I an now able to get my Midrin, since it has been newly approved as of July, 2011. However, when it came back onto the market, it is now extremely expensive and is not covered by Medicare/Medicaid, or most other insurances. Does anyone know if the Pharmaceutical company will help with paying any portion of the expense? It is the only medicine that has ever worked for my headaches.Thanks.
This is what was found on the net & I copied it for your information.
"Based on a review of this drug (isometheptene mucate) by the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council and/or other information, FDA has classified the other indication as "possibly" effective in the treatment of migraine headache. Final classification of the less-than-effective indication requires further investigation."
It is being manufactured & distributed by: CARACO PHARMACEUTICAL LABORATORIES, LTD. DETROIT, MI 48202 Under license from: Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, you could perhaps write to them for more information regarding paying options.
Please take care, be well & safe! Best wishes...
It is NOT being manufactured by Caraco (you can check their site) despite the high demand. It is difficult to find even for the pharmacists. My doctor had to call the hospital pharmacist to see where it could be ordered from. When my pharmacist tried to order it from her normal pharmaceutical manufacturers it was unavailable. I let her know that possibly the only way to order it is via Macoven pharmaceuticals. She went onto that order site and there it was available for order. I picked it up within 2 days. Please let your pharmacist know it is available through Macoven and to order it from there. It is a generic and should be fairly cheap.
