My dr. gave me a script for the brand klonopin. My pharmacy called and said it was as much as a mortgage payment & I have insurance. I was shocked. The generic works but I felt sometimes I need an extra one so I wanted to go back to the brand. Well I was in for a rude awakening. It was close to $500 for just a 30 day supply. These pharmaceutical companies are making billions and sort of forcing the generics on us as most of us don't have a choice due to the exorbitant cost of brand medicines. So naturally I got the generic but it's crazy, who can afford the brand anymore!! Something should be done about that as it is unfair. I couldn't imagine what the cost would be without insurance. No wonder people have to go ********.
