Right now,I am not on AS many meds then I have been in the past. But still I take 4 regular meds a day,plus my Copaxone injections. I am currently getting samples on two drugs from my Dr office and I receive assistance for my Copaxone. I just hate how much meds are. If it werent for assitance with my Copaxone,I wouldnt be able to afford it. The co-payment every month is like a car payment and we just dont have that kind of money. Anyone else going crazy over the cost of this stuff?

We have decent insurance and even with our copay the medicine for David and I is over $300 a month. He takes 8 different pills and I take four different pills.

I'm fortunate. I only take 2 prescriptions that cost $28 a month. I really do appreciate my health insurance.

I keep thinking if we didn't have insurance what we would do. It would be a nightmare.

My prescription insurance requires me to use mail order, and I have to get a 3 month supply at a time (unless it is something like an antibiotic that I'm only taking for a short time). It costs more up front, but in the long run is cheaper. For example, my Topamax is $150 for a 3 month supply, but a 1 month supply at the pharmacy is $72. Celebrex is similar. $112 for a 3 month supply or $56 for a 1 month supply. The Enrbel I only get a month at a time, but if I were to get it through the pharmacy it would be $1500!!!!!! Through the mail order it is $50. (They don't cover it through the pharmacy for some reason.) So I pay a lot for meds upfront, but I get a 3 month supply of them at a cheaper rate in the long run than paying for a month at a time. It's just a lot of moeny upfront when I am taking 10 prescriptions.
