@AmyMcGrathKY @PhRMA Oh sure they are helping that is why I received a letter from my insurance saying that they will not cover Lantus on my drug A lower cost list. So now I have to switch to Basaglar.

@jedleonard @Jareth31851135 @stox48 @SpeakerPelosi Humira, on the market since 2002. 132 patents block competition until 2048. Revlimid, approved in 2005. 96 patents block competition until 2049. Lantus, 49 patents block competition until 2048. Patent abuse is a game of death you can only play in the United States.

@askUHC Here’s how you can assist. Start covering novolog and lantus that I’ve been on for 20 years. Instead you cheap assholes want me to change insulin.

@CMichaelGibson What is scary is hearing Sanofi who brought us Lantus, Plavix deciding to forgo further research in CV and Diabetes and focus on oncology. The CV space is facing an impending dearth of innovation similar to abx

@RH4N6 It is pure money business... it's really sad unless another pharma picks up where they left! Lantus and Toujeo were a breakthrough in insulins 😩

Saw this coming years ago, doubt there was a patient focused approach here. Milking patients, especially T1D dependent on Lantus. twitter.com/jkarahal/statu…

@wedge9986 That's good progress! I had a diabetic girl, Anna, in 2004, she took awhile to stabilize, finally the then new Lantus worked for her.

@_waleedshahid Did anyone notice the epi pen wasn’t a epi pen it was insulin.. lantus at that

@donnabrazile Lantus is $550 (five hundred fifty) a bottle....or you can go to the feed store & it’s $16 (sixteen) a bottle...🤔 How is this happening?!?

@FennerMichelle @DrDixonFtW @jwsamuel @rmsgeek @misterchambo @NoFreeLunchHere @choo_ek @SurgeryCenterOK Yup. @Bioconlimited, Indian, has been making glargine (Lantus) in India since 2006. Lots of Chinese companies as well. Was told an insulin vial was ~7000 won in South Korea (~$7) but didn't go to a pharmacy to check

Has anyone else ever received loose #Lantus insulin pens from #Walgreens because #BlueCross told them they had to take them out of the box?

@dljordan2 @Humana @pulte I understand!!! I’m a type I diabetic, too and it’s so expensive to stay alive!!! Life shouldn’t be like this! I’m so sorry!!! I started using Lantus solostar and Novolog flex pens for less out of pocket cost. It was scary to switch but saved $$! @sanofi @novonordisk

I’m so sorry, Mrs. Doe, you’re in the donut hole (complex Medicare Part D lingo) ... the copay for your Lantus insulin Rx (to keep you alive) is $350 this month. -We’re tired of saying this over and over and over.- #MedicareForAll twitter.com/berniesanders/…

@dljordan2 @Humana @pulte No doubt. I use novolog and lantus. Both a almost 600 a piece. Use a prescription discount card and still charges 400$

@anish_koka Incidentally I'm not aware of any evidence that Lantus improved hard outcomes over existing alternatives. I have many patients that find cost of insulin prohibitive.

@ajayacharya @VishakhaJ18 Januvia contains Sitagliptin, not Vildagliptin. Sitagliptin is still under patent so this will not affect its price.

@DoctorLFC @VishakhaJ18 Doc, does this influence the price of Januvia-100? It's got Vildagliptin and costs Rs. 315 for 7 tablets. I used to take a cheaper equivalent Zita-100 containing Sitagliptin for Rs. 180 for 7 tablets, which was made not-available since 2 years.
