  • Detrol LA

    I just had a quick question....does anyone know if detrol LA is extremely expensive? I went to pick my perscription up today and they said it would be 350.00 for three months worth (90 pills) there another option that is a little less expensive, and yes there is no generic. Thanks!

    I use Ditropan 5mg at night & 5mg during the day if flaring. It's on the "preferred" list for my health insurance company, so the generic is only $5 for my copay (1 month)at the local pharmacy or $8.66 for 3 months by mail through my formulary.

    Here is a link to an article comparing the costs other "overactive bladder" medicines. You could take this to your doctor for a conversation

    Hope you find something that works for you--
