The pamphlet the dr gave said the cost would be about $70 per month without insurance and $45 with insurance. I work for the govt and have bcbs and CVS wanted me to pay $212 because they said I have federal insurance and couldn't use the pharmacy. What is everyone else paying and why can't I use this savings card? Why am I being penalized? When will it be available through Caremark mail ordering? What other pharmacy can I use if I can use this savings card? ## Hello, Wanda! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you've had. Usually, that only applies to those who receive subsidized insurance from the government, such as Medicare and that is exactly what I'm reading on the Contrave site. This does not usually apply to insurance you have, because you work for th... ...

I was on Enbrel ten years ago with pleasant results. Then Humana Insurance stopped paying for it and I went on Methretrexate for several years. As I aged it seemed my rheumatoid arthritis got worse so doctor put me on Remicade which I had to obtain financial assistance for. Five years of wonderful help on disease, my funding ended and doctor put me back on Enbrel with new insurance company. Enbrel had a program that helped me financially and I received my first shipment last Friday. Followed directions for new version of giving a needle. I had no trouble with old system of physically injecting needle myself. This tubular, self contained needle and medicine required concentrated action on my part and I did all the directions said. When it came to pressing the purple tab on top, my arthri... ...

I am sooooo sick of being told that the pharmacies don't have my meds!!! I have a pain specialist in Lee county in Fl and live in Naples. I have been paying for my controlled meds at a pharmacy in Bonita when I have insurance that covers my medication in full !!! this particular pharmacy told me that they are no longer accepting insurance for controlled substances because they lose money so they are charging $3-$4 each for MS Contin 15 and even more for Norco or percocet. There HAS to be something illegal about this.....? I might as well just forget the stupid insurance and even the doc for that matter !!! I am paying $300 to see my doc every month and then another 2-400 for my meds and this month I just didn't have it so am only taking two norco a day when I am prescribed mscon... ...

Generic Norco don't work near as good as the name brand can I get help paying for the brand name my insurance won't cover it and I suffer from chronic neck and back pain neuropathy also ## Hello, Zachary! How are you? I am very sorry that you're in pain. Unfortunately, no. There are no assistance programs currently available for this, since it is available as a generic, as well as the name brand. The best suggestion I have is to speak to your doctor about the issue, they may be able to prescribe an alternative medication that would work better for you. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

effectiveness of various manufacturers generic adderal
Post a Reply
Many pharmacies use whatever companies products are currently available to to dispense. Shire's name brand products are often covered under all but a few insurance companies. It is the "most effective" in Shire's opinion. Teva, a Israeli pharmaceutical firm, as well as others make generic off shoots of mixed amphetamine salts cocombinations. They may be in short supply in areas. Small independent pharmacies are not allotted as many of these CII stimulates. Paying cash is preferred by pharmacies if generic substitutions are not marked or not in stock. One takes what one can afford or even find. My MD always issues me three different but similar Rx's and DOES NOT label them "NOT TO BE ISSUED A MONTH APART." A issuance of a Rx of a CII like generic Adderal's... ...

Discount Card
1 Reply RSS
My mother has been using the drug Pennsaid for knee pain. We recently had to change insurance companies and she went from paying $40.00 per month for this to now paying $136.00. This is totally unreasonable for her to have to pay this amount. I was curious to see if your company offered any type of drug discount card that would make this cheaper for her. This has helped her in her walking quite a bit but now has become a little too pricey for her. Thanks... ## Hi Donna, Sorry to hear about that crazy price increase. These pharmacies always find little ways to squeeze an extra paycheck out of people and it's a bit ridiculous to say the least. As far as saving money on her prescription, there are plenty of free Prescription Drug Discount Cards out there that you can find on google, wh... ...

Im thinking of switching from strips to zubsolv next month because I have no insurance is there anyone whos switched and liked it? ## It is the same, just under a different formulation and brand name, so it should work the same. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there a big price difference? ## I know you posted this a long time ago, but if you haven't switched, I would not recommend it. I did and it is awful. I was down to between 2 to 4 mgs of suboxone a day. My ins stopped paying for them so 3 weeks ago my doc switched me to zubsolv, telling me that it's the same even better.

Lexapro Brand versus generic escitalopram
145 Replies RSS
I have taken 30mg of Lexapro for past 4 years. After the deaths of my son and his wife in a plane crash the depression and anxiety were more than I could bear. This past May I was changed to the generic escitalopram. God Forbid!!!! What a nightmare. Within three weeks I was suicidal, I was going through SSRI withdrawals which are vicious. I am now paying over $225.00 per month for Brand Lexapro as my insurance will NOT cover it even with prior auth or any other reason. My Medicare Advantage plan leaves a lot to be desired even though I pay a $152.00 per month premium. Has anyone else had problems with the generic Lexapro? My pharmacist said I am not the first. ## I've been on Lexapro for 4+ years and got switched to generic as well. Initially the generic just didn't work (it was... ...

Hey I just moved from pa to ky and looking for a dr that will prescribe my oxycodone 30mg that I have been on for years.. I haven't had any luck finding a dr that will prescribe my meds.

can you ask a pharmacy for non-generic ambien
2 Replies RSS
My pharmacy gives me a different generic ambien almost every month. Can I ask for non-generic since I am paying without insurance? All of them work slightly different. Some hardly work at all. ## Hello, Jerry! How are you? Yes, you can do that. You can also ask your doctor to write the prescription as 'brand medically necessary' or whatever the equivalent is in your state. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, funny taste in mouth, sleep actions, hallucinations and next day hangover-like effects. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I wouldn't mind a generic ambein if i knew one that worked consistently. I read different opinions on all the generics. So would name brand be inconsistent also? I can n... ...

Every year we try to find an insurance company to help out with paying for these and they are way over our heads ## Purdue Pharma does have a patient assistance program, that may be able to help you, but only if you have no other type of prescription insurance. The other criteria include that you must be a U.S. resident and have an income at, or below 200% of the federal poverty level. His doctor would need to request an application and there are sections that both the doctor and patient have to sign, the doctor then sends the application with a prescription attached. If you meet the eligibility criteria, the medication will be shipped to your home. To get the application for the program, his doctor can call them at 1-800-599-6070.

rx refill
1 Reply RSS
Is it the insurance or pharmacy who decides if an early refill is ok? I'm talking 3-4 days early. ## That's a good question. I'd recommend double checking with your insurance company just to be sure... but I wanna say that it probably is the insurance who has the say, if they are the one's paying for it. Some policies I've heard of actually state that you can't get a refill until you're at least 75% through your prescription. And apparently that is calculated/determined from the date you first got it filled. 3-4 days early sounds like it fits comfortably above that margin, so you may be just fine, depending on the type of insurance you have. I'd imagine that other companies policies could also be a lot different as well. I hope this helps! ...

How much are you paying for a 30 day supply of Spiriva? just trying to get an idea of general costs of this drug. ## Based on my research, the average price point for a 30 day supply of Spiriva is right around the $300 mark. Although, I'd imagine that prices may vary depending on one's location, insurance, and probably a number of other factors as well. I'd also keep in mind that there are plenty prescription drug discount cards and patient assistance programs out there that can help save you a nice chunk of change at the time you go in to fill your script.

I'm hoping someone has any sort of knowledge they can add here. I am currently on Workmans Comp and the claim is active. The WC insurance company has been paying for me to see my pain management Dr. and meds he prescribes for 6 months now. Initial visit I was prescribed 80 15mg Roxicodone. By the third visit he upped my count to 120. Delaware Medicare/Medicaid is starting a New law stating "Medicare/Medicaid patients who are being treated for Non-Cancerous Chronic pain are limited to 240 15mg Oxycodones per year and/or 60 30mg Oxycodone per year beginning March 1, 2012".
