With the exception of Oxy (who didn't see that coming) and Namenda (why? it's the one thing Alzheimer patients have that does a little something for them), none of these seem to be very popular prescriptions.

The article says (I think) that the drugs being dropped from coverage do not apply to Medicare patients, who are likely users of Alzheimer drugs.
. The story also indicates that many of the listed drugs are available in generic form, so maybe insurance will cover the generic.
Not sure, so don't take my word for it. I don't take any drugs, so all I know about them is info that a friendly retired pharmacist neighbor sends to our area.

@novamc You and I are on the same wavelength! I just posted that is probably the case with Viagra being dropped. No one is going to pay for a more expensive brand especially for a non-maintenance med.
ETA: You are absolutely right about Medicare. They have their own formulary and I did see that Namenda ER is being dropped. Hopefully that means the other versions will be available for the early onset group.
