I have been on Ambien 12.5 ER for about 3 years and have had no problems. Just turned 65 and found out that Medicare Part D insurance won't cover at all without Prior Authorization and then only for 90 days a year. I have anxiety problems and do not want to try alternatives which are more expensive than Ambien would be if they approved it. I also just learned that you can't use discount cards or coupons if you are over 65. I was wondering if there was any other way to make this more affordable.
Dctmeds; None that I know of and be very careful about pharmacies that say your getting a discount the bottom line is how much is coming out of your pocket. Some stores well say they are giving a 20% discount because of senior etc and say you pay 35.00 dollors for it, But accross the street at another Pharmacy they are selling the same thing and quanity for $22.50 there is no such thing as a prescription discount because all stores charge what they want when it is not coverd by insurance.The best to do is call around to different stores and tell them you need a price on your prescription and have the name and quanity ready for them and you well be supprised at the price differences.You can even tell them you are a senior and see what happens. best of luck.SO SHOP IT.

My insurance co didn't want to pay for zolpidem any longer, I thought I would need to pay out of pocket. BUT happened to watch Dr Oz and his show was about cost of drugs. A fairly new company, named BLINK offers users to get drugs for much less. I did my homework and now pay Blink online, they give me a voucher which I show to my pharmacist and it's done. Look up your drug and compare prices, not all are offered at a lower price. Look up Blink, it's a step to get around the high price of drugs!
