So for those using the First Vancomycin Kit, I just found out that it has been discontinued and they have something else similar called Firvanq. I need to get it for my son. Have you guys tried filling out a prescription for this? I am so afraid that the insurance won’t approve it
My son just got his first batch this week, but he won’t be starting it for about 2-3 weeks (he still has First bottle left). Our insurance won’t cover Vanco so we were paying $400/month. With Firvanq, its up to $600!
One thing to try is to call around to compounding pharmacies and see if they can compound IV vanco for oral use at a lower cost.
