I had an aFib attack & a heart attack right afterwards. They were due to an extremely stressful and painful insertion of an Nasal-Gastro tube during an intestinal blockage attack—- Yes all 3 at almost the same time!
Anyway, after all this happened, I was prescribed Eliquis for preventing clots & strokes. Went to the drugstore to fill this & was presented a bill for over $350.00 for a 1 months supply! That is WITH drug insurance. Naturally, there was no way I could afford such an outrageous amount. I applied for financial help from the drug company, but was turned down because I had drug insurance. What a bunch of malarkey. I am now in limbo as I am getting a new heart dr., and can't see him for 2 months.
The old dr. refused to try Coumadin for me, in fact he refused any help at all, that's why a new dr. I am just taking baby aspirin.
Any ideas why Coumadin, an old standby was not prescribed instead of something unreasonably priced?
Thanks for the helpful material given here!!!!
