• Zytiga

    Asked by c1a1c1 on Friday, August 17, 2018


    The funding my husband received for 8 months of Zytiga has ended and he now has to contact the pharmaceutical company directly instead of going through the oncologist's office. Does anyone out there have any input on doing this and what is the success of getting more funding?

      Yes, I am an oncology nurse. Go to NeedyMeds.org and click on the menu, hover over patient savings and drop down boxes will appear. Go to brand name drugs, then to the letter Z. Find zytiga and click on it. Look for a symbol of a coupon and scissors. Click on that and this will tell you how to get it from the pharm house. There is usually a toll free number to call and they will walk you thru it. Best of luck to you.

      I believe the Oncologists office (their patient advocate) should contact the manufacturer for you, In the end it is they that have to furnish your medical info and confirm that they are continuing to prescribe the medication. You can give them your household income information to include with their request.That's the way my Oncologist assists his patients. Good luck.

      Yes agreed, have you MO contact the drug Manufacturer and apply to get in the Patient Advocacy Group to get the drug FOC ...I have done this for past 2 years for Pembroluzimab as an optimistic experimental case study for MPC, and my data is provided to Merck Pharma to enhance and tweek for other forms of cancer.

      The oncologist told us that they only did the contact for the first time which was January 2018 and after that it was up to my husband to do it (after Sept. 1.) Have you ever heard where a patient was denied assistance from the manufacturer?
