Try Goodrx, I used it for my husband's prescription for the extra Copadopa cut the price to 44$.
I was on carbodopa as a way of cutting down on nausea and getting too sleepy to drive in the middle of the day. It cost $498.a month. That was during the Medicare donut hole. After a year of paying that, decided it was not worth it and instead cut carbo / levo by a half tablet, with Dr approval, and much better. Dr tried to find cheaper source but did not find one. Hope you do better. Aloha
try Pharmacy King in Canada you will need to have your dr. send them a prescription request . i get my Azilect there and it is much cheaper
