Helping Americans Get The Truth About Prescription Drug Savings
Published by:

Abilify is a top selling brand name medication used to treat a variety of conditions for various age groups, including schizophrenia for ages 13 and older, bipolar I disorder for ages 10 and over, and major depressive disorder in adults. Unfortunately, it’s a very expensive drug, but luckily there are ways to save thousands of dollars a year.

In 2011, Americans spent over 5.2 billion dollars on Abilify. Its cash price at a local pharmacy for a three-month’s supply of 10 milligram tablets is just over $2,200. Luckily, if you’re looking for Abilify and don’t have insurance (or if your insurance doesn’t cover it) you don’t have to pay this high price! The savings are by far greatest online, but if you need your medicine immediately and can’t wait 2-3 weeks for shipping, you can use a coupon or discount card at your local pharmacy.

By using a coupon at your local pharmacy, you can save about 16%, bringing the 90 day cost down to $1,858. Using a discount card brings slightly better savings at 22% and a 90 day cost of $1,737.

That’s still a lot of money to spend per year on medication. By ordering through an international online pharmacy, you can save 85%, and spend only $330 over 90 days. The annualized potential savings are $7,535! Here’s a handy chart that shows the savings:
