I have been waiting to get Lyrica prescription from my doctor. He finally agreed and sent in the request. Now my pharmacist says we have to pay $275.00 a month. That’s just more than we can afford. We are retired and even with my husbands part time job and Soc Security, that’s too much. Humana is our Medicare supplemental insurance.
Are there any special discounts or vouchers or any help available from the manufacturer?
Go to your app store and download “GoodRx”. You can probably get it cheaper this way. And, it’s free!💕
Lyrica is very costly. I have blue cross and when I was taking it , it still has a 100.00 a month. I no longer take it. I had terrible side effects from it.
For me it further impacted by cognative/dizzy. Since I take Immunosuppression I have enough of those things already. Also for me, it did not provide much relief - Cymbalta was the same for me. Spaced out beyond the "normal" space I live in lol.
I found Gabapentin just did not do anything after going off then back on. Was curious after being on it so long so only way I could find out.
Narcotics would be my pain solution but I will not take those, very bad for people especially a person with an organ transplant.
Was not on it long.
If I can afford it, and tolerate it - and it provides any relief = I would try anything.
The prescription assistance program does work great. I was on it for several years before I got disability and Medicaid. It does take alittle effort to get started but its not too bad after that. Good luck.
