I have found out that my insurance wouldnt cover januvia, so I had to get off of it. I found out and you would have to ask the office nurse about this, that if your doctor should call the insurance co. and explain that you need the med., it might be accessable to you for around $50 a month.

If you contact astra-zeneca the manufacturer of Januvia, they have an assistance program of their own that will help you. My dr. put me on Januvia and my deductible was so high that my co-pay was 180 dollars a month which I could not afford on my minimum wage pay. I contacted the company and they sent me 90-day scripts free of charge until I no longer needed the assistance. This company is super in my eyes!

Most of the drug companies can be contacted on the web page look for the patient assistance program and fill out the information follow all the directions carefully and send back with the drs sighnature and prescription. if you qualify (such as income or a hardship case ) t5he drug companies will mail most prescriptions to your home or Dr. three month suppy at a time.

Just recently I recieved my first shipment for a 90 day supply at no charge. It has helped bring the BS down.

You might check with Walmart. they have some of the best
prices on meds. Check with your Dr. if their is a generic.
If there is ask him or her to call it in for you.

Januvia is one of the most expensive diabetes drugs available and, in my opinion, potentially one of the most dangerous. Since it's so new it's still under patent which means that the base price will be set by the manufacturer. Some pharmacies may charge a little more, some a little less but your $80 is a lot less than the retail price. If money is an issue you should talk to your doctor about other options, maybe metformin and glyburide/glipizide/glimepiride which would run you a total of $20 for 90 days.

I dont know a discount drugstore for this drug. I too was on it. It was making my blood sugars stay danderous low, so be careful with it.
