Discount Meds?
Thu, 08-21-2003 - 4:25pm
DH & I are beginning an IVF cycle in a few weeks and my RE is prescribing a protocol that requires Follistim and Repronex. Any tips on where to find discount meds? Online ordering?

We did an IVF cycle four years ago and I ordered through an online pharmacy (PharmaMed, I think), but I cannot seem to locate it again and am wondering if it went out of business...

Any tips that you ladies have would be most appreciated because my insurance covers zero of the costs of IVF & related meds.

Hello Kimber-

I have no idea about getting discount meds in general..... I am taking gonal-f as part of my protocol and my nurse said that they are running a discount right now---buy two vials and get the third free.

The discount runs until the end of Sept. I believe. Maybe you can talk to RE and see if this medicine could work for you and perhaps save you money.

Good luck and I hope you can find some savings.....

baby dust,

Hi Kimber

The nurse in my RE's office recommended

Not sure how they rate as far as pricing goes but I do know that the 2 meds you mentioned was part of my prescription list and although my ins covers my meds (thank God) i was having trouble getting these two filled becasue of Qty amounts. They told me if my ins doesn't cover it I would have to pay 1600.00 for 11 vials of 1 & 22 vials of the other.
