    Goingforthin, So the other day I went to my Costco and had my R X filled. It costed me 42 dollars for 30 day supply of 30mg phen. They told me that the Free R X drug card did not cover phen. I left and didnt want to cause a hassle. When I got home I called them and told them that they did cover phen and therefore they overcharged me. The ** came to 18$ with the discount. I would print out that card and use it there.

    BTW I checked out the site http://www.freedrugcard.us/ and they offer the phen at walgreens/cvs/riteaid for 18$ 30 day supply. If you have one of those in your area you may want to check it out. Otherwise the free ** card site from above does work at costco. Take care!!

    My next appt. is on Thursday, and I am going to get the generic phentermine dispensed in the office instead of getting Adipex, at Walgreens. If the office charges much more the typical $30.00, I am going to start the process of weaning myself from phen this month.

    Well, I get mine from a clinic here, and it's always $60.00, so I'm wondering if I should just move to look good. lol. However, I think it's like $25 for the actual pills and $35 for the visit to the clinic. I take the 37.5 and get a 30 day supply.

    Today I went to Krogers Pharmacy to pick up my prescription and it doubled, like 56.00 for 30 day supply of the generic! The pharmacist told me they had to switch manufacturers, so I told him keep those pills and I will transfer the prescription to Walgreens tomorrow and try the drug discount card.

    Thanks ladies for the information for the discount card. Hope it still works since the prices have seem to increase.

    If you go to www.freedrugcard.us you can get a discount card. If your insurance doesn't cover Phen (which most likely it doesn't), you can use this card. All you do is type in your name and email address then click submit. Then a card pops up and you just print it out. When you go to the pharmacy you show them the card and they punch it in the computer and you get a major discount. It seriously gets knocked down to lower than $20. The site said it will go down to about $13. I have not used this card YET. But this card is legit because is is a US website. US websites are ALWAYS legit.
    I have used another discount card from yourR X card.com (don't put a space between R and X). You do the same thing with this card. You type in your name and email then you print out the card. I did this 2 weeks ago and $11 knocked off the total. I was really excited.
    The first card a I gave you gives a WAY better discount though. Hope this helps...well it definitely will if you do it lol. Good luck!

    I just filled mine at Walmart. I take 30mg Phentermine. It cost $28 and change for 30 days. That is what it cost me last time. My insurance doesn't cover it.
    Keep on Keepin' on!

    My Dr. fills mine in his office for $20.00 so that I dont have to stop on my way home. So much easier for me. I take 37.5. And, the follow appointments every month are $50.00. , I dont use insurance for this.

    So, it's confirmed. Well I guess no more brand name for me. I am going back to phentermine. Maybe I will save my last Adipex as a momento.

    Cool HUGE PRICE INCREASE ON PHEN????

    Hi All,

    I just returned from my weekly trip to Costco and to have my Phen script filled. Doc gave me a 60 day supply of 15mg, so I was psyched. ( Normally, I always get a 30 day supply and have to get another one after a doc visit) Anyway, I went to the pharmacy and when they went to ring up my script, he said ok, one of your scripts is inexpensive and one is very expensive. So I asked, is the water pill expensive, he says no, $6 for 30 pills. I said so the phentermine is? He says yup, $96 for the 60 day supply. I said, no you must be mistaken. I was just here last month and had a 30 day supply of 30 mg filled for $17. How could a 60 day supply of 15mg be more expensive. Now I realize that I was getting double the amount of pills, so therefore the total should be $34-36 for a 60 day supply...right? He says, let me check, hang on. I said well wait, if this is going to be $96 for 60, just fill 10 days for me and I will go to Target and get the rest filled. They can transfer the script to them for me. He says, let me check on this. Comes back and says, Costco received a letter that Phenterimine has had a huge price increase. I can show you the letter in the computer here if you like. I said, No, please just fill 10 days worth, I will get the rest filled elsewhere. Well, a 2nd pharmacist who was returning from lunch, now walks in. So, off the guy I was dealing with goes to fill the 10 days. Two minutes later, he comes back and says, ok, when the other pharmacist returned, he said, just fill this 60 day supply at the old price. We (Costco)bought it at the old price, so just give it to her at the old price, but any new scripts, will be at the higher price. So, I did get my 60 day supply of 15mg for $36. Amazing, huh

    So, here are my questions:
    1) Have any of you been told about a significant price increase on Phen?
    2) If so, where?
    3) If not, where do you get your scripst filled?
    4) Don't you think it is kind of strange that once I was taking my business elsewhere, the price changed??
    5) So, now even Costco is scamming people? In this economy???
    Things that make you go hmmmmmmm! The price of wanting to be thinner!
