Well my co-pay is higher for the Brand Name, but I have not had the Generic brand for quite a long time now! Usually for the Generic or regular ones, my co-pay is three dollars but for ones not in the insurance formulary I pay the higher nine dollar co-pay. I take a 40mg tablet every eight hours. Oxycontin is not one of the cheaper mediactions though!
Mzmarty is there any other medication that your Pain doctor could put you on that would work for you? I know that for allot of people that can be difficult, but have you discussed it with your Pain Management Doctor? I do hope you can find a workable solution!
Good Luck to You
