The new generic form of Aricept has entered the market.
I am hearing conflicting news on the price.
I checked two of the national pharmacies located in Delray Beach and received the following prices for 10mg, 30 day supply of generic aricept -- $230 and $253. Both prices are near the the price for the brand drug. (see the bottom of this article for additional pricing information around the country).

  • A reader checked in with the following information. She found:10mg Qty-30 for $160.00 at Total Care Pharmacy in Dry Ridge, KY.

  • Just spoke with a pharmacist at a local CVS. They have the generic in stock and said the cash price was $130 cheaper. They don't have our insurance info, so I couldn't get anything more exact.
