View Full Version : Generic For Urelle
03-21-2009, 02:13 AM
Long story /short. I am on Medicare and Tri Care For Life(husband did 30 years in Navy) and we get out persctiptions through the Tri Care. I was getting Urelle for a bout a month and then all of a sudden Tri Care won't pay for it as they say there is a generic for it.After some detective work on the part of CVS drugstores they were able to find it and get approval from Tri Care to pay for it.
It's called UTA CAPSULED S-J
It's a dark blue capsule and the dosage is one in the morning and one in the evening.I got a 30 day supply for a co pay of $9.00.I haven't had to take one yet because I'm doing so well with Elmiron Instillations right now. I will post what it is like when I do have to use them but didn't want to wait to post about the availability of it.

On the web site link below, the adult dosage recommendation is 4 capsules per day, which would be the same dosage as Urelle. Of course no everyone requires four per day, but it is safe to take them that often if needed. I wonder why your doctor thought you needed less than the regular standard dose.
Thanks for the info. Urelle is awfully expensive.

Bah humbug...just called Walmart pharmacy, they don't carry it but could order it but said it is NOT a generic AND pricey...$127 for 100 caps...I asked if I could get an rx for fewer caps and she said no, it only comes packaged as 100 caps! Anyway, we FINALLY just got a CVS in town so I will call them as well as Walgreens.

I don't know why the dosage was changed.....and he gave me 6 refills. I have never used Urelle daily but maybe he was trying to get me maximum amount of medication for the least co pay. I'll ask my Gyn Wednesday when I see him for another instillation.I will use one of these before I go for the instillation because my Urethra doesn't like the catheter.

Ok, called Walgreens, they could order it but even MORE pricey (like $50 more) but they said they could Rx it in scripts of less than 100 caps. They also carry Utira-C but it was just $10 cheaper.
Called CVS...again, pricey, not a generic but they do have it in stock.
