Pristiq Coupons and Savings Guide
Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) is an antidepressant prescribed to treat major depression. Depression and similar disorders are thought to be related to the fluctuating amount of neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerves to communicate) in the brain. Pristiq works by regulating the amount of neurotransmitters present.
The FDA has recently announced the approval of a generic version of Pristiq. Patients should ask their doctor if this generic is right for their condition. For uninsured patients who must or who prefer to take name-brand Pristiq, a 30-day supply usually costs well over $200. Antidepressants are usually taken over a long period of time, so even insured patients can expect the mounting costs of co-pays.
Not all pharmacies charge the same price for the same medication. Consumers can comparison shop their local pharmacies, using these convenient online tools. After finding an agreeable price, just print the Pristiq discount card and take it to a local pharmacy.
