My insurance covers DMPS – typically a compounding pharmacy (which are different than your traditional Walgreens pharmacy) will be able to make it for you. Compounding pharmacies are located all over the country. The tricky part is getting the prescription.
My copay is $50 each time – I had started DMPS with 5mg, then 10mg, then 20mg – now I’m on 30mg (the max DMPS is 35 mg). My copay is $50 (which is on the higher side because I work for a small company), but its $50 regardless of the mg, so you get more bang for your buck once you work your way up to higher milligrams.
The main cure is in ALA, which I have yet to take. I have 5mg pills ready to go. Going to start that next week.
