cheapest pharmacy

Postby Baby4Me2013 » Fri Aug 09, 2013 6:02 pm

I've heard that some of the international pharmacies have the best prices, but I'm nervous about delivery time and quality.

What pharmacy do you use?

hi!

im from us... I have hmo and typically they select the pharmacy for us... but this time around I had to pay out of own pocket, bc to get approval from my ins and would take too long when my cyvle started... so I opted to pay for this cycle in hopes my ins will reimburse if they approve my injectibles... with tjat said, my re selected the pharmacy ... I guess he typically uses them... im currently using menopur ($75 per vial <75 ml>)...

good luck!

I don't have any recommendations on a cheaper pharmacy, but hopingandwishing, I was wondering if you could ask your RE about using Repronex instead. It's essentially the same thing as Menopur, just a different brand and I was able to get the 75u vials for around $50 when I was paying OOP.
