Is Valcyte safe to take for post kidney transplant?
My husband is taking valcyte post kidney transplant. Genentech and Roche state since I work they cannot provide financial assistance but $850 a month out of pocket is more than we can afford for this drug. Any recommendations? No thanks not if I have to pay, I guess I'll continue to research further.
Valcyte is not only safe but also highly recommended in high risk renal transplant patients to avoid a deadly disease caused by cytomegalo virus which may lead to life threatening infections or renal graft rejection. Hence we have to administer valcyte in most cases of kidney transplant.
