Did Anyone Know About The New Generic Velcade?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I just learned that I have been getting the generic Velcade since the beginning of July. I noticed there was huge price difference on my bill, and called my hospital to see if they had made a mistake. Turns out that it indeed was the correct pricing! It dropped $4000! That might also be why I've been feeling different after my last few injections. A little more run down, weaker and slightly nauseous. 🤔 Funny no one informed me of this at the infusion center.

Greetings from Alaska I hadn’t heard Velcade went generic but that would stand to reason why my bill was very low as well I thought maybe the government got a good discount. I know Revlimid has also gone generic. I will be on the lookout for changes and side effects I know people are experiencing different side effects with the new generic revlimid

Greetings from Alaska I too am a veteran and VA covers my Revlimid cost me nothing. My oncologist sends my script in to the VA and then the pharmacy calls me which is McKesson and my medicine is mailed out to me FedEx. The VA has been really good they provide all my medicine as well as sent me to Seattle for my SCT I have no complaints about my service with the VA. God bless take care

Hey @DonnaAndrews, that post was from a while ago. I know those two things are the same. My billing had always said bortezimib, but the pricing dropped significantly at that time. 💕
