Tarceva 150 mg packaging

A weekly series identifying prescription drugs manufactured in America and their prices.

Tarceva (erlotinib) is a drug used for treatment of certain types of non-small cell lung cancer as well as pancreatic cancer. Cancer medications are known for their excessively high prices, leading to outcries among doctors within the past few years. A product of drug company Roche, Tarceva is manufactured in the U.S.A. and available at much lower prices from verified international online pharmacies than here at home. At a New York City Rite-Aid, it costs $6,531 for 30 pills (100 mg). From a approved international pharmacy, it’s only $1,949. That’s a $4,582 savings, or 70%.

Check back next week for the savings on another American drug available abroad.
