I'm sure most of us are keeping our fingers crossed for an oral med, instead of the injectables we now use. And since most patents are soon to expire for the meds we now have....
This brings up several questions I think....
1. who will authorize the "switch" to an oral, and
2.if those with no insurance are on an injectable, will they be allowed to switch?
3. What about syringes , alcohol swabs, etc, will we revert to the old system of mixing the drug ourselves as we did with Copaxone? Will we be required to purchase the above once the patent expires?
4. Since betaseron is set to preview the "generic" version in 2009, will YOU trust a generic version??
I know there are a lot of questions, but I'm just wondering what everyone else thinks about the ones I've asked.
Every journey begins with a single step...Diane
