even though this isn’t AIH related, I love to see these amazing success stories for liver transplants and care.
I went to Safeway to fulfill my prescription and they were out of both Generic and branded Prograf Tacrolimus, with no date available on when they could get it.
This was the first time ever.
They called another pharmacy in Calgary that had less than a months dose on hand, so I went to get it, and have a little stash.
I cant find anything online that indicates there is a shortage so I am watching this carefully.
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!
i have a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving long weekend!
I am running a promotion and giving a 15% discount on all sitewide orders. I am matching that 15% and making a donation to the Canadian Liver Foundation.
Thank you for all your support, and thank you Canadian Liver Foundation for your tireless fundraising efforts for research, education and programs ❤

A Toast to All The REAL Women
On Friday night my hubby and I drove around the parking lot of the movie theatre trying to find a spot. He claims he is “the parking whisperer” but I don’t think the other drivers agree. He tried to double park on the Starbucks patio. I had never seen the parking lot so busy in my life. Were they releasing a new Apple watch or a new movie about the release of an Apple watch?
Friday was the release of Amy Schumer’s semi autobiographical movie Trainwreck and if we didn’t find a spot soon, we were going to be making the sequel. As we sat down four rows from the front, I turned my head and the theatre was sold out with equal attendance of both men and women.
This was not your chick flick crowd…this was Amy’s crowd.
She’s flawed, she’s honest…
