rhat is crazy. i use lidocaine patches and they are helpful in my case. But they are by no means $100.00 per patch. That is nuts. It is more like $4.00 if you use a good store. Here is how you do it. If you have a rite aid around you. You download the goodrx app. It will charge you like $114.00 for a box of 30 of the generic ones. That is what I use and they are just as good as lidoderm patches. I realize this is still expensive. But it is far from what he is saying. If it is something you desperately need and you income is lower, check out patient assistance program for lidoderm patches because gererics usuallly do not have assistance programs.
I have used the GoodRX app as well and it has paid off for sure. My pain doc isn't covered under my insurance anymore and they changed the rules or something so now they only cover prescriptions written by docs who take the insurance so his prescriptions are no longer covered for me. Anyway the only way I have been able to afford my pain meds is with this app. Still not cheap but at least 50% discount. Also you might call around to see what the cash price is at various pharm it can vary greatly.
That is insane, I got mine for really cheap. I'm so sorry you're in pain. But the lidocaine patches help a lot. At least they do for me when it's completely unbearable and the hydrocodone isn't working
Same thing... my insurance said I can get a months supply ( up to 90) for 100$ . 100$ a month plus my other prescriptions as well as my husbands and our Medicare is too expensive. They do help me a lot It cuts down on the amount of Percocet that I take. So unfair! You want to cut down on the narcs and they make it so you can't! Do they really want you dependent on their drugs or what?
