What is Valcyte?
Valcyte (valganciclovir) is an antiviral drug prescribed as long-term therapy for people with HIV/AIDS. Specifically, it is for those who have contracted cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. It also prevents CMV in organ transplant recipients as young as one month old. CMV usually causes no symptoms in a healthy person but can be serious or fatal in people with weak immune systems. While Valcyte can prevent the spread of CMV and provides symptomatic relief, there is no cure, and the virus remains in the body for life.
Valcyte is taken by mouth with food, in tablet form for adults and liquid form for children.
What does Simplefill Provide?
For people with a weakened immune system, the normally innocuous CMV virus is potentially life-threatening. Valcyte can help keep CMV at bay, but its cost can be prohibitive. Living with a virus that can cause blindness, esophagitis, colitis, and central nervous system diseases like encephalitis is difficult enough without the additional financial stress of trying to pay for an uninterrupted supply of Valcyte.
By connecting you with Valcyte prescription assistance sources, Simplefill not only alleviates the financial stress, but also helps ensure that you never are without the medication you need to keep CMV at bay. That’s what Simplefill does—connect people who need help paying for expensive medications with the programs offering prescription assistance.
How Does Valcyte Work?
Valcyte is an antiviral medication that metabolizes in the body to ganciclovir, which inhibits the growth of the CMV virus and prevents it from spreading to other parts of the body.
