My insurance does not cover the Deplin L-Methylfolate and I am trying to see if I can find a generic form or a discounted way to purchase it. It really helps with depression and just my overall well-being! I have not had it filled again due to the price. :-(
This is a complicated question. Here is an answer that was provided on this site in 2009:
My research says that answer makes it sound as complicated as it really is. The conversation needs to be with your doctor. The compounds are similar, but are not exactly the same. Your doctor will have to determine exactly how to handle the dosing, etc.
The drug company has coupons for those who are under insured or with no insurance. After speaking with your doctor, I would contact the drug company for assistance.
Deplin contains L-methylfolate, the active form of folic acid.
Deplin is made by Pamlab, LLC
4099 Highway 190 East Service
Covington, LA 70433
I suggest you contact them and explain your situation, perhaps they may be able to help you.
Best of luck,
