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...

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...

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.
