Injectable Medicine ???

We are getting ready to do an IUI cycle with injectables. The meds are not covered and the doctors office gave me a list of pharmacies to call and find the best price. Have you all had to do this and if so where did you find the best price?

Well, I can tell you not to use Freedom for sure. They were super expensive. You will have the best luck with the smaller pharmacies than the bigger ones. I use a small local pharmacy near my RE's office. What meds are you using? I can tell you what a decent price is...

They gave me 3 meds that I could use. I need to order 10 days of it and I am going to be taking 150 IU a night. They said I may not use all 10. This is my first time so I have not clue what to expect.

I can use Bravelle in the vial. I would need to vial's per night.

Follistim. I like the pen idea of it all.

or Gonal F pen.

I will also need the ovidrel. The price of this just went up to $65.

I use Bravelle. I pay $56 a vial and that is the cheapest I have seen it. I have also used Gonal-f but didn't use the pen - I used the vials but I am pretty sure that a 900iu pen in both Gonal-f and Follistim should both be between $700 and $800. 10 days is a standard dosage but I have had months where I used more and months were I used less so be prepared to buy more meds on a whim.

I shopped around and found that for online, Kohll's was the cheapest I found. My Follistim was $720 for a 900IU vial.

Ann, I had never heard of Kohll's before and you must know what I first thought. "Kohl's sells fertility meds??? Where? Next to Women's and Shoes?" lmaooo Anyway, I just checked their price list and they are by FAR the cheapest. Even a few dollars cheaper than the small local pharmacy I have been using.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing Chelle. Except I was thinking maybe it was an online kohls special. That would be sweet if you could use one of their gazillion mailer coupons or get an early bird special on it, LOL.
