Does anyone know if Gleevec is cheaper if you take a lesser dose? If so, I'm thinking of asking my doctor to lower mine so I don't need to pay as much. I got to remission really fast so maybe I don't need as much as I am taking.
Is 300 mg. of Gleevec cheaper than 400 mg.?

Beanie, when I was on 400mg of G, my copay was the same as
300mg. It may cost the insurance co. less but it did not affect

I am on 300 mg. and the cost to my insurance co. was less than it was on 400mg.

You would want to buy 100mg tablets. They are priced by the tablet, so taking 3 would be cheaper than taking 4. That is just an economics view.
