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. Learn more Natrise details here. ## To increase the Sodium, you can follow the simple Home remedy [Home-Treatment] Put 10 to 15 drops of Lemon juice and 1...

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?

tolvaptan asp

Tolvaptan pastiglie per uso personale. Per curare iponatremia. ## Sono anni che cerco questo farmaco prodotto dalla Otsuka, ma ne' in Italia, ne' in Inghilterra, ne' in Germania si trova e nemmeno in Italia. Com'e' possibile che non sia ancora in vendita dal momento che e' stato approvato nell'agosto dell'anno scorso? Grazie ## Il farmaco samsca dell'Otsuka risulta introvabile eppure e' stato approvato l'anno scorso. Come mai non viene ancora dispensato ne' direttamente agli ammalati ne' tramite gli Ospedali che qui a Trieste non conoscono nemmeno l'esistenza. Come mai a distanza di un anno dalla sua approvazione i medici d'Italia non formulano una richiesta congiunta al fine di ottenere questo farmaco innovativo per i loro mal...

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...

bottel feeding

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).

My son has pkd, and have been told about a new drug call tolvaptan.Please send me any info you have on this.Thank You! Patricia ## i also have pkd and would be interested in trying this drug. is it sold yet? ## Tolvaptan hasn't been FDA approved yet. Phase 3 clinical trials are beginning. Check the PKD Foundation website for more info/clinical trials. The Mayo Clinic is one of several centers participating in the trial. ## Also, please check the PKD charity website. Tolvaptan is marketed by Otsuka Pharmeceuticals, another possible source of info. ## Yes, unfortunately, until it passes the rigorous testing for the FDA, it will not be available and you will have to stick with other treatment options.
