Where to Buy Lyrica?
Ok, those of you with Cavaliers on Lyrica in the US, where are you buying it? We are picking up 60 (25 mg) pills at Walgreen's today for $201.00 but I think in reality, we are going to need at least 3/day which means 90 pills. I just called CostCo and it's $300/90 pills. Is it cheaper anywhere??? These prices are crazy. I know the patent is up in Oct but the pharmacist said it will likely go down about 10% at that time and in March go down to a more manageable price. Suggestions? I do have some filled from Diamondback Compounding Pharmacy that was much cheaper, but it's the generic Pregabalin, made in India, I believe, and it's not FDA approved so I have been worried about using it. I can't seem to get an answer from anyone as to where they buy their Lyrica. Help!
I can't really help you as I live in Ireland, but from a cost perspective, I've discovered it doesn't seem to matter what strength you buy, the cost per pill is the same. There is a shortage of Lyrica here at the moment - for pets anyway - I've had to buy Bosco's from the human pharmacy as my vet can't get it for me.
Holly - remember when we were discussing this with Carol and she recommended getting a larger size and splitting the dose? I've done that with many drugs (esp. sildenafil/Viagra, enalapril before it was generic and even pimobendan capsules because I needed an odd dosage) and this can save a good deal of money. I use East Marietta compounding pharmacy, and they charged a very minimum amount (I think $15) to split several bottles of pimobendan capsules for me. I split tablets myself. I was happy to let the compounding pharmacy do the division as it seemed to be more accurate. I can't remember if the drug comes in capsules or tablets. I'm sorry I didn't remember to mention that when we spoke last night, but the post above reminded me.
