Re: Steve...Did you come up w/ a solution for your meds?
Steve, happy to hear that the study paid for the rest of your meds this month! That's great news. Using the 60 mgs w/o insurance for the rest of the month as ensures that your month starts again on Sept. 10th. It also eliminates the need to fill the scrip early to ensure that everything works out. Having the study pay for the meds [which is to their advantage since a change in your dose may well affect your use of BT meds] is a great solution.
I know you want to avoid any more hassles w/ the insurance company after what happened, but I don't think the 175 scrip is very complicated once you are a month past the time you picked up the 60s. It would just be 90 100s, 90 60s and 90 15s each month. The quantity for each would be well below their limits. The *only* question is whether or not they would allow three scrips of the same medication. You're right about the hassle factor - I have a fairly complicated scrip and my dr. has occasionally made mistakes - Still, it's pretty rare, and I'm learning to check the scrips before I leave the office. But, if your dr. thinks the 5 100s will work well [you *could* try a two week scrip in case they don't - more hassle since you would have to go back to get the second scrip, I know, but if you find your BPL is messed up or that you have to get up in the middle of the night to take your medication, it might be nice to be able to switch to 175 after two weeks. On the other hand, with all the hassle you've gone through, I can see why you would like to keep everything as simple as possible and avoid problems. It also sounds like it's a trek to your dr.'s office so getting a 2nd a 2nd scrip mid month [again] would be another hassle.
Glad it all worked out!
If I remember correctly, you get Endo and think it's good? I'm looking for an alternative.
