You don't mention whether or not your doctor has recommended that you take Lynparza or whether they have discussed with how it would be paid for. To gain access to Lynparza, the drug needs to be prescribed by your doctor. The
physician or you, as the patient, would then need to contact AstraZeneca’s Patient Assistance Program
for information on financial coverage, including coordination of coverage at
1-877-280-6208. Your doctor should have all this information and know how to go about it.
Do you have any other specific questions? What are things you are considering as you make this decision?
"As per the olaparib (LYNPARZA) Product
Monograph, olaparib should be taken on an empty stomach (at least 1 hour
after a meal) and patients should refrain from eating for up to 2 hours, due to
absorption rate of olaparib in high fat meals. (This is different than what
many consider eating on an empty stomach as that leads one to assume they can
eat after dosing.) As far as tablets versus capsules goes, we are only approved in capsule
formulation in Canada at this time."
I hope this helps!
