Advice & Tips: Taking this with the rest of your medications is key. The biggest difficultly may be how you receive your medication. If you normally go to the pharmacy and pick up your prescriptions most insurance carries require this drug to be handled through "specialty" pharmacies and delivered by mail ordering can be automatic as long as you set it up and they allow it. The company has programs to help save on costs.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
