Vimpat Savings Guide
Vimpat (lacosamide) is an anti-epileptic prescribed to treat epilepsy in people at least 17 years of age. Epilepsy is a complex brain condition that can lead to painful and damaging seizures. Vimpat works by helping to regulating certain neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerves to communicate) in the brain.
There is a generic equivalent for Vimpat; ask your doctor about availability and if this equivalent is right for your condition. For uninsured patients who must take the brand name, a 30-day supply of Vimpat can cost as much as $100. Even insured patients have co-pays, and since there is no cure for epilepsy, patients can expect to be prescribed anti-epileptics over a long period of time.
