      I was going to say the same thing as above. If it is too expensive then, contact the American Cancer Society. They have financial programs for needy patients. Bless you. I know how you feel. This is the third time through for me. The good news is how much they have improved treatment. Although losing my hair last time was not fun. It is on my pelvic bone and it has been nine years each time for me. Now I am on Femara again and a bone strengthener and it is working. Just take one treatment at a time! Keep asking questions and be proactive about your health. No questions are dumb!!!

      Thank goodness Femara is now in a generic form under the name Letrozole. When I was first rediagnosed with breast cancer, about 2 years ago, my first prescription cost me almost $500.00(for a month dosage) I had terrible insurance then. But, the brand name pharmaceutical company which produced it back then, did help me to get a couple of subsequent prescriptions filled at a much lower price. I sometimes wonder if the generic form is identical to the brand name.

      Talk to your doctor about the insurance availability for Femara. Maybe the Business Office of the hospital can help. Contact Medicare or the manufacture for Femara for assistance.
