Where Do You Get Your Cymbalta

Anyhow, would you qualify for something like the programs that are given by the drug companies? I'm sure they go on how much you make. Just because we have insurance doesn't mean it's not a hardship. I know one of my docs gave me Cymbalta for almost 2 years for free. I guess she was aware of how expensive this med was and how it factored into my budget.
I'd look into some kind of assistance. It's out there, but you need to look for it. If I can find the info, I'll pm it to you. Even a rebate would help you. It's expensive to treat depression, for sure.
I have GAD. I worry about everything, lol!

By the way.....depression runs in my family but I had a lapse from when I was working two jobs, going to school, and trying to do everything at home. One of my jobs had me going home at night and crying in the shower. I hated that job so much, it has been over a year now since I quit that job and I am so grateful for that.

1.) Samples, ask your Dr. if you could pick up a month's supply of samples from him/her. That is what I am doing at this moment. No cost. He charges me full price for the visit, but there is no charge for the meds. (no insurance).
2.) Ask your doctor about, or look it up online yourself, the Prescription Assistance Plan. Are you in the US? I'm not sure if it is available outside of the US, but I have used this before. Lilly will send you I think 3-4 months (at a time, you just need to renew your application yearly i think) worth of whatever dosage you are taking for no cost. They ship it to your Dr and you pick it up there. You need proof of income to get this, which is just a paystub basically, or anything else. I'm not sure what to do if you are unemployed, but your Dr or the website should be able to tell you.
3.) Also, if you can't do either of the above, there are discount cards that you can get that will at least help a little bit. Unfortunately, Cymbalta is an expensive drug. Even with insurance it can still be pricey... I will have insurance next month, but since there's no generic and its non-preferred, I will still have to pay around $50 for it... which may not be a lot for some people, but for me it certainly is =(
Hope that helped a little bit... I know paying for this stuff can be such a pain. Please try for the samples or the assistance program (I know there is a website for that, I just don't remember it and don't think I can post it anyways.)

On the other hand, fill out the form for PPA and see what they will do to help. If you can at least get a reduction, that will help. Maybe asking your doc to give you 30mg., twice a day would help, too. Docs have done this for me in the past, with pills that you break in half. Docs know that we have a difficult time paying for some of these meds when we don't have insurance. They help when they can. If your community has some kind of social service agency, they might help out, too.

Oh boy! The cost of health care is rising. I've got an outrageous deductible to meet. I handed over $98 for 30 30mg cymbalta pills. I tried to do without but withdrawal was way too bad for me. Does anyone know of a health care plan or an online pharmacy that does better than $3+ per pill. Or what I have to say to my doctor to get him to prescribe me the 60mg without being too obvious? I mean you get all these spam adds for cheep viagra and penis enlargement pills surely somewhere out there there is something useful. Help!
There is generic cymbalta sold in Canada which makes the drug companies cough up a generic. The prices range from
$.093 to $3 per pill. I don't know why this seems to be a big mystery but these drugs have been available for years. Today the problem is the drug souce. You have no idea where the drug comes from-China, Turkey etc. God only knows what the pills contain. Be very careful!
