Does anyone know how much clomid costs if your insurance doesn't cover it? We have to pay for 50%, so I'm trying to figure out approx. what that would be. I don't even know how it works - do they just give you a bottle of pills and you take so many each cycle or do they just give you enough for one cycle and you have to refill each cycle?

My doc only prescribed enough for each cycle. I think it would have been abou $60-70 without insurance.

I was prescribed enough for each cycle. 5-50mg pills were 30-40 bucks for generic. The second cycle I did 5 days at 100mg so that was twice the amount.

Generic is the way to go - just clomiphene citrate. When I was on 100mg/day it was about 35 for the whole cycle.

5 days at 50 mg. was 20-something. Then double it every jump in dosage. I also ordered at MedsMex and it was way cheaper, but there is a loooonnnnnggggg shipping time so order early if you go that way. Of course, my insurance didn't cover any of it.

this is canadian prices so probably no help.. but in case someone in canada needs it..

5 days at 50 mg = 23.00
5 days at 100mg= 35.00

that is for serophene

For some reason, our pharmacy (Osco) charged us the same amount for 100/month as for 50/month. It was around thirty dollars, i think.

Medsmex.com and Safemeds.com also lists under the name "Serophene" - same thing, Clomiphene citrate, just another different brand. They sell the Serophene brand for even less.

My 16 month old was a result of meds ordered from Medsmex.com. I had been paying $40 for a 50mg cycle to $150 for a 150 mg cycle when I was getting my RX's filled at Wal-Mart. I decided to give that company a try when it was suggested by others on an infertility support board. It's an on-line Mexican pharmacy who ships to the US. They warn to allow 4 weeks or so, though my order came in about 10 days.

FYI, you do not need a perscription for clomid in Mexico. You literally just order them. They came in the manufacturer packaging with insert, of course it was written in Spanish. I had nothing but positive things to say about my experience.

I got my Clomid at Costco for $15 without insurance. I don't know if that is an option for you in your area, or some other warehouse store. But maybe they do mail-in Rx's?

My clomid was $5 each for 50 mg. I had to take 5 a cycle, so I paid $25. This was at Target. ( I got pregnant after the first cycle).

I can't remember the exact cost, but under 30 sounds about right. I know that I shopped around, though, and Costco had by far the best price, if that is an option for you.

Best of luck to you!

I did this too. Taking day 5 tonight, first round. (CD 5-9) No real side effects, thankfully. Some yeast today, wiped out with probiotic yogurt (vaginally, one dose with syringe). Taking at 5-6 pm at night. Makes me sleepy earlier, but doing good otherwise. Today is CD9. Clearblue test neg. Guessing in the next few days.

I purchased my first round of Clomid at Target and I got the Generic Clomiphene 50mg and it cost me $9.00. I called Walgreens pharmacy and they said the 100mg will be 2 50mg pills a day and it would cost me double at $18.00. I hope this helps. I am only starting the first round when my next period starts so I am hoping I wont have to go to the 100mg's but at least I am ready now. Good luck to all the ladies!!!!!!!!!!!

It costs a little over 1 dollar per pill at Bestrxgenerics.com they don't ask for a prescription and it's worth the convenience of not having to go to doctor to get it.  I got pregnant off their clomid and I also have ordered an unrelated med so I know their stuff works well.
