Hey Gang-

I aven't posted in a couple of months, but I look i on you now and then. I am still on 16 mg sub a day, with no urge to relapse back to vicodin whatsoever. But I have a major problem as far as cost per day for my sub prescription.
When I went to Walgreens to get 15 of my script for 60 subs, I was shocked how much it cast. Turns out the price for the 8 mg films went from $8 back in Jan 2011 to $14 now!!! Holy cow! Has suboxone gone up this much everywhere or is it just Walgreens?

I will start calling other local pharmacies tomorrow, but I thought I woud ask what you all are paying these days.
Here's hoping you are doing well and that we all survived this long, hot summer- LenaD

Hi I just posted on the other thread, I am in AZ too. I use CVS right now and pay roughly $8 per strip. I would be interested in the name of the pharmacy. Do you know what they charge for Sub?

I use Walgreen's and I don't have insurance. I am a part of their savings club, I forget what it cost, maybe $25/year or something pretty cheap. I filled my last script on 8/4/2011 and paid $222.99 for 30 8 mg strips. That works out to 7.43/strip. I did call around before I started filling them without insurance back in April, and Walgreen's was the cheapest (compared to CVS, Costco, & Walmart).

Ask about the Walgreen's saving plan. It makes a BIG difference.
I live in SE PA, and if anyone has a cheaper place I would love to hear about it!

Hi Freedom, CVS has the same type of plan and I pay the same as you do here. From reading thru other forums I think that is a pretty average price. I continue to go to the same pharmacy because they are extremely nice. Infact they signed me up for the savings plan without me having to even ask.

you might want to check suboxone.com, I think there is a
40.00 off coupon for the strips

Like I had posted in another thread (under "Dosing")-
I just got a very small prescription filled this morning- for four 8 mg tabs and
payed $31.86 for them; I did the math on my calculator, and that roughly comes out
to about $7.97 per tablet.
If you are getting the strips, I do believe that there is a discount card that you can
print out on the Suboxone website that will let you save a considerable amount of
money off of the strips- but I think that you have to be uninsured; and I believe that
it is only good until this September.

Hope this helps.

you dont have to be uninsured to use the discount on suboxone.com, I have insurance but a 500 dollar deductable and I was able to use the cards to apply to my deductable. At first it was 75.00 discount, now its a 40.00 one

Oops! Looks like I was mistaken. Thanks, mg113 for clearing this up.

When the films first came out the card was for 75.00 off..... and it was good till march of this year, thats when I decided to jump when the 75.00 off discount was no longer valid lol but hey 45.00 is 45.00 and its all good.
