Latuda Savings Guide

Latuda (lurasidone) is an antipsychotic prescribed to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are both complex mental illnesses, probably related to the amount of neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerves to communicate) present in the brain. Latuda works by changing the levels of these neurotransmitters.

There is no generic equivalent for Latuda currently on the market. Latuda can cost uninsured patients as much as $1000 for a 30-day supply. Even with insurance, co-pays for Latuda add up as this medication is generally prescribed over a long period of time.

Patients can start seeing savings on their prescriptions by printing out a free Latuda coupon to use at the pharmacy. While online, patients are urged to use the convenient comparison shopping tools available. Simply enter your zip code to see an instant list of the Latuda prices in your area.

  1. I AM A SINGLE MOTHER WITH TWO CHILDREN. I HAVE BEEN GIVEN SAMPLES OF LATUDA FOR OVER 3 YEARS BY MY PSYCHIATRIST. THERE ARE NO SAMPLES LEFT OR HE ISN’T OFFERING THEM. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD GREAT INSURANCE BUT IN 2018 MY INSURANCE COMPANY OPTED OUT LEAVING ME WITH
    NO OPTION BUT ACA FROM THE GOVERNMENT WHICH COVERS VERY LITTLE OF ANYTHING. I GOT ON
    UNITED HEALTHCARE BUT THEY WILL NOT PAY A PENNY FOR ANY MEDICATION USED FOR PRE-
    EXISTING CONDITIONS. MY LATUDA IS USED FOR BI-POLAR AND IT WORKS. I’VE BEEN OFF OF IT FOR
    A MONTH (80 MG TWICE A DAY) AND I’M SICK. WALGREENS WANTS $3,000 A MONTH FOR THIS MEDICATION. IF THERE IS ANY HELP WITH LOWERING THE COST I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW. THE COPAY
    COUPON OF $125 OFF THE PRICE DOES LITTLE AND I’VE BEEN TOLD THERE IS NO GENERIC ON THE WAY
    FOR A LONG TIME SO I REMAIN “STUCK” IN HOUSTON, TX
    THANK YOU FOR ANY SUGGESTIONS,
    JENNIFER

    1. If you have a plan purchased ater 2010 it is my understanding that they need to cover pre-existing conditions. If your plan refuses then my suggestion would be to look for an alternative to Latuda such as Lithium or Seroquel, or try to find a plan that will cover your medication. As a last resort you can also speak to a Healthcare attornery to see if what your current insurance is doing is legal.
