Hi Ed, I've had
my second shot of Amevive and I can see an improvement.
After the first shot, I just felt muscle aches and a little tired
but after the second shot I have had fevers three nights in a row.
The fever goes down after a dose of aspirin. My
body aches but other than that no bad side effects.
covers all but $35.00 a month for the dosage and I have to pay my derm
$25.00. I'm really pleased
that the insurance wanted to cover it.
I get my shot on Tuesday and try to have the blood work done on
Response: Thanks for the
update, Sue. So, fevers may be
another side effect of Amevive in the early weeks of treatment.
That’s the bad news. The
good news is the insurance coverage. So
far reports I’ve received place the cost of Amevive as high as $1,500
per week. Thankfully a
“course” of this stuff lasts only 12 weeks.
seeing improvement already is also good news.
Let’s hope this means your remission will last for many moons
after your 12 week course.
We look forward to more updates. -Ed
