Provigil generic cost

Common Questions and Answers about Provigil generic cost

provigil

hey Sarah provigil went generic now so maybe your insurance will cover it? I am taking 200mg I can half the pills .
I found out at the doctor's office today that Provigil is going generic. Good news/bad news. 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'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!
They say it saves quite a bit of money. The cost of generic drugs will drop even lower in Canada because the govt has ruled pharma co's can no longer offer kick-backs to pharmacies.....although I don't know how this works and how it will lower prices, but that's what the news said a few days ago. Lulu's right, it's got to be dangerous to order drugs through the internet. I could give you the 1-888 number of my pharmacist, but I don't know if they're allowed to ship to the US.
About two weeks ago I asked the pharmacist if switching to generic Provigil would reduce my copay. I was told my cost on Nuvigil and generic Provigil is the same --- 30 doses with a co-pay of $75. Enjoy your good fortune Lulu. Your insurance always seems to treat you well.
I believe it keeps me able to work, and therefore able to afford it! Provigil will be available as a generic in the next year or two. I expect that's why they are introducing the upgrade to Nuvigil. I don't think it would hurt to start with 50mg but I'm not sure it will do the trick. I'm a big fan of starting out small and working up though. It's always a good idea if you can get an early clue about how chemicals are going to act -or act up- in your individual body.
Go to the manufactors website of Provigil or just "google" Provigil and you should find the manufactor of the medication.
I just lost my health insurance and waiting for COBRA, however I know Provigil or even generic Modafinil will be outrageously expensive. Where do you buy Provigil or generic in Canada? This happened to me once before. I was spending around $800 or $1k on 1-30 supply of Provigil. I was running up credit card bills. My doctors did the best they could to get me free samples, etc.
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.
I have been prescribed Provigil for my fatigue and my insurance (state assistance) will not cover the cost. I asked the pharmacy how much it would be just to buy it and he said it cost 500.00 monthly. My question is if anyone knows of a prescription assistance program or an online pharmacy that I can get this medication for a cheaper price.
I have heard a lot of good things about things about provigil in treating depression if coupled with an antidepressent. Has anyone tried this? I am having a hard time functioning. Any help would be appreciated.
MY PCP HAD TO CALL AND EXPLAIN THAT I COULDN'T TAKE THE RITALIN AND THAT I NEEDED THE PROVIGIL. IT'S POLITICAL MUMBO-JUMBO ,BUT THEY PREFER A CHEAPER,GENERIC MED FIRST BEFORE A HIGH PRICED ONE. HANG IN THERE,PAST RECORDS SHOULDN'T BE NECCESARY,CONSTANT FATIGUE SHOULD OF BEEN ENOUGH. DARN INSURANCE COMPANIES. I WOULD ASK ABOUT THE EXPLANATION SENT TO THE INSURANCE CO,FATIGUE FROM CEREBRAL WHITE MATTER DISEASE.GEEZ THAT SHOULD OF BEEN ENOUGH INFO FOR THE INSURANCE COMPANY.
org/posts/Multiple-Sclerosis/Why-generic-MS-drugs-wont-be-cheap/show/1641782 A generic glatiramer acetate will likely appear far sooner than generic versions of any of the interferons. There are no generic drug modifiers at present. I don't think the Copaxone patent even expires until 2014. I assume Teva is in court now because wanna-be generic manufactures need to get the process started now if they hope to be in production for product release in 2014.
18 for 90 day supply I paid $100 Modafinil (Provigil generic) insurance paid $6,118.79 for 90 days of generic drugs I paid $20 It's not just the DMD's that are so priced out of range of people without insurance.
Provigil's patent does not expire until 2011 (?) - there will be no generic on the market for Provigil until after this date. Cephalon mfgs. Provigil. Nuvigil is the NU version of Provigil that Cephalon has developed that will be protected under patent law from generic versions until 2023. They are doing their best to get Provigil users to switch to Nuvigil over the next few years, protecting their market share and their profits.
What is the best way to get help paying for copaxone or is there a generic version that is less expensive? I was hoping to start taking it soon, but Im afraid I can't afford it. Also, has anyone taken the new oral version? Is it less expensive? I was advised not to use it but I certainly will if I can afford it. Plus, what are the other benefits of using copaxone othr than slowing down the formation of new lesions. Will I get my energy back? Will my concentration get better?
I've heard that the generic provigil isn't half what provigil is........but have filled out the paperwork for provigil, just haven't heard back from them yet, for assistance.
However, someone here pointed out that Nuvigil might just be a way the makers of Provigil have to keep Provigil users paying for Trade name drug a little longer (since Provigil will be going generic soon). However, you might consider just having your doctor order a few pills of Nuvigil to see if it could help you. Also, regarding the Provigil: Make sure its expiration date is a long time off. I have found that can make a difference - that it gets weaker with time.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION for anyone who is STARTING PROVIGIL OR NUVIGIL and ALREADY TAKING OTHER MEDICATION. Provigil, generic modafinil and Nuvigil are modest inhibitors of the CYP450 2C19 isoenzyme in the liver. They can cause an INCREASE in the plasma concentration of ANY DRUG that is primarily metabolized by CYP450 2C19. (**This is similar to the type of reaction we are cautioned about when eating grapefruit while taking some heart medications.
And see my post about the cost of the generic version of provigil - I hope it applies for you, too , and you get some relief from the costs.
I was reading those certifications and other things they have around the office. He prescribed me provigil, now I have to wait to see if it will be approved through my insurance. I asked at the pharmacy and they said it would cost me $864, that is nuts!!! I was just thinking that if insurance didn't cover it then maybe I could pay out of pocket for it. I also mentioned to him that I am in school and my concentration has gone to he**. It has been getting worse and worse but now it is crazy.
It's worth anything, if you can find one of these drugs that works for you. And - look into the generic for provigil - a pastor of mine at my church takes that and feels like he has a new lease on life. I hope you find something affordable and effective.
It would be great if that could help with my fatigue as well as help me lose weight, and cost a lot less than Provigil. Heck, I looked it up and it is also in the same class as amphetamines, and could raise my heart rate/BP. I'll ask how it compares to Ritalin as far as side effects. I think Ritalin reduces the appetite, too, and would cost me a small co-pay. I'm so sorry about your lower back pain; I'm seeing my physical therapist about mine today.
Insurance also might, if you are trying to get a tier exception for the name brand medication, recommend the generic or, if there is not a generic, some other drug that is cheaper in the same vein that they feel will do the same thing. You would have to prove why you can't take those other medications for them to grant you a tier exception (depends on the HMO).
She'll call in a new Rx if this works, with an increase in dosage. Also a $2.40 Rx, as opposed to what Provigil cost. I may have to switch back to Provigil for a day or two to get ready for my appt with my new rheumy; lots of records to get in order, and I haven't finished filling out the new-patient packet. So, there's a little update on my life.
My dr at the Methadone clinic gave me a script for Provigil 200 mg ( Generic name~Modafinil ), it comes in 100 and 200 mg. I looked it up on google and it is for narcolepsy, sleep apnea and plain ole sleep disorders like we have. Went to pharmacy and they said it really works for not feeling so tired and it is used by the military for pilots and suppose to help with short term memory ------ now where was i? It's high dollar, for 7 pills it was going to cost over $ 80.00 .
OK, so halfway through my running around yesterday (my 2nd day taking Provigil), I realized that my PT exercises had reallllllly aggravated my lower back, hip, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, and my knees. I spent time with an ice pack after my trip to Costco. The good news there was that gas was $2.07 a gallon. The bad news was that I had to sit in line a lonnnnnnnggggg time. I stayed in a good mood, even though my back and leg (radiculopathy) were starting to hurt pretty badly.
I'm not sure what you are going to find on the island to help - over here we often get provigil (modafinil is the generic) or Nuvigil. IF insurance won't cover the cost, then Adderall can be an option. I would talk to the doctor about the exhaustion and see what options you have for treatment. At least the heat should be down a bit in the islands - I hope you find your energy again, and soon!
Just a few more years and it will go generic! Also, having your MD order it in 200 mg pills and then taking half of a pill (100 mg) is usually the cheaper way to go. I have found that half a pill is enough for me!! Have you tried 100 mg?
I did some research reg. Provigil...they won't have a generic available 'til 2011! It cost over 300.00 a month. I can't afford it. My insurance 'script plan maxed out. Thanks for the info.
