I decided to check round some of the online chemists. I found Boots had Gabapentin at 5.00 for 100 ( 100mg ) so I put in an order.

They phoned while I was out & told my husband they could not take the order online because the VAT for human use & animal use was different, but they could accept phone orders.

The next day 100 capsules arrived in the post. Price 5.66. Even better than Hyperdrugs 12.30.

That's a fantastic price - they have dropped so much, I think I was paying about 28 for 100 only about 3 - 4 years ago :shock:

That is a great price! Here in the US, I pay $15.00 for ninety 100 mg capsules at Costco.

I know this is an old thread but wanted to bump it to ask what people are paying now? Also for Zitac [Cimetidine] - being lazy to save me contacting lots of chemists!! [gives me more time for fundraising for Rupert's Fund :)]

Thanks for the information, Margaret - that's a very good price and every little helps (having just spent 90 having a grass seed removed from Oliver's ear!). How do Boots deal with prescriptions - is it the same as Hyperdrug, you order over the phone and then send the prescription?

Wow -- missed this originally; we would pay probably 10 times that much in Ireland. Might take my prescription to the UK next month when I am over.

Some people in the UK are paying 1 a tablet for gabapentin! A friend of a friend whose 8-year-old with SM started having almost continuous fits was put to sleep and Ren passed on her unused tablets to me for Oliver. Her vet (in England) had charged her 50 for 50 tablets! I told her if she ever needed gabapentin again to look on the internet - though then of course her vet could charge her a fortune for the prescription!

At Walgreens, I pay $12 for 270 100mg capsules. Though you do need to sign up for their savings club which cost $20 a year, but that's still really cheap.

That's a great price... Sam's Club has gone up to $30 for 90 pills. There is a Walgreen's right around the corner from me!
