Reply To: Krystexxa Experience

I believe they are filling mine as Colchrys. It comes in a white, screw-top bottle, not a brown see-thru like other meds. Maybe that’s why it’s costing so much. My co-pay is $100/month or $200/90 day supply. My doctor had said that there wasn’t a generic available. I saw the article saying a generic was to be available last year. I’m going to dig further.

I’m glad not to be taking it every day, and sometimes 2x/day, as I had to do with the Krystexxa infusions. My stomach is finally getting back to normal. I had many, very painful gout flare ups during infusion. Previously, I only had 3-4 a year.
