Angry and not fair!

Nov 16, 2014 3:37 PM

So I went to my doctor and she wants to try me on Cymbalta instead of Lexapro (both generic) to see if will give me more relief. I go to pick it up at the pharmacy and it is $120.00 for a one months supply. my insurance stinks... it's all basically out of pocket due to my $6K deductible. Imthought maybe Immight have to pay $50 but $120? I guess this means Imgive of acupuncture for the med? I don't know...
Does anyone find that Cymbalta is really helpful? I am really angry right now. I wish you could get better healthcare/insurance if you need it.

Our whole health care system is a joke. I am sorry you have to suffer due to it. Do they not make a generic cymbalta? My Dr gave a prescription for it but after looking at some of the side effects I declined. He did mention that it had just gone generic though.

Agreed with Blessed. It's horrible how our system functions currently.

Cymbalta is more for depression then pain it is very mild. Not worth you paying that kind of money.
