My wife's physician recently prescribed Deplin for her depression. The insurance company says it is NOT medicine but a supplement and they will not cover it. The 7.5 mg was $150 for a 60 tablet supply. I got her switched to 15 mg tabs for half the money but we have to cut the pills. It appears that PanAmerican labs is ripping people off with their price.
The Average Wholesale Price is $2.60 a pill for that particular strength, for what it's worth, per Medispan.
With that said, this is not an atypical antidepressant. This is actually a supplement for low plasma or white blood cells. However, it has helped, often in conjunction, with personality disorders or depression. Not something that is common, but used especially when other more "formulary" medications don't work.
The unfortunate thing is, it often takes up to two months in order for it to "kick in." It's up to you to decide whether it's worth that or not.
Hello, Deplin used in conjuction with an antidepressant to augment the prowess of the antidepressant effect and performance. If you get an opportunity, to to the web site: www.needymeds.com and look under drug coupons there are some coupons for Deplin that will save you some money when purchasing it. I have heard from patients it works withoin days or over a period of months. Wish could be more specific, cindy
