Pristiq Vs Effexor
Posted 17 April 2011 - 04:42 PM
Okay so tomorrow I've got an appointment with my nurse practitioner to get a 90 day prescription for my Pristiq. I switched to Pristiq when I ran out of Effexor, and since I didn't have health insurance at the time, my NP switched me to Pristiq because it was pretty much the same, and was cheaper. I remember getting a prescription for 120 pills of Effexor, and without insurance would have cost me $700.
I know that Effexor is available as a generic, but I do not know the cost. Is it less expensive than Pristiq now? If so, I'm going to ask to be switched back to negate the costs.
Any input would be appreciated.

You didn't hear it from me, but if your doctor is willing to confirm it with the pharmacy company, you can get it cheaper ordering from an online Canadian pharmacy. (Assuming you're in the U.S. like me.) My pdoc says this is relatively safe, but it's still illegal.
