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.

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 Sandostatin Lar Depot may become available as generic octreotide after January 2017. 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 octreotide could become available sooner or later, depending on FDA approval, other patents, and whether any manufacturers decide to make a generic version of Sandostatin Lar Depot.
