I've been reading that there's several generic drugs recently approved that are equivalent to Revlimid, and cost much less. Has anyone heard of these, what do you think? Teva and Natco are two of the manufacturers. I was overwhelmed by the potential costs/year of Revlimid.
Let us know how you make out checking on the Revlimid issue. I used Optum pharmacy and switched oncologists and got the grants from a local Cancer Center provider. Both took care of it as it is very expensive. I read the story of Doctor Richard Allison and the historical change in R&D for the cancer field of Immunology,”Breakthrough “ . Research funding and development goes on sometimes for decades. Our current MM cancer Research and Development pipeline is extensive now and new treatments ar3 here soon. Hang in there, Keep in touch.
Thanks for this. I've read a fair amount, with some contradictions. I couldn't qualify for the first grant and will try another. I'll try to get Johns Hopkins to research the real price now of both BSM Revlimid and the four generics and give seeking a grant some more tries. I've also read from Ralph Moss and one other that oncologists and hospitals get compensated from the drugs--so the more expensive the drug maybe the more there is to pay them. Your insight and story appreciated.
That won’t work. Government based insurance disqualifys you
Thanks, could you please tell more specifics. What pharmacy? I have medicare Part D with Humana and they were no help at all.
