    Wow, just got generic valtrex. Taking 1000 mg 3x/day. One month of 3 g is $256 at walgreens.( insurance paid $724) Is this normal? Is there another place that is cheaper?

    The cheapest pharmacy that people use on this forum is AllDayChemist, which sells Valtrex 1000 mg for $1.50 a pill.

    I paid $10. It depends on your insurance. Call around. Pricing can vary.

    @Clerner adc is reliable.

    @Hip I just ordered from a new place. When I get my order, which shipped 2 days later, I'll let you know.

    They have AV But not Valcyte. Valtrex is about $1.66 includes shipping but they have a few doses snd generics

    @Hip thanks! You all have been a wealth of knowlege! I originally felt so alone and desperate. Glad I found PR.

    Through my insurance I pay $15.00 for a 3 month supply only if I use their mail order system...otherwise 3 grams is well over $ 250.00

    Pharmaceutical costs in the US are out of control. I fully get the need for R&D, etc. but the cost that goes into direct-to-consumer marketing and marketing to doctors is inflating med costs. One med, 30 pills/30 day supply that my daughter takes is over $8,300/month. Yes, that's right. Insane. Okay, off my soapbox. @Clerner I hope you find a cheaper source like the mail order ADC recommended.

    As an update on the acyclovir and how it's working for me, I just had a PEM crash but it only lasted 3 days, one migraine, bad joint/muscle aches and weakness, and bad fatigue, but overall compared to past crashes not as hard or long in duration. So still remaining hopeful that the antivirals are having a positive effect. ~Andielyn

    Glad it is going pretty well for you. Only on my 2nd day of valtrex but only 1 g. I'm slowly working my way up to 3 g. Good luck!
