Yay!! Finally Generic Tacrolimus (Prograf)

Halle-friggin-uyah!

tacrolimus

In Canada, Tacrolimus is not covered by Blue Cross unless you have had a transplant.  Pre-transplant, this drug is not covered.  That means, monthly, my cost of this drug is just over $350 a month.  Its like a car payment.  Predmisone is another $60, so its a little over $400.

This month, I got a call from the Safeway Pharmacy, informing me that there is now (finally) a generic form of Tacrolimis called Sandoz-Tacrolimus.

Its about $1ed.  Even though it is less than a third of my costs, it is still a significant savings.  $1200 a year – I will take it!

Thank you, to liver research!
