Cost of tolvaptan

I'm trying to find out the cost of one pill of samsca (tolvatan). My family member is on it for hyponaturemia & has cancer as well. I'm not happy with the rehab this person is in as a result of the cost of this med. ## cost is $300 per day-- this is usual with all new drugs -- price declines as it is produced ## The price, of course, can vary depending on where the medication is obtained, it will not always be exactly the same at all pharmacies or care facilities, however most drugs are quite expensive. The main use of this drug is to treat, as you said, those low blood sodium levels. You may wish to ask if there are any alternative treatment options available. There isn't a lot of information available on this medication, but you can read the little there is here: I wis...

Tolvaptan and sclerotherapy

A shaggy dog organ recital. My kidneys! The wonders of modern medicine! I have a hereditary disease called polycystic kidney disease. Interesting! I inherited it from either my mother or father and my daughters have a 50% chance of acquiring it. No evidence they do. It results in the growth of cysts on the kidneys until the number and size of them shuts down the kidneys, necessitating dialysis and/or transplants. Years ago I checked in with my family doctor and asked if I was fit enough to backpack across the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. He ordered blood tests and was alarmed by my creatinine reading. It was quite elevated. He suspected that it may be the meds I was taking and I quit them and was retested in a week and found it came down to an acceptable level though still high. He said whe...

Natrise 15

My mother's sodium levels are below normal levels, so the Dr prescribed one tab twice daily. As this is very costly, can you suggest an alternative medicine? ## Hi, Tapati! I'm very sorry to hear about your mother's problem. Do they know what's caused her sodium to drop so low? There are other similar medications available, but I am not sure which ones are on the market in the India. The best suggestion I can make would be to ask her doctor, or a pharmacist/chemist. They should be able to help you find a cheaper option, if there is one there. It does need to be treated, or this condition may result in permanent damage.

How to find Tolvaptan?

I've been prescribed Tolvaptan. I'm a United States citizen and it is too expensive here. I'm aware of all the generic brands circulating in India (Hyponat-O, Resodim, Tolsama, Tolvat, etc.) Is there any way for me to get these drugs delivered to the United States? Again, I have a prescription, I just cannot afford Samsca in the US. Can someone out there point me in the right direction?

If the doctor is prescribing Tolvaptan molecule, then you can buy Hyponat O tablet which also contains the same molecule and is the cheapest drug available with no compromise in quality as it is manufactured by Zydus. It cost about Rs. 29 for a tablet

Samsca for SIADH / Hyponutremia

How can I find a doctor who will prescribe Samsca? I haven't been able to find anyone who will... ## What are you trying to get it prescribed for? It's generally only used to treat low blood sodium levels, so unless someone has severely low levels that demand treatment with it, it is unlikely that a doctor will prescribe it. ## SIADH / hyponutremia. I've read all about the drug, & think I meet all the criteria. However I can't find a doctor that has any experience with it. ## A Dr who thinks you meet the criteria will prescribe it. Unfortunately even with insurance most cannot afford it long term. It is over $2500 for my father and we cannot afford it. Great miracle working drug but priced out of reach for the majority of those who need it.

Samsca help

I was on assistance program and was taken off they said Medicare would cover but that price is still 2700.00 month. Where can I appeal or get other help? ## It's still that much just for your co-pay? Unfortunately, most manufacturers won't provide assistance for their products, if someone has prescription insurance of some type. The manufacturers do have a hotline for their access program, you may want to try calling them and see if there's anything you can do, it's 866-758-7069. Learn more Samsca details here. There are a few other medications in this class available, but I am not sure if any would be much cheaper. Have you tried asking your doctor or pharmacist? ## Yes it's the only thing tha works tried all other thanks for info will try that number

Where to buy Tolvaptan?

I have someone in India asking for this drug since his father is terminally ill from a kidney disease (I am in US). The doctor in a well known hospital there asked to find out if they can buy from somewhere since the alternatives are not working for the patient. He suggested to get from Japan, but they don't have anyone there to contact. Can someone suggest how I can buy this drug in US (I know it has been approved here now), and do I need to consult a doctor to get a prescription? Will he prescribe, even though the patient is in India? Also, can I just get prescription from India and buy online? If not use the prescription (and diagnosis and other documents) to contact a doctor here for more help. Please give some suggestions. Thanks. ## No, no US doctor will provide a prescription...

painful heavy legs balance problem

painful very heavy legs,,can't stand for more than 5 minutes, walk for less than 10 minutes, and ballance problems. ## It is very difficult to narrow down what may be causing your problem just from the limited information in an online post. Such symptoms can be caused by many different medical issues and to discern which one, your entire medical history needs to be taken into account, as well as any medications you may be taking. Have you discussed the problem with a doctor, yet? It could be from an injury, chronic fatigue syndrome: or Hyponatremia: or Hypokalemia: or dehydration or any one of a large number of others.

My daughter 3year old, she is edicted for bottel feeding still ,is this is good or bad? ## Of course it is bad for her. Especially her teeth. It is easier for you, that is why she is still on it. Grin and bear it and take it away, she will get over it. (ps on Super Nanny the kids have a ceremony to give away all their binkys to the binky fairy and they get a prize).
