Common Questions and Answers about Much does cymbalta cost without insurance


Avatar f tn I even weaned off off of the Fentanyl patch without too much difficulty but going off of Cymbalta has been hell!!! I have been reading that there are numerous law suits being filed against LILY because they did not disclose the severe withdrawal. Most patients go back to Cymbalta because they just cannot live without it. Even if you wean very slowly you continue to have severe side effects for months.
Avatar n tn i havent taken it yet beacause i am still fighting off a nasty virus so im gonna wait till im done with my meds from what i have now and then im gonna start on the cymbalta. my question is if any one has taken or does take it how does it work. any bad side affects???. how fast does it work?? any thoughts are great thanks..
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.
1412606 tn?1282885729 ) I trust my doctors implicitly but I also learn so much from this board. I just find that the support I get here helps me as much as my medication does. In addition to the medications, I also use lidoderm patches, 800 mg. of Advil several times a day, and I have a lotion from a compounding pharmacy. In the past I've tried Lyrica, Neurontin and Cymbalta for nerve pain, but none of those seemed to help. Every couple of months I get a stellate ganglion block for the nerve pain.
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 am not completely stable...but much more so then I was 5 years ago without meds. But anyway, yes I do believe it progresses with age.
Avatar n tn It's available over the counter, but (in my case) a prescription of 800mgs is better and more cost effective, provided you have insurance that covers such frivelous things as "medicine". Here's to your brighter future.
Avatar n tn Yes, without exception with every medication there are some hellish stories associated. Different people have various tolerances and sensitivities. One person can take 10mg of Valium and feel alert, awake, aware and unaffected, another person can take 1mg of Valium and be so drowsy they cannot function or stay awake.
Avatar n tn He is the local specialist in the area and I must get a referral to see him but he does not want to see me because of the blood test results. Last time I called, the nurse said that as long as my numbers are so low, I have nothing to worry about. Should I look for another doctor or call and insist on more attention or be happy and trust that the virus is inactive? I don't understand the test and I never received any of the results, only over the phone.
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 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. I havent noticed any relief from it so far and I have been taking it for about 3 months.
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.
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 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.
Avatar n tn I am a 36 year old Caucasian male, it has taken my current doctor 2 years to diagnosis my hyperthyroidism but I have been suffering from this condition for much, much longer than that. I am unemployed and have no insurance, I have been told this is why it has taken so long to diagnosis. I had my blood tested three times, twice by my regular doctor and once by the endocrinologist to confirm this condition.
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.
Avatar m tn Have you tried to talk to your old GP to see if they can take small payments until you get back on your feet. And also Lyrica doesn't come in generic but nuerontin does so its much cheaper. My husbands cost around $35 for 120 pills, plus if you have AAA, they offer discounts as well, and Sams club is pretty reasonable with their prices and you don't have to be a member to use their pharmacy, and also maybe ask for "samples" too.
1351082 tn?1479843732 I have no insurance and with the above tests it has cost me thousands. If I had insurance I would have gone to a rhuem. My internal med Dr wants me to go to a Pain Dr. (anesthesiologist) but its expensive and I dont know what he can do I dont want drugs thats no a option I want someone to know what it is and fix it. Every second of my life is this tight burning pain in the left front of my chest and I feel every beat of my heart. I am not a anxious person so I know its not that.
172715 tn?1285498090 Like Cymbalta makes me nauseous so with Ritalin it feels like morning sickness all the time! I am hoping it goes away though just like when I first started the Cymbalta without the ritalin.
Avatar f tn doctor is suggesting it, so I WOULD be able to switch, without worrying about the cost. The P.M. doctor only mentioned the weight gain, and on too much the walking into walls! Please give me a few things I MIGHT run into! thanks in advance!
Avatar n tn This site wouldn't be here without them. We have created this site as many of us have unanswered questions about Tramadol. We come from different parts of the world on the Tramadol support site....many, of course, in the US and UK. If you'd like to identify your country, it would help when we look at your laws, for example.
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Morning Tram Warriors! I just finished reading the last thread and I'm still laughing about fullmetalalchemist learning to spell "$ucks" without medhelp blocking out that word. I got blocked and stars thru that word so many times as I was recovering! Because it does suck. Yes. It *****. Good to see we worked thru it after all this time. :D I just love you guys! Such honesty and kindness and willingness to help. It's such a blessing!
425312 tn?1279969779 If you find yourself having some anxiety the amino L-theanine is like natural valium.. It has helped me so much I no longer need to take xanax at all for my panic attacks As far as sleep.. in my early days off of pills I took a sleep blend from GNC with a L-theanine and calcium magnesium liquid everynight and slept like a baby. I suggest GNC to purchase this stuff they are pretty cheap (some stuff is only 4.99 a bottle) they were also super helpful and knew alot..
Avatar m tn I tried going without a while ago because I was sick of the pain meds but the pain was unbearable and I could not function at all. I also was on Cymbalta a while ago and it didn't do much of anything for me. I'm continuing to do research on the stem cell therapy because that's what my docs want me to do. My spine doctor was very clear that he has not used it for cases like mine, only on ligamental issues.
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 do take Ambien at night and some nights it does help me to fall asleep faster, but it doesn't help much to KEEP me asleep. 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?
1692614 tn?1306170922 Tried other anti-depressants, but they only made me suicidal (cymbalta was horrible). After chemo had alot of joint aches and pain, and test showed RA level evevated. Dr. said I have symptoms of fibromyalgia. Anti-inflamitory medication causes severe pain in my kidney area, and renders my Zoloft useless. I'm always exhausted and never without some pain somewhere in my body. A recent CT scan showed a lesion on my C1 vertebre, and every thime I move my neck it sounds "crunchy".
