Provigil generic price

Common Questions and Answers about Provigil generic price


Avatar f tn com I have heard a lot of really good things about Provigil, although I've never used it. It was recommended to me many times though. Just some food for thought. Seems EVERYTHING comes with its own set of dangers attached. Much love MH, RB (Christina) Popular 'Smart Drug' Prescription May Carry Addiction Risk Wednesday, March 18, 2009 A so-called "smart drug" popular with young people may carry more of an addiction risk than thought, a small government study suggests.
Avatar f tn 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!
1059772 tn?1286658790 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.
Avatar f tn Not surprised, though. My pharmacy told me their retail price for a month of Provigil is well over $300, and I know others here have had the same problem. Luckily my neuro's office is cooperating with all this rigmarole, so I hope it's straightened out soon. End of rant.
Avatar n tn Hey I have MS and I have switched back forth from phentermine to provigil. Provigil is so much more on costs. You can buy medicine from elsewhere with your prescription and save money.
572651 tn?1333939396 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.
1142551 tn?1264740530 Ask for a prescription for Nuvigil instead. Provigil is more expensive and I actually had more side effects with Provigil. Nuvigil is the 2nd generation of Provigil and the manufacturer has lowered the price to get everyone "switched" before the patent on Provigil expires in 2011. For me, the difference between Nuvigil and Provigil was amazing. Nuvigil gave me back my life. Provigil let me leave the house but I had trouble functioning.
405614 tn?1329147714 Wow! I took my first 100 mg. of Provigil yesterday. I had to get up really early to make it in to a 8:20 appt. with my PCP, and took my Provigil at 6 am. After my shower, I was feeling pretty good, still dizzy and shaky, but moving fast, ready to go in plenty of time, and took everything I needed to have with me. I got into town in time to go to my apartment, pick up some items I wanted, check in with the forum, and go to my appt. after chatting briefly with a neighbor.
2112931 tn?1335102002 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.
333672 tn?1273796389 com/article/SB122696875770635577.html?mod=googlenews_wsj that talks about this using Provigil as an example. Apparently, the drug company 1. Came up with a new, improved version that lasts longer 2. Raised the price on the current version 3. Is planning to release the new version at a much lower price thus 4. Forcing most people to switch to the new version in the couple years before the generic comes out 5.
Avatar f tn 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.
382218 tn?1341185087 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.
572651 tn?1333939396 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.
968560 tn?1307455098 I checked with the provigil,my insurance wont cover it and even that they have a generic available for provigil (modafil) the price for the generic without insurance is $167 a month 200mg a day.My hepa said all stimulants have the potential for abuse Didrex is a class III schedule and is less addictive than the addrerall or the ritilan(which he cant write for anyway. Didrex was approved by the FDA in 1960 as a Central Nerve stimulant. The normal dosage is 2-50mg tabs daily and costs $22.
1396846 tn?1332463110 Well they got the insurance to approve the provigil. Whoo hoo!!! It would have cost $864 but I only paid $3. What a relief. I would never have paid that much money out of pocket for the medicine. I will pay out of pocket for some but that is ridiculous. Anyway just glad they approved it so now maybe I can get some relief from this fatigue.
405614 tn?1329147714 I could get them if I wanted. But provigil is so worth the price I pay. I give up shopping and work 2 days a week to pay for it right niw. MY insurance pays 50% of it, still expensive but much better than $500.00. Its gone up too since last year. I dont understand why you cannot get helps make you more alert also, unlike the others.
148588 tn?1465782409 "While sharp overnight increases in the cost of prescription drugs have recently dominated headlines, critics say another pharmaceutical industry practice that has added billions of dollars to the price that consumers pay for their medicines continues unabated.
Avatar m tn 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 .
212705 tn?1221624250 So you might want to double check the warnings/precautions should you try provigil. My dose was 200 mg and I checked on my bottle and no generic name was there. Again, I would check that, to be sure: The best natural energy booster is illegal. Going down the list to the legal stimulants you have coffee, guarana, and tea leading the way among commercially available stimulants. Others can add to that list I'm sure.
Avatar f tn They will sell me the empty capsules but realized I can get them from my veterinary supply house! same price. Then you have to be careful as the 3r capsule doesn't totally fill and I divide out my doses for the day in a small packet I carry in my pocket. @Sandy...yeah, I can, but they stick in my throat AND still have to dissolve and meanwhile sitting on my tummy. So will find out in May, if Medicare will fill it...........maybe should call my idiot drug co......
Avatar f tn My fatigue has been severe for a long time and does not improve, i also take provigil. It is very expensive and there is no break in price anywhere, i have checked everywhere. My insurance will cover it in January, my pharmacy insurance ran out in May or June this year. I am paying for it by not buying anything else for myself. Its worth it because if i didnt have it i would not be out of bed. I also work two days a week and use that to pay for it.
Avatar f tn Mine stared quite awhile back until it got to the point you speak of, before my diagnosis. I have been on Provigil a long time now and it works well for me. It was great when i first started it...its expensive, i even paid full price for it once. Otherwise, i would not get up off the sofa. You might check into it and there will be a generic out soon, just not sure when. Good luck ...
Avatar m tn I was finally referred to a top research university to consult with a doctor who specializes in treatment resistant depression (TRD - an appropriate acronym if ever there was one). He has done many clinical studies treating TRD with Provigil (as have other research hospitals) and it is one of the few medications (well, the only, actually) that has helped me. The problem is that my insurance company refuses to cover the medication, which is $2400 out of pocket for the generic form.
315996 tn?1429057829 I was very much looking forward to the patent expiration which happened quite recently, but there seems to be some serious price fixing going on because now a generic prescription cost too much to fill ($890 for a 90-day supply). We really need to do something about the power held by drug companies!
Avatar f tn On another note, when I wasn't sleeping well at all, it was so much worse. My Neuro prescribed temazapam (generic for Restoril). It was truly a MIRACLE!!!!! I'm telling you this because I would wake up the next morning and feel so awesome. Refreshed, etc. My 1st though was "HOLY Cr ap!!! Is this what you are actually suppose to feel like in the a.m.? I had not clue as it had been so durn long - like years! And also, I never woke up once during the night - it's a wonderful feeling.
Avatar n tn My out-of-pocket cost for my Avonex is about $4500 a year. But on top of that I have the Provigil and the Clonazapam which adds another $500 a year.
Avatar n tn 05 - 25 patches per month and also 2 x hydrocodone /apap10 mg/325mg per day as needed - $189.50 , Provigil (Great Stuff For modivation)$ 768.92 for 90 -100 mg pills per month x 3, and Lexapro X1 @ 365.00 every morning for depresion from the hydrocodone and loosing my business. I took more drugs than the averge person could handle.
Avatar n tn Also, to offset the feelings of lethargy from Zoloft my GP and I started a trial course of Provigil [modafinil], 200 mg daily in the morning.
Avatar n tn However it does not matter what I eat or how much I cannot gain. Ohh well it is the price I am willing to pay to be migriane free, and live again!!! The best thing to do with Topamax is fight through the first 5 to 6 weeks of side effects your body will leval and you will be pleased with the end results. I almost gave up on Topamax and I am so glad that I did not!
