As recently as yesterday my doctor prescribed a 3 month course of Oxandrin (5mg x 2/day) to help offset significant weight loss. Do you have any information on patient assistance programs for this medication, as my prescription coverage does not cover this medication, and I simply cannot afford it at retail prices. I am willing to contribute what I can though. Thank you for your time and kind consideration of my request.

Response from Ms. Fields-Gardner

Most companies that supply medications used in managing HIV disease and complications have patient assistance programs. Your doctor, pharmacist, or case manager should have contact information for those programs. Ask your pharmacist or case manager to provide this information to you and, if possible, pursue assistance on your behalf.

Best wishes!
