Xifaxan i dont need.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I suffered liver failure in June and bought $6000 worth (75 days-150 pills). I am unable to continue my treatment as I will soon be homeless. I wish to find someone who can use it.

      I am losing my place to live. My meld is 15 up from14 two months ago. On lactulose, Xifaxan, lasix, spironolactone and prilosec. All to combat HE and fluid retention. My current specialist sees me at no cost which is not likely to be the case in a city, where i would have to go to get in a shelter (on the waiting list actually). The Xifaxan is $2100/mo but the manufacturer provide for free as long as i have a real physical address to send it. So it is highly unlikely i will survive the year. I simply cannot do physical labor and no one will touch me while I have this problem.

      I'm optimistic as a rule but I'm a realist as well. Thank you for the supportive words.

      Difficult to know what to say. Over here we have the NHS and whilst they might not have all the money to spend on the latest drugs, at least you would be taken care of.
