    Medication Too Expensive!
    Santoro986 posted:
    Hi, can anyone suggest some good/legitimate discount prescription clubs? My Adderall is beginning to get too expensive. I cannot get health insurance just yet, so I am looking for an alternative to save myself some money in the mean time. Thank you!

    I can't speak to Adderall, but I'm on the generic Ritalin (short acting) and it's $9 a month for 135 pills (10mg each) at Wal-Mart without insurance. Just a thought...

    I take adderall and I know what you mean. What about the generic? Would that be an option?

    I am currently prescribed adderall @ 20 mgs three times a day. Before taking the slip to the pharmacy, I called around to check on the price. Where I live in the USA, the prices were alot cheaper at the small "mom and pop" drug stores than they were at the larger "discount " chains. The lowest price I found was about $60.00 for 90 tablets. It was the generic brand ,of course, but it was something that I could afford. You can enroll in a prescription drug discount plan such as 'scriptsave' that offers a discount for brand name, generic and non-covered prescriptions (if you had insurance) they also offer discounts toward vision care and hearing care if you need them. The customer service number is: 1-866-268-8380.....GOOD LUCK!!

    if you are truly ADHD and under 18 and it is documented with your doctor you may qualify for ssi benefits which includes the medicaid card that will cover medications. IF you are over 18 you still may qualify, you will just have to apply and see. IF you make too much money, you may not qualify.

    Saved on my prescription Meds- I found a Free Discount card that saved me $22 on one med and $97 on another. Yay, thanks H.O.P.E!! Here is the link where I printed my card from for free and it doesnt expire and anyone can use it. I printed mine from their website and never received any kind of spam. Also heard it gives a discount on the flu shots.
    Can be used by anyone with or without insurance
    Worth a try on EVERY medication prescribed
