I pay 10-20 bucks w/o insurance just cash. its insame how much people take advantage of people in need of medication
I know this an older question, but I wanted to post for others who might be having the same issues paying for their prescriptions. If you are in need of the medication (Ambien) right away, Target has an unadvertised savings card which brought the cost from about $90 for a 30 day supply to around $17. You simply have to ask for it. The only requirement is that you are uninsured or under insured. Personally, I am on disability, therefore I have Medicare and there are quite a few medications that they won't pay for, and I can the medicines that aren't covered by Medicare through Target's savings plan.
If you don't need your medicine right away, there is an amazing site called needymeds.org which typically goes by your income. Each medication or manufacturer has a different requirement, but they will usually get your meds to you for free for a year if you are uninsured and meet certain income guidelines. They have been a lifesaver to me! Hope this information can help someone!
wow... if you have insurance, DEFINITELY get a script for it... copay is like $5-$30 i believe. otherwise if you have insurance, get a script for ANY sleep meds (xanax included if you need something that strong but low dosage; careful of interactions of other drugs if u are on them though!!)
if no insurance, try Unisom & double up on label dosage as I have (again b careful of interaction w/other meds)...
hope this helped, -Anna :)
