My physician is looking to prescribe either Qsymia or Belviq. I would prefer Qsymia as the results seem better and side effects less, but it's almost double Belviq.
My insurance doesn't cover anything in this category so it's $234 cash price; with the $75 discount from Qsymia only goes down to $159 for a 30 day supply.
Is this what most of you are paying if insurance doesn't cover? Are there other discounts or ways of reducing the cost that I'm missing?
Any help is appreciated!

Hi. Just took my first prescription for the 30 day supply of the 7.5mg/46 to my regular pharmacy which is CVS pharmacy. Had the card for the $75 discount. My insurance, which is Blue Cross/Blue Shield, does not cover this drug. I thought I could at least get the $75 discount but according to CVS, the catch is if the insurance does not cover the drug, then the $75 discount card can not be used so I would have to pay the whole amount-$228.00 plus tax. Plus they have to order the whole 30 day supply for me.
I did find Osco drug nearby that would cost $187.96 for the 30 days and they would let me buy 1 week for $46.99 to start to try to see if I tolerate it. I'd hate to spend all that money for the whole supply and find out I couldn't take it for some reason. I will keep calling around and try to call the Qsymia phone on Monday to see if they have any other assistance they can offer.
