Frustrated

Ugghhhh... I am so frustrated! I take pain meds to manage the pain caused by my fistula and the burns in my colon from the radiation treatments. My Dr is very sensitive to my needs in this matter. So anyway, we had to change my meds cause the hydro was no longer working. He gave my another script for something better. Well in his instructions he put take 2 and in parenthesis put can take three. He knows how bad it gets. Well my damn insurance company will only cover my meds if they last according to the take 2 a day. So I am having to wait for 15 days as opposed to the 10 days. He approves the refill!! He wouldnt if I was too early for a fill. I understand the pharmacy doesnt want to get in trouble. But in the meantime I have to suffer and miss work. I am hoping the phamacist can talk to the dr about this. They are right around the hall from each other. Ugghhhh... Wish me luck!

Man, was I on a rant yesterday..... whew.... So it turns out it wasn't the fault of the pharmacy yesterday. It was my insurance company playing Dr. The insurance company feels that a 12 day supply of medicine has to last you 17 days. Unfortunately, I think this is only going to get worse with all the changes with the healthcare changes here in the states. We shall see. By the way, I was able to get my medicine.

Not looking forward to all the changes in healthcare myself.  Glad you got your medicine. Have a blessed weekend.

I hope that things get better for you cutey, and that they can find a way to get you the proper qty that you need. Not being in control of how things work, cam be very discouraging, but keep communicating withe your Dr and pharmacist to see for the can find a loop hole.
