How Can I Get My Rytary Carbidopa And Levodopa Medicine Without Paying A Fortune?

How Can I Get My Rytary Carbidopa And Levodopa Medicine Without Paying A Fortune?

My medicare and AARP supplemental insurance will not cover my medicine cost. Does any one know how I can get my medicine at a reasonable price? I take my medicine 3 times per day. The generic medicine makes me sick (nausea) and I can not take it. I like Rytary, but I can't afford it. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thank you.

Thank you my friend Thor. The carbadopa levadopa medicine that I am taking is produced by a company called Rytary, which mixes the formula different than the regular generic one. The formula is much better for me because I don't have any side-effects like nausea. Therefore I find myself needing the Rytary brand, unfortunately. The good news is that I have found a philanthropic organization to help me with the cost of the medicine.
I appreciate your efforts to help my. Thank you very much. Hope you are having a great day. Blessings.

There are foundations that can help pay the cost of the rytary. You should talk to your doctors.

Ive been on it for al most a year but recently turned65and now Medcare is balking at the $1088.00 per monthly charge. I take 9tabs a day. I'tv had PD for over 22 years so im on the max. I had Alaska employees insurance and they paved it all!! Lucky me!
