... prices keep rising. HELP
We are all supposed to have health insurance. Here is the manufacturers assistance site, but I can tell you I would never pay for what they want for the brand, its ridicules. This is an old medication. I would certainly switch to generic and get the coupons online and go to the pharmacy that offers the best price. There can be a wide difference depending on pharmacy. You could get the generic at walmart for about 25.00. pfizerrxpathways.com/en/?step=1
This is one medication that the generic has been around for a long time, and the kinks are pretty much ironed out.
Your headline is ambiguous. You mention Gabapentin, and Neurotin. So which are you taking? The brand, or gabapentin? It should be on the label on the RX bottle.
I am assuming that you don't have insurance. Are you on Medicare?
There are so many things I don't know about you to offer any kind of advice.
Neurotin is manufactured by Pfizer. You can Google Pfizer to see if they have a discount plan to help you with your med costs. However, they do not cover the generic "gabapentin".
If you have no insurance, and cannot afford it, the what about Obama Care?
Isn't that what is supposed to help folks like you? The real name is "The Affordable Care Act". If you have a low income, the idea of the AFCA is to provide "free" insurance. You can always check that out first.
As I previously stated, you really didn't provide much information about yourself or your income, insurance, etc.. Please write back, and tell us what your situation is. We can help you so much better if we knew more about you.
Gabapentin is the generic of Neurontin. As the Dr. stated you cannot go any lower in cost. The generic is not very expensive. I am on 1800 Mgs. of Gabapentin a day. My prescription coverage expired and my new one does not go into effect until Feb. 1 and I just had to pick up 600 Mg. Gabapentin and it was $10.00 for 26 pills using the Drug.com discount card. If you don't have insurance, I would recommend using that. It really saved me. I would also recommend looking into whether the manufacturer has any prescription assistance programs. There are not any savings coupons available, I know because I looked for them myself. I wish you luck and hope you get some answers.
