Adderall costs depend on several factors like the dosage, drug formulation (Adderall XR or IR), generic or brand-name, and whether the patient has health insurance.
Adderall without insurance costs nearly $8 per tablet, or $237.30 per month for an initial dose of one 5 mg tablet once a day. Fortunately, generic drugs are typically much more affordable than their brand-name counterparts. The same amount of generic Adderall costs less than $25 with a SingleCare coupon.
Given the variation in Adderall costs, patients should speak to their healthcare provider about their options, especially if they’re uninsured or have a high insurance copay. Doctors may recommend a cheaper alternative to Adderall, like generic Ritalin or generic Focalin. Although the cost of these medications still varies, SingleCare users can pay $16-$20 for 30, 5 mg tablets.
