At almost $155 a pop, it’s probably no surprise that we get lots of questions about trying to find cheaper, more affordable sources for Cymbalta. If you or a loved one suffers from depression, Cymbalta is one of the most commonly-prescribed prescription treatments, but unfortunately, it’s also one of the most pricey.
The good news is that the patent on Cymbalta will finally expire in 2013. The bad news is that it’s still a long way until 2013, and it will probably still take a few months after that for Cymbalta prices to come down.
Crummy! And I Still Can’t Afford $155 a Month for Cymbalta!
Okay, the situation is not great (to say the least!), but we still have some options for cheaper, more affordable Cymbalta:
Cymbalta Coupons. From time to time, Eli Lilly has offered patients coupons to help them buy Cymbalta. We can’t find any Cymbalta coupons available right now, but as soon as we hear of any, we’ll be posting the news.
The Eli Lilly Patient Assistance Programs. Eli Lilly offers assistance to patients with a financial hardship who meet eligibility requirements. Eli Lilly offers a range of programs for patients who may be uninsured, underinsured, unemployed, or facing other financial difficulties. Patients who meet a program’s eligibility criteria are provided with Eli Lilly products like Cymbalta for free, at a savings, or with reimbursement support services.
Cymbalta Free Samples. If you and your doctor know you need to take Cymbalta for a short-period of time or and the Cymbalta sample is going to help patch you over a tough month or two, by all means… take the Cymbalta samples, but keep in mind, prescription drug samples are not a long-term answer if you still have difficulty paying for your Cymbalta. If you can’t afford your Cymbalta after the samples run out, it’s time to talk to your doctor about a longer-term solution.
