Lilly Disappointed in Draft Medicare Coverage Decision for Beta-Amyloid Imaging Agents


  • Risk for Misreading Scans and Other Errors
    • Errors may happen when Amyvid scan images are read. In clinical studies, a scan read as negative, when it was actually positive, accounted for most of these errors. An Amyvid scan only indicates whether beta-amyloid plaques, which are a buildup of proteins in the brain, are present at the time of the scan. Even if the scan is negative, it is possible to develop plaques in the future
  • Radiation Risk
    • Amyvid, like other radioactive diagnostic agents, adds to overall, long-term combined radiation exposure. Long-term combined radiation exposure may increase risk of cancer

What are the most common side effects of Amyvid?

  • Headache
  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Tiredness
  • Nausea

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

What should I tell my doctor before taking Amyvid?

  • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • Tell your doctor about any prescription or over-the-counter medicines you are taking

Amyvid is available by prescription only.

See Prescribing Information.
