They don't make a generic form for it just yet so the drug company makes it expensive. You may go to this link and see if they can help you get it cheaper. http://www.bms.com/products/Pages/programs.aspx If not you may want to ask your doctor to recommend something else to replace it due to finances. Although this is a good med to try it really did make me feel normal really quickly.
