Red-faced I was with Dona_B >>it was all gloves and baggies for my 100 mg Sprycel...at least for the first three months....and in my defense, the insert was exhaustive with precautions. I even took my empty bottles back to the pharmacy
I'm long over it but meds still come in a baggie marked, "CYTOTOXIC MATERIAL HANDLE PROPERLY". This used to scare the bejesus out of me but now I realize when you spend this much for pharmaceuticals they just must feel compelled to throw in a little something extra pilon, as we say in Texas or lagniappe for our Cajun friends. Labels and over the top packaging are just Bristol-Meyers way of assuring you it's the real thing that merits your investment and hard earned dollars.
It is scary in the beginning and the one remaining question I have had is, what do you do when you travel by plane? Do you take the little Baggie with the scary stickers? Do you have to worry about a labeled bottle? Do you leave some at home? Awh oh...I can feel a million worrisome thoughts bubbling up, damn SEs. You get the point...any advise?
