Default Generic for Neudexta?

Three months ago I began taking Neudexta to stop crying at the drop of a hat. At that time, my copay was $120 for a 90 day supply. I tried to refill it today. The copay has increased to more than $1000! With all the other drugs I need to take, I canít afford to pay that amount for one pill. Is there a generic version? Or maybe another drug that would help this issue? Iím just blown away by the increase. Thatís 10X increase....

Default Re: Generic for Neudexta?

Are you in the medicare donut hole maybe? Not that that helps with the issue but if you are it will affect your other meds

There is no generic but I have heard of people using a compounding pharmacy and it was cheaper.

My sister got some relief from dextromethorphan alone

mine comes from compounding pharmacy. Hospice does it that way to save money here. I guess Medicare doesn't care as much about keeping costs down, or something!?
