Advice & Tips: Cigna won't cover this through CVS as of 5/2014 Dr said they appealed, have heard nothing, so I wonder about that. I have been taking this medicine for a decade, there's no reason that I see why this isn't covered even if it IS a C-IV.

Advice & Tips: It keeps me awake, which was perfect when I worked 12-hour days. I makes me pretty irascible, but if I take 20mg of fluoxetine with it, my moods are just fine. I wish this wasn't a C-IV controlled substance, it would be easier to get it refilled, but I never have been denied, there's just an extra form the doc has to fax to the pharmacy.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
