after considerable research, i believe there is no generic for it. and the brand is pricey for sure. i got some sample bottles from my doc and have been on it along with pristiq for 4 days. its too early for the prisiq to kick in, but deplin goes to work in your body right away. today is the first day i actually feel like my old normal self. its amazing. and if this streak continues i am going to do a formal appeal to my insurance to put it in their formulary, or at least propose that they pay for some of it. generally here in WA, its about $100 for a months supply.
Just now hearing about this drug, and I'm willing to try anything. Amazon has a listing for what's called "Methyl-life Supplements" for $77 for 90 tablets at 15 mg per tablet. I'd consider buying it, especially if I knew it already worked, as in the case of PRBmom. Just thought I'd add that to the ideas.
There is a generic version for Deplin. They're $80 where I'm from. Not sure how effective it is as my doctor said that the Deplin brand version is manufactured using some nanotechnology they created so the generic may not be the same. I always thought that by law the generics need to have the same formulations as he brands. Any thoughts? Thanks.
I know this is an old question but, like most people, i am currently seeking ways to get Deplin at a more reasonable price. Here is what i know:
1. Deplin is considered a FOOD, not a medicine, and this is why most insur plans won't cover it.
2. There is an online pharm called Brand Direct Health (BDH) which provides Deplin for no more than $58/month. Three mo's cost around $174. This was recommended by my doc. Here's the thing: i called and ordered it and found the company to be EXTREMELY dysfunctional. I called 3 times over several weeks and they never could find my information or an order. BUT: I think if you want to be on their case (and call OFTEN) you can get going. And, if you sign up for auto refill i'm guessing you won't have any trouble. Advantage: they have a pmt option with no interest if you order the 3 month option.
3. My other doc told me that Walmart carries it. I haven't explored this but my doc said it was cheaper.
4. If i find out more i'll put out a new post.
