Hi there, this is Kitt. I do not know a lot about PRISTIQ other then Weyth is marketing it for 20% less then the cost of Effexor. The cost of PRISTIQ will be $3.41 per tablet. It is another SNRI but it is brand new so I don't know any pros or cons about this med.
I feel by discussing the med with your Doctor you are being your own best advocate and perhaps someone here has more info for you. It really just hit the market.
I wish you good luck if you do switch to it as sweating is not fun.
Please keep posting.Kitt
Hey there, I have been calling around to the differnt pharmacies in our area and I have been shocked by the cost...............
Cub Pharmacy Pristiq 50 mg tab $9.69/per tab
Walmart: $7.78/per tab
Walgren's Pharmacy : $11.99/per tab.
I think you have found the best price. When I went online I must have hit one of those not so safe sites.
I have topay for my Cymbalta and it is very high price too but not in this price range.
I believe this is a sample of customer gouging. At $11.99 per tab, 30 tabs would run $359.00.
I would be intersted in which pharmacy you use if you care to post it on the public forum.

Over 200 pharmaceutical companies have developed Patient Assistance Programs to assist the uninsured who cannot afford their medicine.
I know your physicians need to write a letter to the pharmaceutical company for the Assisstant program and the med is mailed to your physician.
It may take a lot of paper work but sometimes the benefit is greater in the end.
That is a huge price difference from MN to Florida in cost. I checked the price of the medication if you had to pay the whole bill yourself. This would be the uninsured or Insurance companies that do not cover this drug in their formulary.
Have a wonderful day and may God send you his Grace and Peace Donna62
