Hi everyone --
My onc prescribed Zofran this week to help with the nausea and vomiting I had been enduring pretty consistently due to the 400 mg Gleevec. Has anyone else tried this? Did it work? Also, the pharmacy called and notified me that the insurance company would only pay for 12 pills of the script for 30 pills. I guess they think it is fine for me to puke 18 days of the month potentially. Has anyone else had trouble getting insurance coverage for Zofran (or the generic form)?
I plan to contact the insurance company after I am sure the zofran is effective for me and explain the "economics" of their denial. I understand that my the cost of zofran is about $100 a month. If they don't want to cover it and the onc decides to switch me to Tasigna or Sprycel, it will much more than $100 more a month! Geesh!
