Question about insurance and what they will pay for as far as my pain meds

Hi everyone,

My doctor has put me on Oxycodone 10mg, 4x/day. I've been having to pay cash for it b/c the pharmacy said the drug at that dose is not in their formulary. I asked and found out they will pay for the 5mg Oxycodone. Should I ask my doctor to write for the 5mg, and just double up to get to to 10mg (with his recommendation of course!)... just wasn't sure if anyone else has run into this and how you and your doctor handled it.

I found an online discount pharmacy card that I've applied for to see if they are able to help with this too.

Thanks all!!
