Hi Eldestpenguin, you can obtain Nuvigil for $5 per prescription (up to 3 a month) via a TEVA pharm industries "prescription savings card program" by asking 4 it from your sleep doctor. After paying a $40 copay, i was able to use this successfulky. brochure says to call AlphaScript Patient Info
All, So sorry all for 2nd thread on this, I hit post by accident & hadn't provided #. Per my nuvigil (TEVA) Rx savings card brochure, you can call AlphaScript (see my last post) Patient Information Hotline at 1-800-284-2966 for info @ the $5 Nuvigil rx card. brochure states to call this # for "?s about the program or your eligibility to participate." I successfully filled at CVS for $5, and the1st Rx fill is free. The pharmacy billing question line (for pharmacists to call regarding processing payments) is listed as AlphaScript Pharmacy Help Desk at 1-877-274-3244.
my sleep dr gave me this Rx card, so I am unsure if you can obtain it by calling the #. If someone determines you can obtain, please share for others. He gave me his most recent brochure, with expiration date of 12/31/2014.
Fyi, Per brochure, those NOT eligible: 1) use mail order, or who are "federal or state government employees," 2) if the pharmacy does not participate, 3) patients over 65 ("due to Medicare eligibility") or under age 17, 4) "Medicaid or other public payment programs. "
this was helpful for me bec I had originally paid $40 copay for 150mg Nuvigil, then had med change to 250 mg Nuvigil (another $40 copay, which is much cheaper than the $544 out of pocket charge for those w/out insurance). The 2 days I took the 250 mg, I developed disabling headaches from the 250 mg so my sleep dr prescribed 200 mg to titrate before starting 250mg. Since Nuvigil isn't manufactured at 200mg, dr prescribed 2 prescriptions (50 mg + 150 mg). I did pay $5 each.
