Dear Members,

Hi Sudheer,

 

Welcome to GRACE. I am sorry to hear to hear of your aunt's diagnosis. Unfortunately we don't have information on how to procure Tagrix; that's beyond the scope of this site. I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer to find sources for the medication, or talk to your aunt's doctor.

Shivam Mishra,

 

I'm sorry but I don't have that information. It's best to get it from your oncology dept or contact Beacon pharmacy directly, they should be able to answer your questions.  I know how frustrating it is knowing there's a drug that may be very beneficial but not able to pay the price. 

 

I hope you are able to get the drugs you need.  Be persistent and as knowledgeable as possible. 

 

Sincerely,

Janine

You're very welcome.  I'm in the US and when we needed to pay for my husband's tarceva we couldn't afford to pay the copay (a deal with the insurance company where they pay part and we pay part).  The manufacturer was the only place I could find the help we needed.  I'm curious if tagrix manufacturer is helpful or someone in the oncology center.  In the US it's often who you know, what you know and how persistant you are.  It's a bad system but it sometimes works.  Perhaps you would return to share what you find. 

 

Hoping you find what you need,

Janine

Hello, 

I wish to know about Osimert from Bangladesh. 

If you know anything about it?

Perhaps you are referring to osimertinib, which is the scientific name (as opposed to the brand name) for Tagrisso/Tagrix.
