Prescriptions when you don’t have insurance coverage
Without prescription insurance coverage, generic doxycycline’s cash price is approximately $80-$100 depending on the pharmacy.
The best option in most cases: a GoodRx.com coupon
Usually, the better option is “doxycycline monohydrate capsules 100mg, #30 capsules” (taking one by mouth once daily with food).
Sometimes, the best deal is “doxycycline monohydrate capsules 50mg, #60 capsules" (taking one by mouth twice daily with food).
Note that both options provide the same daily dose of 100mg/day, and they work equally on your acne! Because doxycycline monohydrate capsules 100mg, #30 capsules are the better deal at www.GoodRx.com, we prescribe this dosage.
Our nurse will always phone in the 100mg, #30 pills, unless you alert your provider that the better deal is the 50mg, #60 pills. Your provider will be happy to change your prescription.
What if my option isn’t in stock?
A pharmacy doesn’t keep every option of doxycycline in stock. Typically, the pharmacy can order your doxycycline from their supplier and can have it in stock for you in 1-2 business days. Sometimes, a particular doxycycline is “on backorder” from their medication supplier and won’t know exactly when it will be delivered. It could be a few days or a few months. In this case, you may not be able to get the bestGoodRx.com deal for the doxycycline at this particular pharmacy.
If you go to a small, family-owned pharmacy
Some small, family-owned pharmacies have a better deal than GoodRx.com coupons! Just call the pharmacy first to ask for their “best cash price for doxycycline*.” Once you find the best deal, our nurse can transmit the order for the best price doxycycline for you.
*When calling a pharmacy yourself, ask about different forms of doxycycline, including monohydrate or hyclate and capsules or tablets; 50mg #60 pills or 100mg #30 pills.
If you go to a Warehouse Club pharmacy
Warehouse Club pharmacies sometimes have deals better than GoodRx.com. Be sure to call and ask for their “best cash price for doxycycline.” Note that you don’t need to be a Costco member to use Costco to get a great deal. However, you’ll get a better deal if you are a Costco member. Costco carries the Doxycycline Hyclate Tablets 100mg, #30 tablets, which can cost as low as $15 for non-Costco members.
