Medication copay

My 7 year old is on strattera 25 mg With my new ins It is $71 a month for 30 days. Does anyone have an other options to get my sons meds cheaper? I filled it at Walmart I'm thinking about calling the ins & the manufacturer. I'm not changing his pills Its a non stimulant and works well with him.

  • You could see if you are able to fill it thru mail order. A lot of the time, you get 3 months for the cost of 2 months, which would save you. Or you could see if there is a generic available. Otherwise, I can't think of anything. Some manufacturers will help with the cost, but if you have ins that covers it, even if it's still expensive, they won't help. Good luck!

  • Wow, that's expensive. My co-pay is always $20. Good luck!
