Cost of antidepressants in CH

Hi

New here, so be gentle

Does anyone know how much it costs to buy Citalopram and/ or Sertraline in CH?

I have googled and searched on here but to no avail...

Thanks in advance

SwissMB

Re: Cost of antidepressants in CH

Liquid Sertraline (human med bought for my dog, so I pay full whack at the Apotheke) costs IIRC 60-something for a 60ml bottle.

Plus the advice charge - which while only about CHF 4 still riles me because the pharmacist cannot advise on veterinary use. But that's another thread...

I seem to remember the tablet form was somewhat less per dose, but we switched to liquid long ago so my memory is hazy. I'll see if i can find a receipt.

Re: Cost of antidepressants in CH

https://compendium.ch/fr/product/121...cpr-pell-20-mg

Small box (28) 26.70 CHF
Big box (98) 69.00 CHF

https://compendium.ch/fr/product/108...cpr-pell-50-mg

Small box (10) 16.15 CHF
Middle box (30) 38.25 CHF
Big box (100) 86.95

If you are ok with generics make sure to ask for them at the pharmacie.
Pricing above should be for generics.

Some health insurance companies have deals with specific pharmacies.
Ex. Assura with Sunstore
A few francs can be saved on tax etc in those cases.
So check with your insurance.

Re: Cost of antidepressants in CH

Just to add, sertralin-mepha 50 mg is also 86.95 for a box of 100, so I think this is the generic.

Name Brand is Zoloft.

In fact, the name brand is chf 109 for 50mg box of 100

Obviously they are covered by your health insurance, so you only have to pay up until you reach your franchise.
