Fill a 90-Day Supply to Save

You may find that filling a 90-day supply will reduce your total cost for this prescription. As an added bonus, you'll make fewer trips to the pharmacy, saving you time and money.

A couple of things to keep in mind: first, you may need a new prescription from your doctor that allows you to fill a 90-day quantity. Your insurance plan may also require that you fill through a mail order pharmacy for fills of more than a 30-day supply.

Cheaper Alternative

There may be other prescriptions in the same class (that work in the same way) that could treat your condition just as well at a much lower cost.

If you're taking an expensive brand-name-only drug, it may be worth asking your doctor if there are any other less expensive, generic, or over-the-counter options that might work for you.

When Will the Generic Be Available?

It is possible that Nexavar may become available as generic sorafenib tosylate after January 2020. Generics are typically much cheaper than the branded version of a drug.

This is the earliest possible generic release date based on patent expiration at this time. It is possible that sorafenib tosylate could become available sooner or later, depending on FDA approval, other patents, and whether any manufacturers decide to make a generic version of Nexavar.
