Why would prevacid cost that much when it's $20 OTC?

Quoting mom2ljh:

When my son was on Prevacid, it was $422/month. We paid $9. We are both on TamiFlu now...$250 each. Our company's went up so we paid $17 each. I'm thankful to have insurance. Many prescription drugs are outrageous.

Yes it is!! I take glyburide and when I was between insurances, I paid almost $600/mo. My lancets were cheap, but test strips were sooo expensive!

You have to have tried and failed ambien for at least 3 nights. Then they will pay for lunesta. And there's copay cards that will bring the cost to less than $30 a month.

Quoting MichLW69:

I was just prescribed Lunesta and w my insurance, it's $217. I don't need to sleep that much - it would give me insomnia just paying that amount ea month. So, I'll be calling my dr tomorrow to see if there's an alternative bc Lunesta doesn't have a generic.

Yes. It doesn't work. I'm so unbelievably stressed that I can't sleep. I only get 4 hrs taking a sleeping pill.

Have you tried melatonin?

My test strips weren't. A combo of everything I needed and the insulin when I needed it was $600.
