@melbrod -- once we've got his dosages nailed down, I'll be investigating bulk purchasing. I didn't even know that was an option, which is why I didn't ask his original vet about it. I'm bringing in his old bottle with me so the vet has an idea of what amount he was on previously. Previously, I was paying something like $21/month for his Synthyroid, which is nothing in the grand scheme of things.
