Cymbalta cost without insurance

Common Questions and Answers about Cymbalta cost without insurance


480448 tn?1426952138 I definitely have secondary depression due to the anxiety, but that is not as bothersome as the anxiety itself. I'll mull it all over. The insurance/cost issue may come into play as we have pretty lousy insurance for prescriptions. Gotta love in the healthcare industry and have crappy insurance. The way of the world!!! :0) Thanks again for the insight, it is greatly appreciated!
Avatar m tn Due my health insurance more then tripling the cost of Cymbalta I have to change meds. I have been using Cymbalta for alomost four years, I am very concerned that my Doc wants to start me on 40mg of Prozac when I have been on 120mg of Cymbalta. Can I have your thoughts about 40mg vs. 120mg and what side affects I will have to go though.
Avatar n tn No I'm not crazy just been on Cymbalta.. Please google cymbalta withdrawal and see what you can find.. interesting reading on cymbalta sucks if you use that in google as well.. I'm down to half my dose and still unable to get off 48 hours without feeling VERY sick.. I started taking if because of neck pain and it was great for about 3 or so months but I realized I didn't feel sad OR happy.. so I decided to go off of it a few months later..
Avatar n tn When I refused to put that drug into my system again, she then suggesteed Cymbalta. And guess what, after reading all about Cymbalta, it seems that it is not much different from Effexor. ??? I'm not going there! I am taking matters into my own hands and staying off the antidepressants for the time being. I will ride out the withdrawal with the help of vitamins, xanax, water and time. The xanax seems to help relax, to sleep and just deal with the nuttiness a little more effectively.
Avatar m tn US physicians increasingly support a single-payer national health insurance system, according to the results of a survey reported online January 29 in the Journal of General Internal Medicine. “Many politicians may mistakenly believe that single-payer national health insurance lacks support among key stakeholders such as doctors,” lead author Danny McCormick, from Harvard Medical School and Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), said in a news release.
Avatar f tn I have been struggling to find a good pain medication or any medication that will help me to get through the day without feeling as fatigued and exhausted. I have tried a number of medications including cymbalta, ultram, a medication for arthritis and many others. My question is, is what medication would be the most effective for me and cost efficient as well. I am limited to my resources at this time because I do not currently have health insurance.
Avatar f tn she wants me to go to a rheumatologist but the only one in my city does not accept my insurance. So I cant get anything for anxiety or pain....
Avatar n tn I dont know what type of meds you take for yourself, but sometimes the doctors have samples that they can give you for free. I had to do this when I did not have insurance. They gave me cymbalta for free. One question for you though. I currently take avinza 60 mg twice a day so I know how expensive it is. Almost impossible to have without insurance. Does your husband find that it is an effective pain killer.
Avatar n tn and i agree, i was somewhat confused as well and thats because the generic lamictal at the pharmacy i work at is only $4 for a quanity of 30 without insurance. oddly, many insurances we try to run this through say in needs prior authorization...essentially it just isn't covered and we run it for cash. the rejection can often be mistaken though since it doesn't simply say "not covered" i'm not suggesting the pharmacy you're going to is wrong in assuming it needs a PA...
Avatar f tn I will call and talk to them. Does insurance usually help with the cost of the tests? What exactly are they looking for? How long were you in Cleveland? I'm still trying to find someone in Virginia that knows how to manage these type of conditions and is specializing in them.
Avatar n tn My neuro says I have MS but won't start DMDs until there is more lesion activity because he said my insurance won't pay the cost of the meds without more proof. I do know there are people on here that have been dx'd with only one lesion, so either insurance has changed or doctors are more scared to dx without solid proof. I am sorry you are going through this. Maybe you could request an MRI on a stonger machine. I am not sure what telsa the machine was for your first MRI but it could help.
1749731 tn?1362100113 I never realized how much my meds helped until I had to go without. I hate that insurance won't even cover fertilty testing until I've neen TTC for at least a year. A full year of this hell??!!! I don't know how I can do it. What if I'm not even able to have a baby?! I have to wait 8 more months to find out? Every month I'm not pregnant is a month I'm suffering unnecessarily. How did you cope with the ocd without meds? Do you have any advice for me?
Avatar m tn I then looked into other assistance programs, but they require enrollees to be without insurance, and giving up my health insurance is just not practical. So I then considered drug discount cards and the best deal I could find was a 10% discount, a cost that is still too prohibitive. So I am left with the real possibility of either using what little savings I have to cover this medication, until my savings are exhausted, or to go without one of the only medications I've found that helps me.
230843 tn?1200201355 My insurance does pay for it. It was kind of like this forum, but with faces to names and talking to each other in person. I am expecting to learn a lot about how I got here and continue on my road of recovery. I just wanted to tell you all about it and encourage anyone out there who might be thinking about something this this. I think it really can be an aid in recovery.
Avatar n tn I cannot make it through a job interview let alone a meal without breaking into an uncontrollable sweat, so finding a job and waiting for insurance is not an option. I'm done explaining to potential employers why I'm having a total meltdown and not a risk to hire, I can only imagine what they're thinking, like I might drop dead in the middle of the interview.
Avatar n tn If your wife is employed and offered group coverage TAKE it no matter what the cost. with your pre-exsisting conditions you are not going to find personal insurance. I have had 3 spine surgeries and all after I searched far and wide for the best physician.
1351082 tn?1479843732 I have no insurance and with the above tests it has cost me thousands. If I had insurance I would have gone to a rhuem. My internal med Dr wants me to go to a Pain Dr. (anesthesiologist) but its expensive and I dont know what he can do I dont want drugs thats no a option I want someone to know what it is and fix it. Every second of my life is this tight burning pain in the left front of my chest and I feel every beat of my heart. I am not a anxious person so I know its not that.
Avatar m tn Taking depakote and cymbalta. Treated with acyclavar. Flaviclover. Prednisone. Hydrocodone. Neurontin.All otcs. Magnalife shingles cream. Capsasion cream. Tea tree oil. Hot/cold compress. Meditation. License massage. Had migrane for three days went tonimmediate care they.gave naproxen. Said.ive been perscribed a lot of narcotics lately. I agree. But naproxen does nothing for pain and a little for migrane. Befor that went to er recommended pain doc. He gave lyrica and lipoderm patch.
172715 tn?1285498090 Like Cymbalta makes me nauseous so with Ritalin it feels like morning sickness all the time! I am hoping it goes away though just like when I first started the Cymbalta without the ritalin.
Avatar f tn I plan to get Endoscopic Spine Surgery next year after we buy our home. It will cost $70,000 and my insurance covers $60,000 so I will have to finance $10,000. But it is so worth it to have piece of mind that the surgery has a high chance of being successful at eliminating most or all of my pains. I would consider getting a nerve conduction study completed to see how extensive the nerve damage is to know whether or not you are at risk for paralysis or not.
1336491 tn?1340623141 A few months ago I cracked a tooth from biting which cost $1500 dollars to fix, my in insurance would not pay for it. My dentist made me a bite guard my insurance won't pay for but it is worth it. At first I gagged and though I would never get used to it now I use it all the time. I find it also helps with some of the face pain I have experienced. Tendonitis from the jaw. My dentist is amazed because I never have the same bite twice. They had a hard time making impressions for the crown.
Avatar n tn I was on EffexorXR 150mg for two years. It seemed to be working good, but my one close freind said I acted "strangely" to her since I had been on the drug. Not having insurance, Effexor XR is quite pricey, $150 + a month and I had felt it was time to get off the drug. I had been reading (and crying while I read) other peoples experiences stopping Effexor. My doctor put me on a slow three month withdraw program. and I can say I am day #2 off EffexorXR!
Avatar f tn doctor is suggesting it, so I WOULD be able to switch, without worrying about the cost. The P.M. doctor only mentioned the weight gain, and on too much the walking into walls! Please give me a few things I MIGHT run into! thanks in advance!
Avatar n tn For me, the symptoms lists sounded alot like what Cymbalta did to me. Some do well on Cymbalta; some don't. It (Cymbalta) was a nightmare for me, and yes, I also believe it brought on a real uptick in just about uncontrollable anger (even tho I was really sick with fibro and a really bad, long acute Epstein Barr experience and other personal events).
Avatar m tn I've been on narcotics for the last 3 years because nothing else was helping with the pain. Without the medication I would not be able to function and have a life at all. So I've already gone down that road. As far as the stem cell therapy, I've got to continue to do research about it. It's not covered by insurance and is expensive. Not sure how expensive because my doctor couldn't give me a ball park number due to the fact he wasn't sure how much volume he would have to use.
Avatar m tn so then i went to my primary care doctor who knew about my surgeries and he agreed to help until i found pain management with my insurance he gave me 30 mg ir oxycodone because my prescription plan no longer covered oxy 80mg...there are no doctors who just want to give me that strength of medications they want to do tests and surgeries to make money, but since not one of them want to touch my back because its too dangerous i couldnt get another doctor...
306867 tn?1299253309 cake mix and icing cost under 3 dollars if you make it yourself. I wonder if running the oven for a half hour to cook it is saving money ? I'm not ready to give up dessert.
Avatar m tn I used to use the Ambien CR and that did a much better job of that, however, my insurance no longer covers the CR and since there is no generic for that one, it is cost prohibitive for me, so I stick with the "regular" Ambien. Have you talked to your doctor about trying a sleep aid? It's not uncommon for fibro patients to need them - insomnia is a HUGE part of fibro/cfs.
