I'm a patient of dr m, I've only ever paid $37 for two boxes of clexane.
Dr m normally does 400mg pessaries and it's cheaper from a compounding chemist. One of the cheapest around is Kingswood compounding and they'll post Aus wide. I think slades in Mel is pretty reasonable too.
Dr m never ticks the ob's thing on my scripts, the pharmacy just charges the pbs price. I'd double check with pharmacy.
You do need to meet certain criteria for an authority script. I'm not sure about the Prognova or pred, as they aren't expensive drugs anyway. PBS is when you pay the scheduled price for a more expensive drug ($38.30), and the government subsides the rest. I'm lucky to get everything at cost. Crinone is $153 a box with no authority (that's what I was paying at cost).

gagangi stupid question, but do chemist warehouse do our ivf cycle drugs? I've only been getting mine at hps pharmacy Albany creek cause that's where I was told to go get them. I've never even thought of going somewhere else I just assumed they weren't carried by other normal pharmacies?
Hello all. I struggle navigating bh on my phone and seldom get to the computer with my nearly 6 month old occupying all spare moments. I just wanted to say hi to everyone, that I think of you all lots. Chiefsgirl been particularly thinking you don't have long now - how exciting xx
Tinachris - I used to get all meds in the pharmacy in FS's building, until I found out their DHEA is $30-50 more than what others on here were paying (thanks ladies!). I then asked my local discount pharmacy - it's tiny and they said they could order everything in for me, but Inofolic. This cycle I've gone to them first with all scripts and they've had them. Their prices are excellent. They don't carry the refrigerated products, but can get them - so I'll see how timing works. We find fridge meds take up a lot of room in our fridge and I worry about cold spots so try to get them last minute. You need a compounding pharmacy for DHEA ($75 seems to be Bne rate) and Melatonin, but some smaller pharmacies (like my local) are part of a group and can order compounded meds with a day or twos notice. I haven't tried the chemist warehouse, but I'd ask. I'd expect a suburban pharmacy at Albany Creek should be cheaper than Wickham Terrace?
