PROLIA


My mom needs to take an injection called PROLIA and she says it costs over a grand in the States.

Can one of you good-hearted souls who live near a pharmacy tell me if this is available in Mexico and for how much?

Muchas gracias de antemano (thanks in advance)

Blanca

Injectable Prolia — Osteoporosis Update
www.todaysgeriatricmedicine.com/archive/110310p6.shtml
Cost could be seen as an obstacle for patients considering Prolia as a treatment option. While generic Fosamax costs roughly $100 to $200 per year and brand-name bisphosphonates slightly less than $1,000 per year, Prolia will cost about $1,650 per year plus the cost associated with an office visit.

from Google.

According to article no more effective than existing generic stuff.

Blanca.....have her check with AARP/United Healthcare. I believe it is now open enrollment period. Open enrollment closes on December 7th

Not an endorsement, but this is just one of many plans available
