My MD Dr. wrote a RX for Victoza… my insurance turned me down!
Then I went to my boss's Diabetic Specialist… because she was getting it thru RX from him… Well, when I went to the specialist.. I returned to the pharmacy… to be told AGAIN that CVS DOES cover it.. BUT THAT VICTOZA DOES NOT SELL IT IN THE QUANITY THAT THE INSURANCE COMPANY WILL COVER IT FOR! this is nutz!… My boss was unclear about her insurance… I was under the impression that we share the same board of ed policy.. but evidently.. she has a different set up?… so the end result? I'm can't afford to purchase it! I was wondering if any body had found a way to resolve that issue?

I'm in dire need of victoza pens, I'm on a fixed income and cannot afford $300 for them, I had a heart attack last month and I'm on about 18 different prescriptions & can't get any help. Thx in advance if anyone can help.

Does anyone have any victoza pens they do not need. My insurance will not cover. I can pay but not a large amount.

Yes, I too run into a donut hole with Medicare and on my fixed income I can't swing the huge prices all the time. I would be interested in obtaining someone's that they not longer need and have not expire red to help some at least, It really does help me and gives me the energy to help fight my breast cancer. If anyone has some, please email me small

Hello folks, I'm Rob.
My father has a bunch of Victoza pens that he would like to sell/give away. He wants to give them to someone who needs them, but at the same time cut his losses too. I'm sure if someone is in need he'll just give it to you. But do know that he paid a lot of money for them.

I don't know much about them, but about half of his boxes expire in October 2015 and the other half expire in February 2016. They're all in boxes of three, and all of them read "18 mg/3mL (6 mg/mL" and "each pen delivers doses of 0.6 mg, 1.2 mg or 1.8 mg". He also has loose pens with the same expiration date that were also kept refrigerated.

I'm unsure what to do with them, so if this forum or this post is improper, don't hesitate to let me know. Or, if anyone has a good idea on what to do with them or where to sell them, please inform.

H Rob,

I would be very interested in the Victoza you still have. I am struggling with my insurance company after a recent change and have run out about 6 weeks ago. Please contact me direct at small.

I too am looking to buy unused Victoza pens. It has out me in the donut hole in only 3 months. I cannot afford a $300 per month copay. Pres. Bush wrote the medication coverage law so that Medicare CANNOT negotiate with drug companies for better prices, although they sell to other countries for lower prices.

I have nine pens of victoza in three sealed boxes with a expiration date of December 2016. I posted last week and thought someone was interested in buying them yet haven't heard back from them. I know longer use victoza as my new doctor took me off of it last month after I ordered a refill.

My 65 year old Dad is visiting me from England… And has run out of his Victoza… He is short 9 days of it and were going to have to pay $400 for two pens?!?! Obviously he has no insurance as he's not a resident in this country and it's free to him in England… To have to pay $400 when he only needs 9 days! Well, we can't do it. Any ideas???

My Dr put me on victoza after about a month and no results Dr changed it. there is $400 wasted. Still have like 6 pens lol.
Did you ask your Dr about getting it in the vial instead of flex pen.

Some of the manufacturer websites will sell lantus , victoza etc for $25 a box. Sometimez a specual quantity.
There are two things. Get the dr to write for that quantity and some terms of agreememt void the price if Gov I surance is Involved. Like VA, Medicare, TriCare. Regardless if you file on I surance or not
I havd seen cases where it was more beneficial to not have the RX insurance and cards, etc. Sounds silly. But like a friend of mine has medicare part D her only med is lantus. Its cheaper to use the manu coupon

this post is over 5 yrs old and from what I read the victoza may already be sold.
