Common Questions and Answers about Generic adderall cost no insurance

adderall

Can any one please tell me how much the Generic form of regular 20 mg's and Aderral xr 30 is now. I have recently decided to go back on meds with no insurance,, I am in California and I heard it is still quite expensive,, thank you.
Bad news is that my insurance has never approved Provigil but my doctor always had a plenty of samples for me. Now, no more samples. Has anyone tried the generic Provigil? I've been given the new Nuvigil to try for a week. If that also works then we will fight my insurance company for that. Just checking to see if anyone has tried the new medicine or the generic form.
I understand it is less expensive, insurance is more likely to cover the cost, and it works in some sort of new, improved way. I would ask the doctors about this ....
The only thing I know about Adderall is that it is no longer available as a generic. The company that held the original patent bought the company that made the generic...thus no more generic. So right now, that is my big beef. If I have to bring my son in every month, well yes that will be a big pain in the you know what. I hope it is not true. I guess I will find out soon enough.
Must be a difference in insurance companies. Mine paid for Provigil, Ritalin, you name it--all without any diagnosis. It's crazy, though--my insurance pays hundreds of dollars a month for my Strattera--two 40-mg pills.
You may need to try one of the other meds used for fatigue, like amantadine or Adderall or Ritalin. Also, it would be a good idea to investigate why the fatigue is worse. As mentioned above, it might be a new relapse. You should have a CBC and a urinalysis to check for signs of infection - the most common cause of a new relapse. Or you may be getting worse sleep. A sleep study might be beneficial. Also have your thyroid checked.
A few months ago I got 60 pills of generic Ritalin IR 10mg with no insurance and it cost me around $30-$50. (which is cheaper than getting insurance and probably also cheaper than Concerta). But the cost probably depends on the brand, some brands probably cost less or more.
Again, Union Laborer Insurance....AdderallXR 20mg....but I get generic...1458.00, Viibyrd 40mg...458.00, no generic, Xanax, generic version, 412.00 .5mg...Combivent inhaler, 379.00....believe me,....even CVS questions me when I get these drugs,,,they ALWAYS ask me if I know what & how much they are. So now...my Behavioral Dr. charges 200.00 for visit, then another 200.00 just to write these prescriptions for me.....I guess the legality. The Union pays 100% of my scripts up to 5000.
I've been quoted 33% copay (tier 4) by my drug insurance company which is over $300 for me The online sources I've contacted no longer cover provigil since the generic came out and the generic is about the same price... Looking for financial assistance sources if anyone knows of any thanks!
Unfortunately, my insurance now has a high deductible and the Concerta, even generic, is no longer affordable. He is currently diagnosed with ADHD and there is a possible diagnosis of PDD in the future (further evaluation is required). I was wondering if anyone can tell me their experiences with the Plain Methylphenidate and also the whole "taking multiple doses" a day rather than one pill a day.
smart move I am on adderall n afraid to get off I'd rather suffer with adhd , once your son gets older let him choose if he wants to stay on pills but really enforce the idea of no adderal , desoxy , dexidrine or any ritalin/methyl w/e and obviously all their generic names like amphetamine.
Hi Kathy I had the same problem with my insurance paying for the Provigil.. It would have cost me over $300 a month. $10 a pill , I bought three to see what they were like. I only took a half of one and felt strange, so I knew it wasn't for me. The next thing I tried was Ritalin . That made me very tense and sort of angry and some tachycardia.. now I'm on Adderall RX and its just right :). I started out with 5mg because of my rapid heart rate worries .
But a few months ago, I started on an off-label prescription of generic Adderall for my fatigue, and it's been a huge help. While it still isn't covered by my insurance since I don't have ADD/ADHD, I discovered that by buying it at Costco, it got the price for a month's supply down to $23 (after paying $60/month for several months at my regular pharmacy!), which is higher than my $10/month co-pay for generics, but well worth it.
On Provigil I could only tolerate a small dose (had to cut the pill down - with permission from my doc). Provigil is more expensive than Nuvigil and many insurance companies won't cover Provigil. The drug company lowered the cost of Nuvigil to get people to switch. My week long testing of Nuvigil has been fantastic. It has greatly improved my mental cognition. I thought I was "fine" on Provigil but on day one of Nuvigil I immediately saw a difference.
If there is no difference in the effectivness of generic and brand...why does the brand cost as much as it costs? I have seen numerous neurologists and had tried all the generic with basically the same negative results...a hangover and experiencing a sureal feeling...even to the point of falling resulting in a head injury along with hip and knee injuries...all attributable to the generic. As it has been explained to me by the neurologists is that the filler is the key.
Now my prescription insurance is balking about paying for Provigil and requires preauthorization! What the heck is that, except another bureaucratic hurdle to scare off the faint of heart, or the weary. It seems to me that a prescription *IS* a preauthorization, for heaven's sake. If a doctor doesn't want a patient to get whatever substance, he or she won't prescribe it. I've been through this before, and it's maddening. Not surprised, though.
When Provigil's patent expires in two years, generics of this drug will hit the market. The cost will definitely plunge. There will be NO generic for Nuvigil until 2023. By getting us to use Nuvigil now, and insisting to our doctors that this is what we want, Cephalon will be sure to have another 25 years of big $$$$$. They are just protecting their market share. The free month's supply offer is just another lure to hook us! We sure do love FREE even if it will cost us more later.
It took a while for my insurance to approve the testing which I believe was submitted at a cost of $750.00. I will honestly tell you that I believe the neuropsych testing didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. And it revealed a few things that I didn't want to know. After going over the results with the psychologist I felt humiliated and about an inch tall. It's now official and in writing.
Now I have serious problem again with depression and suicidal thoughts. I don't know what I am going to do now. How can a generic drug cost so much. My thyroid medication is only $4 with any insurance. Nobody in the insurance companies really care about mental health issues nor do the government until someone kills someone then they are all talk and no action.
By kicking disabled vets over to Medicare, the private health insurance is saving untold amounts of money. Most disabled vets have families, so carry private health insurance and i am sure we cost them billions. So now we are passed off to the taxpayers and they save billions. The next time u hear a politician stand up saying how Medicare is going broke, laugh at them because they are the ones who have driven it there. Now my opinion is it was deliberate, a win-win for them.
My experience w/anti-depressants (AD)......on one kind or another for 10 yrs! A long.....time. I am 117 days clean (off hydros & soma) and have been off antidepressants for that long as well. I just decided I hadn't really given my seratonin levels a chance to level out.....or see what they are.....or would be like without a reuptake med for an extremely long time. I'd like to find out. I have days when my atrophied muscles, slow physical progress & stamina really depress me.
Strangely, though, when I switched between stimulant medications--from generic Dextrostat to generic Adderall--the strange side-effects of the thyroid medication go away. I get sensitivities to lots of things--meds that don't work often not only do not help, but make me feel anxious.
it said to stop worrying, get off your butt and enjoy life. no sides, no cost and can be taken anytime. i love it. good luck as i know what depression is. bobby ps,one other side i have is having to ask my wife if we got the mail today already or if we had lunch yet???
Also insurances hate it and since it's a narcotic, you have to jump through extra hoops to get your prescription and get it partially paid for with insurance. My grandma and mom also swear that generic Ritalin doesn't work as well as the real stuff. But with that little warning aside, Provigal is much better with less side effects although no one could tell me how addictive it is.
Adderall is cheaper and many insurance companies won't cover provigil/nuvigil unless you have narcolepsy. Adderall is addictive, though. But that's still better than not being functional. I am sorry you're struggling. I know the feeling! You can help your body by eating as healthy as possible, avoiding chemicals, processed foods, and sugar as much as possible. It really does make a difference. Sugar and saturated fat have both been shown to suppress the immune system.
How in the *world* did you afford 30 days worth of treatment at a facility!!?? We have no insurance and zero extra funds for something like that. You are VERY lucky to be able to afford something like that.
Now my right foot is swelling, too. I don't have health insurance so I have no idea in what kind of general health I'm in. After reading everyone's posts I will be slowing down my coca cola addiction and also limiting my bread intake to twice per week. I will begin walking tomorrow morning. This is scary stuff. I am not stupid. I know that I eat very unhealthy. I guess I just didn't want to think about it as I was doing it. I just lost my sister-in-law and she was 500 lbs.
needless to say, the aftermath of the tornado was pretty bad. What scares me is getting older and older, being a single Mom, no real family support, etc., what will become of me and is it going to lead to dementia or something like my Grandmother? If I can get stable (which I am more now than EVER!), I will be able to make it, but I don't want to end up in an institution. I bottomed out at the end of 38, so I can relate.
