I seemed to work well with taking Vimpant, but with insurance is was $600 a month. Any idea of how to get it cheaper. I was exercising before [[treatment:Keppra:5508b44d6bcd6155dd0008e5]] and am weepy, felling sorry for my self.

My doctor was giving me “sample packs” while we checked around with insurance. It WAS $600 a month. My wife told him enuff. Try something else.

The company itself may be able to help. I got a card for money off each month for 1 year. It helped

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , You might see if your local Epilepsy Foundation could help you in any way & let them know you weren’t approved for this program. I know my local Epilepsy Foundation was willing to help when I had reached out to them but my insurance finally kicked in & so I opted to use that. If your local Epilepsy Foundation can’t make it where you can afford your medicine then talk to your doctor about it & tell them. You might always could try again applying for that UCB pharmacy patient assistance program until maybe they finally say okay. But our Epilepsy Foundations are there to help us is what I was told, so use those resources. Sending Thoughts, Hugs, Smiles & Prayers. Wishing you all the best. Your friend in Texas, Becky

Talk to your Doctor because he or she might be able to help you out. I know that their is a way that you can get it from the company that makes it through the mail.

Hi @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member . Your Dr. is right. The brand name medications are usually better. But there are certain times when the generic is the next best thing.

1. The insurance may not pay for the brand name , especially if it’s a new brand.

2. The name brand may not agree with your body chemistry, but maybe able to handle the generic.

I’ve been through all of this myself.
