Anyone know or found out what type of price tag this generic will have? Wonder when we will be able to get it prescribed? My doctors appointment is next week, I am definitely bringing this up because he said that the new generics was coming out soon and when they did, he would write it. Its nice that this has Naloxone in it, so they cant give me this crap bullshit line about no naloxone and people abuse it. He said that he would be honest with me and for me to be honest with him, if he dont write it then I will find another doctor end of story.
I have to save some money on the script if nothing else.

I haven't heard anything on how much it will cost and according to both companies who are making it they say they are shipping immediately so I would call around to find out.
If the doctor told you he would write for it when it was available then he probably will. It takes nothing out of his pocket to write for either prescription.
Give him a chance to come through for you.
I would be careful though when it comes to changing doctors and pharmacies. I don't want to make you angry but at the same time I don't want you to be accused of doctor shopping or anything else like it.

Oh no hun, I know what you mean. I just get a little wound up at times LOL. I will be so happy to find out the price of it, I seen somewhere that Amneal's product will be available early March. Im having a hard time typing. my pinky finger on my left hand is numb completely. Not sure if its a pinched nerve or if its my carpel tunnel syndrome acting up. its annoying thats for sure. so i figured out that my pinky finger is the shift key, so my sentences might not be capitalized like they are supposed to i apologize.

sorry to hear about your finger. It does sound something like carpal tunnel, take care. Once you find out the cost in your area please do post it I'd like to compare it to others.
Hope you feel better.

It finally got the feeling back in it yesterday evening. There is a little numb spot in the pad of it but its small and atleast I can type with it now. Its my shift key holder and I play MMO games so I use that button ALOT. I need to add a new picture to my avatar, I got my hair done the other day. My husband and I did it, its half purple and half pink. Yes, Im nutty that way LOL. It looks so good, the colors really compliment each other well.
Anyways, I have been calling pharmacies pretty much everyday and no words yet. The day that I find out prices, I will post them here. Im not sure if the prices will be global, or if it will differ from state to state. I will do as much as I can to find out though. Yall are awesome, I love coming here and reading people's stories and experiences.
