Lov.e.nox math

A friend of mine just had to point this out to me the other day so I thought I would share it with you too...

I started doing shots in April (April 7th to be exact). It is now October.

From April to today I have done 366 injections.

60 - 30mg pre-filled syringes cost $1611 (without insurance coverage). That's $26.85 per injection.

So in the last 6 months I have managed to use 10,980mg of Lo.v.enox. That works out to be $9827.10.

To me - this all just cries out as a great big OUCH!!!

Isn't that just painful to type!! My new 80mg syringes are $936 for 15 - that's almost $2000/ month! There is something so, so wrong with this :)

Fingers crossed it's all worthwhile.

I was just counting the same thing this weekend! I have injected myself with something random for 8.5 of the last 12 months.

I stopped adding up my costs once our out of pocket was reached. The numbers are just way to painful!

Donna, if you email me I have a friend who has a bunch of leftover, unopened Lovenox and heparin to donate to someone. I'd be happy to put you in contact with one another! She wants it to go to someone who pays out of pocket too. If you don't want it, I'll offer it to Bluebird. She's paying a boatload too.
