Colombia



In late 2017, 28 20mg Juxtapid tablets were priced at $121,753,411
Colombian pesos – roughly $42,846 US dollars – according to the Colombian
observatory of drug prices. In 2016 the price for 28 20mg Juxtapid tablets
was $110,050,909 Colombian pesos. Several sources provided below suggest
this is the most expensive drug in the country.

CADTH has a website for Juxtapid: https://www.cadth.ca/lomitapide-4 One of
the reports is a “pharmacoeconomic review”, which states that “the
manufacturer submitted a flat price of $1,040 per capsule, with a patient
cap of $1,040 per day.”

I searched the keywords suggested by Kim at the Ministry of Health database
of registered drugs, msp.gob.do/regsanfar, which tends to be reliable.
Doesn’t seem to be registered here.


I hope this is useful,
