I ordered my Anoro-Ellipta early this morning and the price showed as $440.00 for 3 month supply. I just had an email saying there was a price change and it's now $620.00 and I had to okay the price. There is no generic for this med. But like I always say, men can get generic Viagra for cheap.

That's terrible!  Really outrageous.  So many people have this problem.

Sometimes the company has discounts or coupons.  And I know some people who use "GoodRX."  Maybe worth a try.

I hate it when there's no generic! Makes me feel like I'm being robbed.

It really stings when one needs a medication to function normally and cannot afford the cost. My RA meds are $5600 a month, we're trying to find another that works as well.

Check Mark Cuban's Cost Plus Drugs site. He doesn't have every medication, but the ones he has are at unbelievably low prices.

 

I hope everyone can get the prescriptions they need at a much more affordable price.

I am so very fortunate to have good health and prescription coverage through my employer.  When I decide to retire, that coverage is part of my retirement benefit.  However, have any of you considered having your MD write a prescription that you have filled via website from a Canadian pharmacy?   My daughter is a nurse and she said a lot of her patients do this.  It saves folks a lot of money.

@We rescue cats , OMG, how could one possibly afford that? That's jsut plain  robbery. Mine's not even close to that and it's still a rip off.

@catter70     You might ask your doctor if there's another, less expensive drug you could take

@We rescue cats , oh my gosh.  I guess I shouldn't complain that mine are about $900 a month.  That is my out of pocket.  The meds themselves are like 16k.  Absolutely ridiculous.  Unfortunately all of the meds that are under that umbrella are the same so there is no alternative and no generic.  Hopefully are you are able to find something else that will work for you.
