This page attempts to place all psychiatric medications together for an easy review. Approximate costs are included. In a few cases, I have been able to find much cheaper prices for other countries, but many real bargains are available in the U.S. Some older psychiatric generic medications have soared in price, often increasing over 500% almost overnight, which might make some of my prices out of date. In the last month, the Bush government has made it almost impossible to import from India where the cheapest prices were available. The drug companies often conspire with the Bush administration to jack up prices tremendously. Many very inexpensive medications for other countries can no longer be imported than to the FDA changing its rules.
For instance, the Republican administration has successfully pressured the government of India to raise their patent protection up toward U.S. levels which were themselves dramatically increased just a few years ago. The extremely corrupt Bush FDA has been very vigorous in fighting the importing of medications selling for less in other countries. The Republicans, with payoffs from drug companies and support from the leadership of AARP, just passed a sweetheart Medicare drug law preventing state governments from pressuring drug companies to negotiate lower prices although this is very common in other countries. The new law saves a little money for seniors but guarantees huge profits for drug companies and huge taxes for the American public. It also made it easier for the Bush FDA to block importation of medications. The new law will drive Medicare broke by 2018, if not sooner.
Drug companies sometimes pay generic companies to stop making cheap generics so that consumers are forced to pay 10 or 20 times more for older brand names no longer protected by patent laws. The FDA makes it very difficult for new generic manufacturers to produce medications. The FDA very frequently misrepresents the truth to the American people, claiming it is trying to protect the quality of medications when it truth it is trying to protect the quality of profits for big U.S. and multinational drug companies. It is all very corrupt with the Republican party sold out to the drug companies and the Democratic party not being much better.
Still, with some planning, it is easy for the average psychiatrist to save $250,000 to $1,000,000 a year for whomever is paying the drug bills of his or her patients. Unfortunately, very few psychiatrists or physicians of any specialty seem to care and the government definitely doesn't care. After all, physicians don't make any money by cutting costs and you get hassled by other physicians for being an oddball who uses older medications and supplements, which in fact are often just as good or better than expensive patented medications. Managed care doesn't care, so long as they get their money. Patients don't care so long as someone else is paying the bill. In fact, drug companies successfully brainwash many patients into pressuring physicians to give them the high priced, advertised medications which usually have few if any advantages over much cheaper alternatives. It's usually not my money or your money. But it is our money.
One way for patients to save money is to search the internet. Another way, which may often be cheaper, is to buy a "drug card." For $4.50 per month or $50 per year, a family can obtain a discount drug card from www.RxDrugCard.com . You can then shop at local pharmacies and enjoy discounts that are usually considerably larger than the $4.50. You can also call up pharmacies and get prices over the phone. In my experience, WalMart and Medicine Shoppes are usually the least expensive.
Prices are price for a 30-day supply at the stated "usual dosage". Prices may vary considerably by source. Its good to shop around by phone. The generic price is given where available as noted by an asterisk (*). Most prices from 2004 Darby Drug catalog for sales to physicians
