Eighty four thousand dollars !
Avatar m tn I would like to know the price of Pegasys and Ribavirin in China. Thanks a lot for your reply.
Avatar n tn If they have, they'll probably describe the packaging. If all that checks, and yours are 200 mg Ribavirin, don't worry about it. I hope it's less expensive! Rebetol capsules (SP) have been going for about $10 each, and Copegus (Hoffmann La Roche) for about $6.75; Fischer Pharmacy has been able to sell Ribavirin for around $1.25 per pill. Obviously competition is good for prices.
135456 tn?1301441224 Does anyone feel the Ribavirin really hit them a few hours after they take it? I wake up feeling decent but as soon as I take my first dose I'm feeling lower than a snakes nuts. I feel my liver swell and my extremities get ice cold. I'm conviced the interferon is a cakewalk by itself but the Ribavirin is the evil component to treatment. Any thoughts?
977806 tn?1249070946 Is there anyone that has ordered from a Canadian pharmacy online and if so do you have any recommendations for an online pharmacy. Thanks for any info. Knowing the cost of the Pegasys/Ribavirin I feel like an idiot complaining about an amount like $160.00 but if I can find a way. Thanks for any insight.
Avatar f tn I am trying to get the cheapest pegasys.Because I can not find my insurance. I do not know where I can get it & what's the precise price for pegasys. Best wishes our wardmate! May you recover soon!
Avatar n tn She wrote me a my first prescription for a one month supply of Pegasys (peginterferon alfa-2a) and another for a one month supply of Rebetol (ribavirin). This question regards the cost of these meds. Please let me know if the amounts I paid are in line with what y'all are paying. I filled the prescriptions at the pharmacy of the University Hospital here in Seattle. My experience is that they generally have the best prices on meds in the area.
Avatar m tn -------------------- As to the antacids you mention -- do not take them within 2-3 hours of your ribavirin dose or the ribavirin will not be absorbed as well. You will not have this problem with PPI's like Nexium, Aciphex, Prevacid, etc; or even H-2 Pumps like Zantac 100, Pepsid, etc.
Avatar m tn i just got switched to generic Riba by my insurance company. The monthly retail price on the script reads $389.69. When I was getting the Copegus the retail price read $1387.69. That's $2 shy of $1000 difference. Brand name was 9.25 pr pill. Generic is 2.59 pr pill. On the new paperwork it's just referred to as IC Ribavarin. Whopping difference huh?
Avatar n tn I guess most people in America have a lot of money to pay but the way I figure the price here would be over $23,000 for 48 weeks or what she earns in 6 years. I was shocked to see how much the drug companies can charge - I read today that a suspected 40 million cases are yet unconfirmed in China - and of course they also will not be able to try this medicine. Anywy if you know of a way to get it cheaper I will pass the information along.
1547916 tn?1294284211 here in the States, the cost for 24 weeks pegylated interferon/ribavirin, if purchased by cash out of pocket would cost (roughly) USD $14,000. (AUD $13,675). The interferon requires refrigeration; it is shipped overnight in cold-pack cooler containers.
Avatar f tn I just wanted to say that when I treated with Ribavirin and Interferon the doctor told me to be careful after finishing tx because my immune system had been so ramped up during tx that I could get ill after finishing, while my immune system tried to recover from the tx. I know you used the Sovaldi but I thought it could be the same premise. Also, once you get sick it is so easy to get sick again as your body is more susceptible.
901131 tn?1293748153 ” According to FDA labeling for Incivek, approved May 23, the drug should be taken for 12 weeks with either 24 or 48 weeks of pegylated interferon and ribavirin, depending on a patient’s response to the regimen. The wholesale price for 48 weeks of HCV treatment with pegylated interferon and ribavirin is about $30,000. The $49,200 WAC price for 12 weeks of Incivek, the FPC wrote, “will more than double the already exorbitant 48 week price” of hepatitis C treatment.
Avatar f tn I finished a year-long treatment of Pagasys and Ribavirin in 06/2008. It was successful! 18 months later however, I'm feeling little change from when I was taking the drugs. I'm having problems in many areas. I have chronic fatigue, "brain fog", short-term memory loss, rare but severe memory loss (like a blackout, during which I've had conversations, driven, walked, eaten), lack of focus, difficulty with spacial issues, tremors, acute joint pain, clumsiness and more.
Avatar m tn I have Hep-C G2. Started SOVALDI and Ribavirin 12 week treatment Dec 23, 2013 (viral load at 2.5 million), within 4 weeks into treatment my Hep C virus was undetectable. 12 weeks end of treatment my Hep C virus was undetectable. 4 weeks after treatment my Hep C virus was undetected. 12 weeks after of treatment my Hep C virus was detected at 83,000 viral load. It relapsed. What are my chances of a cure now?
1924780 tn?1323101960 Good luck with the trial, I pray these are the drugs needed so they can get on the market for all who need them (kinda scary how once they get to market the price is incredibly high and some insurances wont pay for it, there should be a law against that)
Avatar n tn I suppose the jury is still out, but lots of generics have been proven just as effective as the brandnames. When I was taking the Co-peg the 'list' price was about $1,300 a month. Now that I'm taking the generic the price has dropped to a 'mere' $600 a month. My co-pay stayed at $30 but I think if I had fought for the brand name, at best my co-pay would have gone up to 50% of the $600.
Avatar m tn A couple days and a dozen calls later I found out that a generic ribavirin named Ribasphere from Par/3Rivers was approved for distribution and delivery starting on 12/5/05. This event, along with the nature of my pharmacy coverage which caps costs of brand name drugs when there is NO generic, led to some anxious moments. The pharmacy ran the new generic and the old, lower co-pay appeared. After clearing the change with my doc, the order went through.
230202 tn?1370797179 Hi Everyone Just a question on how long does interferon and Ribavirin hang around in the body after treatment has finished. I think, but I am not sure, that the riba takes about 6 months and the interferon.....I have no idea how long it takes to leave. I would appreciate your thoughts on this.....
1125489 tn?1309309471 I am lucky in not having a detectable amount of hep C in my blood after six years, but I have developed, in the past two or three years, atrial fibrillation and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and I'm wondering if this could have been brought on by the pegylated Interferon / Ribavirin therapy because I was under a lot of stress during treatment and felt some of the same symptoms that I have now. Thank you.

Avatar m tn sofosbuvir/velpatasvir without ribavirin (97%); sofosbuvir plus daclatasvir with ribavirin (96%); and sofosbuvir with peginterferon plus ribavirin (95%). Among patients with cirrhosis, more achieved SVR when they received sofosbuvir/velpatasvir (96%) or sofosbuvir/daclatasvir plus ribavirin (94%) for 24 weeks, and sofosbuvir/velpatasvir plus ribavirin for 12 weeks (94%). “The key finding is that sofosbuvir/velpatasvir regimens achieve the highest efficacy in HCV genotype 3.
1893294 tn?1321220750 Anybody knows price without insurance? I mean pure price.
766573 tn?1365170066 Part 1 (n = 520) compared 4 different boceprevir-containing regimens vs a 48-week peginterferon/ribavirin (peginterferon alfa-2b 1.5 µg/kg plus ribavirin 800-1400 mg/day) control group. Two of the boceprevir (800 mg 3 times daily) arms had a 4-week lead-in with peginterferon/ribavirin, and then boceprevir was added for an additional 24 or 44 weeks. In the arms with no lead-in, boceprevir was combined with peginterferon/ribavirin for 28 or 48 weeks.
Avatar n tn First of all I'm greeting the boss and director of this web page for their valuable work they 're doing for the international community. I want to ask you, could you tell me the price of Pegasys injection in Germany? Thank you.
Avatar m tn In a nutshell, found I had the hep at the VA, they treated me for free 1) the first time just interferon and ribavirin 2)the second time recombinant interferon and ribavirin 3) the third time with bocepravir, pegylated interferon, and ribavirin 4) the fourth time with sofosbuvir, pegylated interferon, and ribavirin. With the sofosbuvir I was undetectable after four weeks. After 8 weeks. At the end of the 12 weeks. Just got the results of the 1 month after treatment bloodwork....
