I have ADHD. Recently, like yesterday I got a refill 20 mg #60 without insurance that cost $80. This is exhorbitant compared to the 27 or 28 dollars, i was paying a month ago. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

I have only been taking Adderall (not XR) 20 mg for 2 months and have paid right around $37 for 30 so $80 for 60 does seem a bit high. I get my RXs at Walgreens. You may want to shop around as I found the costs vary quite a bit from pharmacy to pharmacy. I also, when calling various pharmacies, found that the 30 mg pills were less than the 20 mg ones. Go figure! Sorry I cannot give you info on increases in price over time as I am new to this.
Tell me about it! There was no Adderall 20 mg to be had in my town at all. None of the pharmacies had it. I went on a wild goose chase trying to fill my Rx and ended up having to return my script and have it rewritten for 10 mg pills which I was finally able to track down at Target. Of course, I paid top dollar for that since I needed twice as many and it seems the lower the mg the higher the price. Do you think it's simply a matter of supply and demand? The more demand the greedier the pharmaceutical companies become?
Hey all.. Been officially diagnosed for about a year, always had insurance...recently lost my job and insurance. I take 20 mg / 3 a day...I take the instant release because I like the "control" over whether I need the whole thing or not. Anyway, I went from paying $10/mo for 90 tabs, and now it's $120. I'd say there has been a significant price hike!!!

Wouldn't still use it if I was able to be a normal human without it...
The Average Wholesale Price of Barr Labs Generic Adderall 20 mg. in the year 2009,
was $137.16 for one bottle of 100 tablets. NDC #00555-0973-02 for this Schedule
II medication. My source is from the 113th year of a Thomson Reuters Book for pharmacist's and pharmacy owner's who choose which competitor's product to stock.
I am uncomfortable quoting the exact title of the book or ISBN # because of the rules
of this board. Note: As we all know, Barr Labs was bought out in a merger, in late December of 2008, by Teva US, generic Adderall known as Amphetamine Salt Combo.
I have been on Adderall since, the year 1999, to this very day. The Brand Adderall 20mg
manufactured by Duramed, (now, another division of Teva, US, Average Wholesale
Price for the year 2009, was $343.33 for one bottle of one hundred 20 mg Adderall. When I started taking brand Adderall, in 1999, it was made only in brand name, with
patent protection, by Richwood Pharmaceutical Inc of Kentucky, who bought the
manufacturing rights from Obetrol Division, of Rexar, Inc, Brooklyn NY. in 1993.
I also took Dexedrine Spansule 15 mg. for ten years, and, the cash price, at CVS
pharmacy chain for 60 Extended Release Smith Kline Beecham, later, Glaxo Smith Kline,
was a range from, $86.00 to $92.00 in the time span 1999 to 2008. The price increased
in 2009, Average Wholesale Price, that year, increased to $300.06 for one bottle of 90
Dexedrine Spansules, with the famous tapered end capsule. Generic Adderall, it appears has experienced a price increase, since 2009, by Teva US, of Sellersville, PA.
That is all I am comfortable sharing, I do not want to break any rules. I am a 63 yr old male, I got my ADHD diagnosis in June 1994, and have been on C-II stimulants ever since June 28, 1994. I hope the shortage from last year is over for all of us, and the
apparent price increases. In 1994, when Adderall, was marketed for the first time by
Richwood Pharmaceuticals, the Average Wholesale Price was $67.03 for one bottle of
20 mg. tablets (one hundred count). "Obetrol" was marketed that final year, 1994, at the identical price, during the transition, and was formerly manufactured year round since at least 1965. I have the source book in my lap, but I shall refrain from giving out
the source, again, trying to abide by the rules of this forum.
