Daraprim Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Pyrimethamine, sold under the brand name Daraprim among others, is a medication used with leucovorin to treat the parasite diseases toxoplasmosis and cystoisosporiasis. It is also used with dapsone as a second-line option to prevent Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia in people with HIV/AIDS. It was previously used for malaria but is no longer recommended due to resistance. Pyrimethamine is taken by the mouth.
Back on 2009 a consumer of Daraprim wrote for WebMD a review, saying that Daraprim sucks: I DECIDED TO LET THE TOXO KILL ME NSTEAD OF TAKING THIS DRUG . 3 DOSES AND BED RIDDEN FOR 2 WEEKS. iN THOSE 2 WEEKS I COULD NOT KEEP ANYTHING DOWN INCLUDING WATER AND DEATH WOULD HAVE BEEN A SWEET RELIEF.THER ARE LESS AFFECTIVE AND LONGER TERM TREATMENTS AVAILABLE THAT ARE VERY TOLERANT.
