> The price is appalling!!!!!! I talked with a pharmacist at Costco today - they don't have a price, but he said I could just order it, and if the price is too high they will send it back. I'll give it a try and post what the price is. I have no health insurance and low income, so unless it is a lot less expensive, I will just have to sit on the sidelines. I have been waiting so long to try it - did not think it could cost this much. Richard


I just called my Costco in SW Ohio, and the pharmacist told me Emsam was not even listed with their supplier- McKesson. She said McKesson tells them to not give out their phone number. If you don't mind saying, where are you located? (I'm paying $540 at Walgreens, all out of pocket.)

FYI, people, I am on day #2 on Emsam. Experiencing exactly same as Robert, i.e., NO SIDE EFFECTS! + alertness, and those feelings of being easily capable of social interaction, or anything, for that matter - * EXCEPT I am having poor sleep - only 5 disruptive hours on night #1. I am also on Klonopin, and due to 2 very traumatic abuse situations, within 2 weeks, 6 months ago, (both of which I'm completely away from) I have had to titrate up from 1 or 1.5 mg. to a whopping 4 mg/day. Am not happy about that, as I well know, after the first month on ANY dosage of klonopin, it loses it's sleep 'help', and from there on foreward works against sleep.

BTW, I'm not treatment resistant, I'm side-effect/s intolerant of - now - every single oral antidepression, much less combos - all classes, and I've tried almost every one, if not every one. (Other than Remeron, which is the only one I can tolerate re my issues: upper and lower GI problems. But Remeron doesn't give me full remission, and causes a weight gain of 1 pound every 2 days. The higher dosages not only make me angry and lose their sleep help, but I actually gain MORE weight.)

Robert, please, at what pharmacy did you find that low price for Emsam? TIA.
