According to PSCard.com (a free prescription discount program available to anyone), 30 pills of Provigil 200mg would be about $440 and 30 pills of Nuvigil 250mg would be about $300. Neither are really anything you want to pay retail for. I hate how some meds can be obscenely expensive at retail cost, but with insurance, they cost like, $20/month. I have a COBRA policy with BCBS of Alabama that costs $500/month (and is set to run out in January), but even at $500/month, the prescription coverage is practically nonexistent. At the pharmacy counter, I have to pay near retail for everything, then I have to worry about filing claims online so they'll reimburse us for most of the cost whenever they feel like it. I'd rather pay $20 per prescription each month and not get that money back than have to worry about filing claims and all that crap.

If the OP would use a one of the various free prescription discount cards/services available (or even a free prescription program like the one available through Xubex, however it only covers Nuvigil once a day for 30 days at a time), the prices will be easier to research and compare. Like with the PSCard.com thing I mentioned - you can search and compare the prices using your zip code, and it'll list the local pharmacies that offer it for the cheapest first.

I went Friday and they wanted $600 for one month prescription if Insurance would cover it....they wouldn't...so Doc switched me to Adderall. $48.00 for 60 tabs.She did have weeks worth of samples of Provigil, which made me feel like new, so i may just bite the bullet and pay cash.Adderall puts me right to sleep. If you think this stuff is expensive now....wait til it's free :-0

Just saw this and I had to comment. This is an obscenely expensive retail price, I can't believe it's so expensive. That's insane. I mean compare it to the brand name Zyprexa Zydis, seriously though that price tag for a stimulant, what are they thinking? How expensive is the generic version?

 

In my country the retail price is $230 for the generic, no brand name Modafinil is available. College kids I've been talking to pay $150-200 (street price) for the generic version.

This is not based on personal knowledge, but I have heard that Costco and Sam's Club have the lowest prices on Rx drugs and that you can visit their pharmacies without being a member. If you are near either of these, you might want to check it out.

Prunella,

 

If you are near either of these, you might want to check it out.

 

That is correct but for the sake of anyone out there who might be reading this and is uninsured, if you join Costco (know nothing about Sam's club), then you can sign up for their uninsured discount. For me, saving a few bucks on up to ten generic meds a month, is well worth the price of membership. The amount saved varies but it's always been at least two bucks and the most I save is close to $5.00 on one prescription. Well, there was one time I needed to pay retail for 10 5mg of Saphris and I saved $25.00 with the discount.

 

I read an article about the variation of prices by pharmaices and Costco was the lowest and CVS the highest. I don't know if I told the story here or elswhere but I pay $12.05 at Costco for 120 10mg/325 Norco (without costco discount $15.00+. I had need of using CVS because they were open hours that I needed in order to pick it up on the weekend so I had my pain management doctor call it in and it was either $93.00 or 98.00 at CVS. The guy on the phone kept emphasizing that it was for 120 pills as though I were too stupid to know what my regular script from Costco was. I expected it to be expensive but thought that twice as expensive would still make paying the extra money worth it but I never expected it to be so high.
