Does your ins cover prescriptions? Mine does not at all, only gives a small discount. It was $88 when I last took it, and that was over 2 years ago. I know it is over $100 now because my receipt (when I bought the generic Lexapro) said something like I saved $112 by buying generics. I like Lexapro, but not THAT much, plus I think I'm doing just as well if not better on citalopram. I get the generic; have never tried Celexa.

I buy private ins which is an arm and a leg AND covers very little because I've had trouble holding a job with my mental health issues. If I thought Lexapro would help me more, I would buy it even with the astounding cost, but I would be concerned it would raise my ins costs because ins companies like generics. It's wonderful how they operate; they don't pay for things, then when you buy them on your own, you still have to worry about it raising premiums. I'm fortunate I at least have this and don't have to play Russian roulette with Obamacare. Things like the sterilization "freebie" it's pimping concerns me just a bit (as it is politicians on both sides of the aisle)! I hope the ACA never comes to pass.
