Avoid the Headache: Tips on How to Save Money on Your Migraine Prescriptions

Migraines are more than headaches and they can have a significant impact on your quality of life.

Access to medication can make a huge difference in your quality of life and it's important that this element of migraine management is as affordable as possible.

If you are among the 12% of all people that suffers from migraines and you are struggling to find affordable options for your migraine treatment, here are some tips on how to save on your migraine medication.

Price Comparison

First and foremost, do your research. Preferably when your head isn't already hurting!

Most insurance companies will offer a prescription price comparison tool so that you can be sure you are using your plan's preferred (and therefore cheapest) medications. Usually, these tools can be found on the insurance company's website, but if you're having trouble finding it, don't be afraid to call and ask for it.

There are also lots of general price comparison tools that are available online and as apps for both iOS and Android devices.

Generic Brands

The biggest difference between brand-name drugs and their generic counterparts is that the generic product often costs significantly less.

Generic medication can cost up to 85% less than name brand medications due to the fact that there wasn't as much investment upfront to produce it (funding for research, etc.).

As far as the actual medication goes, generic drugs and brand name drugs are the same and will work in the same way. Generic drugs are required by to contain the same active ingredients and the same medication strength as the brand name product. 

Generic brands are just as safe and reliable as name brand drugs and shouldn't have any additional side effects.

Split Pills

Be sure to consult your doctor before trying this penny-pinching method. 

In some cases, your medication may be available in a double strength option. If this is true of your prescription, talk to your doctor about the possibility of getting the stronger pill and splitting it in half.

If your doctor approves, you could end up with twice as many doses out of a single co-pay.

Request Samples

If your doctor is switching you to a new prescription, ask if they have any samples you can try before filling the prescription.

At the very least, this will save you some money before you fill the prescription.

And on the off chance that you don't react well to the medication, you've saved yourself twice. First on what you would have paid for as much of the medication as was given as a sample and second on the whole prescription that you wouldn't have ended up using.

Fill Your Prescription Online

Online pharmacies, such as, can be a great alternative to brick-and-mortar pharmacies.

By taking advantage of them you can quickly compare prices and be sure that you're getting the best possible deal on your migraine medications.

And when you're already not feeling well, the prospect of having your medications delivered to you is an awfully attractive one.
