Saphris Savings Guide
Saphris (asenapine) is prescribed as an antipsychotic medication. It is often given to treat Bipolar I Disorder in adults and children over 10, as well as schizophrenia in adults. Bipolarity and schizophrenia are complex mental disorders related to the amount of neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerves to communicate) in the brain. Saphris works by regulating these neurotransmitters.
There is a generic available for Saphris, but the medication is still rather costly. A 30-day supply can cost as much as $200 for uninsured patients, who can expect to be prescribed the medication over a long period of time; there is no cure for bipolarity or schizophrenia. Even insured patients must contend with co-pays that begin to add up over time.
