    Mine are about $50/month, but I only pay $5 with my prescription plan.  Some prescriptions have coupons, though, so yuou might check the manufacturer’s website.

    With my prescription plan I only pay $10 for the generic version but for the name brand version I pay $50.

    I still take mine and they are free. 🙂 Really though what’s the difference between your brand name and generic? Why does he want you to switch?

    @HopingToBeaMama:  Same thing here. She wants me to take a specific name brand and it costs $48 per month. It’s ridiculous, but obviously it must be worth it.

    My OB was incredibly generous. Since her office was constantly getting samples, she supplied her patients with the sample boxes of vitamins. I seriously never once had to fill the prescription during my entire pregnancy!

    What’s the difference between normal prenatals and prescription prenatals?

    I asked my doc for a prescription cause I thought they would be covered by my health care plan. turns out they aren’t – so it’s $35 for a 30 day supply.

    I got a 3 month supply of generic brand at costco for $9 🙂

    @PinkMagnolia:  The prescription ones usually have 1,000 mcg of folic acid, while the OTC ones cannot have more than 800 mcg folic acid.

    Mine are $12 for a 3 month supply.
