Hello all! Have any of you recieved information from your clinic on the follistim packaging changes?
I had previsouly used follistim due to a discount program for military but now my clinic is STRONGLY recommending against it.
The packaging was recently changed so the vile is not sealed in plastic and the box is not sealed.
essentially the medication is no longer tamper proof. My nurse said she had no idea how it was even approved by the FAA. The drug rep was in the office this week and my clinic basically said they WILL NOT perscribe it until packaging is changed back.
Now I have to use gonal f (totally the same drug) just a hassle to get approved for compassionate care, their discount program.
Has anyone run into this issue? If not, THIS IS A WARNING TO BE CAUTIOUS WITH FOLLISTIM.
