I take blood thinners and whenever I have any kind of surgical procedure, I have to go off the reg blood thinners and use the Enoxaparin sodium shots. Well, I've just fallen into my prescrpt coverage gap and the shots will now cost me over $800.00. Is there a cheaper substitute?
No there is not as this is the generic. However this does not make sense. For 30-80/0.8mL injections at CVS they should cost $1,610.03; Giant = $1,464.96; and Walgreens long-term = $990.20. So for 10 shots it should cost you $537, $488, or $330. You should shop around the pharmacies in your area and see where you can get the best pricing. Your other option is to see if the manufacturer of Lovenox would accept you into one of their programs to help pay for the medication. Your doctor would have a write a script with no generic substitution if they will help you. The brand is better than the generic for this medication anyway. Good luck.
