Question from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia:
I have recently been commenced on Actos [pioglitazone] due to lack of control with other tabs. The cost at present is $186.00 per 28 days. Do you have any idea as to when it will be available on the PBS scheme in Australia? My many enquiries to date have not given any indication as to when this may happen. Cheers.
It would be wise for you to contact Australian Diabetes Association and ask these questions to them.
