I think Kariva is the generic for Loestrin.  That’s what I used to take.  Loestrin is a name brand so just ask you dr what the generic is for sure.

@Pupperoni: I am also on loestrin24. Its originally around like $70/75?! With my insurance it takes it down to $46 and then with the coupon it takes it down to $24. Is your insurance not covering anything?!

I am on Loestrin FE, and buy the generic version which is called Gildess. I only pay 4.95, but I have insurance. Just ask your doctor for another low hormone pill that has a generic version. I was previously on Yaz, and Ortho tri cyclen lo. they both have generic versions.

I can totally empthize with you. I take FemCon Fe, it’s the chewable bill and it was $50 a pack and I switched to getting a 3 month supply at $110 a month. Aweful either way…. well, 3 weeks ago, I went to get my refill and low and behold, they finally had a generic form for $20 for 3 months!!! I was so happy, I nearly hugged the pharmacist. I have CVS’s Caremark as my perscription coverage. I don’t know if it’s considered a low-dose pill, but it’s worth it, if you can find the generic or a similar, cheaper one. Good luck! Good BC is hard to find 🙂
