Egrifta phone number!
« on: July 28, 2014, 02:38:45 AM »
Folks, I got a letter from my doc (God bless her) that has a phone number for Egrifta assistance. They took my name and found my computer file and assured me that as soon as drug was available they would contact me. Here is the number: 844-347-4282.

I distrust morning people. I suspect they setup the rules of life while the rest of us slept.

Hey I found this:

Montreal, Canada – September 3, 2014 – Theratechnologies Inc. (TSX: TH) is pleased to
announce that a first shipment of EGRIFTA® (tesamorelin for injection) was sent to its U.S.-
based wholesale distributor in order to replenish the supply chain. As a consequence,
EGRIFTA® will once again be available to patients in the United States by mid-September, as
New batches of the 1mg presentation of EGRIFTA® have been manufactured since June.
Production of additional batches is already scheduled and will occur over the next weeks and
“I am extremely pleased that EGRIFTA® will soon be available again to patients who need this
treatment. This is also welcome news for shareholders as resumption of commercial activities
will have a direct, immediate and positive impact on the financials of our company” said Luc
Tanguay, President and CEO, Theratechnologies Inc.
This represents the first commercial activity for Theratechnologies in the United States since
regaining rights to EGRIFTA® in this territory in May 2014.
“This is an important milestone for the company as we recently regained all rights to
EGRIFTA® in the United States. We are now in a position to fully benefit from this transaction.
By assuming marketing and sales responsibilities, Theratechnologies is now poised to make
significant headway in the United States,” added Mr. Tanguay.
Shipment of EGRIFTA® to the United States had to be interrupted last April due to difficulties
experienced with the manufacturing process of the 2mg presentation.
After consulting with regulatory authorities, it was decided to revert to the original 1mg
presentation, which was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in
November 2010 and did not experience any commercial delay with the manufacturing of the
1mg presentation.

finally  got to  chat with  Egrifta   rep  today....  the  working number is 844 347 4382
long chat  come to  this  if you want to get  Egrifta  you have to  start from scratch  fill all the  forms to get  Medical  necessity  and  insurance  approvals   and  new  package will go back to the original format of  two  vials  to be mixed   and then injected... so  anyone  who  hasnt already  done this  will  need to get the  forms  for  accomplishing this  from DR  or  from Egrifta  directly   this may  be finally  resolved   
I  was  told they are  actually  shipping  some  of the  new packages  now  but  only a few Pharmacies / Providers  have them.   Accredo  does not  have any  stock

Hi,  I found this link and although it's a financial summary of the company that makes Egrifta, you learn of the processes that led to the stoppage of Egrifta And that they have resumed production and sales.  Follow the money...Here is a link,
