The manufacturer (Shire) has a "patient assistance program" that may provide free or reduced-cost medications if you meet their financial need requirements.

The application form is here. (

They list household incomes for "free" assistance, but you may qualify even if you don't meet those. They specifically ask whether you have an insurance co-pay of $50+ for the medication, which you do, so you might be able to get a discount through this program.

Some people have also reported having luck using GoodRx (dot) com to shop around for cheaper prices.

Finally, Tenex (which is also guanfacine, but marketed for blood pressure rather than ADHD) comes as a generic and should be very cheap. If the specific release mechanism for the guanfacine isn't critical in your child's case, you might explain your insurance situation to the prescribing doctor and ask if Tenex / generic guanfacine might be an OK substitute.

Yes, as namazu mentioned, tenex is a viable and cheap alternative. My ds takes it 2x/day - in the morning before school, and again around dinner time.
