If you have insurance or Medicare, you may find that you receive lower prices if you fill your prescriptions through your plan’s mail order pharmacy. Many insurance plans (and most Medicare plans) are now offering similar rates at a select group of “preferred” retail pharmacies. Some plans may require that you fill through a mail order pharmacy for fills of more than a 30-day supply.
To switch to 90-day fills, note that you'll need a new prescription from your doctor; a 30-day quantity prescription will not allow 90-day fills.
When Will the Generic Be Available?
It is possible that Contrave may become available as generic bupropion/naloxone after February 2030. 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 bupropion/naloxone could become available sooner or later, depending on FDA approval, other patents, and whether any manufacturers decide to make a generic version of Contrave.
