I would love your input please with regards to my hematologist is considering change of my meds from Hydrea to Jakafi. This is the first time that it will be used for polycythemia. It has been used in cases of high risk myelofibrosis. This will be in response to the issue of both hands swelling..nausea etc, that falls under Hydrea.
Has anyone been given this medication? Side effects..feel bette etc.
FYI..this medication is EXPENSIVE, but have been able to get down from $3,750.00 to $25.00. And yess that would be my co pay. Normal price is $16,000 per month.
Thank you all for your help
