I am paying $200 a month for my prometrium and it is taking a toll on our finances! Is there a cheaper method? Injections? Suppositories?

Prometrium is a name brand, so it will be more expensive. I use vaginal suppositories made by a local compounding pharmacy. I don't know how much they would be without my insurance, but with insurance they're only $12, so I can't imagine they're terribly expensive.

Actually, I just called my pharmacy, and without insurance they're $75 for 28 of them (200mg 2x/day for 14 days), so they're much cheaper than $200/mo.

I use the generic brand and I pay $40 for 20. Maybe ask if generic brands are available?

Endometrim is over 200 for 21 suppositories, so I'm in the same boat.
