Escalating cost of Armour Thyroid.

From: peggyoreilly - 3 years 21 weeks ago

Seven months ago, I paid 38 dollars at CVS in New York City for 100 tablets of Armour Thyroid. Yesterday, I paid 65 dollars for the same thing, also at CVS. This is an old drug. Can someone tell me what's going on? Thank you. Peggy O'Reilly.

Is this good advice?

Yes!! The manufacturer used to be Forrest Pharmaceuticals. Actavis (NYSE:ACT) completed the acquisition of Forest Laboratories in 2014, and Actavis is now owned by Allergan. This is the BIG PHARMA result! If it is a problem, write to Activis to enroll in the Patient Assistance Program. All the Big Pharma companies offer assistance to patients on their drugs. should do it.

Please let me know which CVS you used because I just paid $40 for 30 pills !

I used the CVS at 82nd St. and First Ave. NYC. March 3, 2016, they tried to charge me 125 dollars. I went ballistic and they dropped the price to 70 dollars. Where is your CVS pharmacy? Peggy O'Reilly.
