My dream drug. Emend (Aprepitant )
2 Replies
Noca - November 29

My pain meds and GERD cause me to be chronically nauseous almost every day. I just wish I could afford relief.

Emend (Aprepitant) an NK1 antagonist, is the strongest antiemetic in the known universe. It costs like $789 for 10x125mg dose. Could quite possibly be the most expensive medication too. I wish I had it for my nausea.

The drug not only works on nausea/vomiting, but it also has anti-depressant and anxiolytic properties too.

I like Emend's website that says that "People accept the fact that chemotherapy will cause nausea and vomiting. We find that unacceptable" :D

Anyone else have a dream drug that they cannot afford?

What's unacceptable is that the drug companies can charge that much. So I guess what the message that they want to convey here is that only "the wealthy" sick people can be helped. What a sad state of affairs and again, unacceptable! When my husband was suffering from cancer they prescribed Marinol for him. It seemed to help him with the nausea.
Yeah, I guess the Emend people find that unacceptable....for a price...

That is so crazy that it is that costly. I'd like a drug to boost my energy and kill all my pain, I assume though that miracle drug won't be invented for another 100 years! :(
