How can I save money on Lumigan?

 

Question:
How can I save money on Lumigan?

Answer:

Lumigan (bimatoprost) eyedrops are a prescribed medication used to treat certain types of glaucoma as well as other causes of high pressure that can occur inside the eye.

 

In the United States, the current average retail price of a 2.5 ml of 0.01% Lumigan eyedropper is around $225. Even with discounts and coupons available online, the price may still be out of reach for many, especially those Americans without insurance. Lumigan's generic (bimatoprost) is still quite expensive in U.S. pharmacies as well.

 

For brand-name Lumigan, you can find much lower prices internationally from a licensed pharmacy in Canada or other country. Lumigan is marketed as "Lumigan RC" in Canada. The lowest price for Lumigan 3 ml of 0.01% eyedrops among PharmacyChecker-verified international online pharmacies is currently $25 per eyedropper. That's an 89% savings on brand-name medication. You can also compare prices for the generic version, bimatoprost, using PharmacyChecker.com.

 

When comparing Lumigan prices on PharmacyChecker.com, you can filter results by comparing "Price Per Pill" or "Total Price." To order your medication, you must click your chosen verified pharmacy's logo and order through their website. Online pharmacies in the PharmacyChecker Verification Program may dispense up to a 3-months' (90 day) supply pursuant to a valid prescription.

Lumigan Patient Assistance Program

 

If you cannot afford Lumigan, and/or choose not to purchase it online, pharmaceutical companies offer programs that cover all or part of the cost of their drugs. In this case, drug company Allergan offers assistance for Lumigan to eligible patients.

Where is Lumigan made?

 

Brand-name Lumigan 5 ml of 0.01% sold in the United States (see below) appears to be manufactured in the United States and distributed by Allergan. PharmacyChecker.com also found a bimatoprost label, which reads as being manufactured in India by Lupin Limited. That same Americans-made product is also distributed internationally.
