Accessing DIACOMIT

As a caregiver to a child with Dravet syndrome, you have enough to worry about.  Getting your child’s recommended treatment shouldn’t be on the list.  With Biocodex By Your Side, it’s easier than ever to get a prescription filled for DIACOMIT® (stiripentol).  DIACOMIT is available through our specialty pharmacy partner and covered by most insurance plans.
