I take COMTAN and it is not covered under my prescription drug plan and is VERY expensive, even in generic form (entacapone). My neurologist wants me to stay on it and I'm not poor enough to qualify for the manufacturer's needs-based discount program. So, I searched the web for alternatives and found Rx Relief, a free pharmacy discount card that claims to save you up to 75%. I'm going to show it to my pharmacist to see if it's legit. I also found several online stores that offer steep discounts via mail order. For example, while my insurance company said I'd have to pay between $300 and $350 a month for COMTAN, the following are some of the discounts I found:
1meds.com -- 100 tabs for $190
Internationaldrugmart.com -- 100 tabs for $113.62
edrugsearc.com -- 100 tabs for $88.52
This all seems too good to be true. Is it? Do you have any experience with these types of companies, good or bad?
