Introducing Generic Suboxone.
If you want to save money on any prescription, you can always ask for generic. When it comes to Suboxone, for many years there was no generic available. Fortunately, you now have this cost saving option.
Films vs Tablets.
While the Suboxone brand comes in the form of rectangular films, the generic version is a tablet. So, does the tablet work as well as the film? In fact, it does work the same. The only issue may be that generic Suboxone tablets can take longer to dissolve under your tongue.
How cheap is cheap?
While the generic form of Suboxone is cheaper than the brand, is it cheap enough? That is a good question. When you ask the pharmacist to check the generic price, you may be surprised to find that it still can cost hundreds of dollars for a month’s prescription. Is there any way to get this cost down further?
Introducing discount cards.
When it comes to generic medications, you must arm yourself with a discount card to get the best savings. For example, the Good Rx card can bring down the cost of Suboxone dramatically. In fact, it can bring down the cost per tablet to around $2. This is 80% less than the brand cost.
Can generic Suboxone be made cheaper?
While savings are pretty good now, I believe that they can be better. Generic medications are very inexpensive to make. It has been said that generic Suboxone is cheaper than water before the pharmacies mark up the price. Large pharmacies have brought down prices of many generics to under $5 for an entire month’s supply. In light of the current opioid epidemic, it is time for pharmacies and government to work together and find a way to bring down the cost of this critical medication. Successfully treating more people will help to save many more lives. Affordable medication will help those who struggle with addiction to find freedom and happiness.
