ExpressScripts is 4-0 in my book
It has been a Godsend to me husband. who died last May. My meds for cancer and glaucoma were so costly. A fellow Navy man led us to Express Scripts. I had free coverage from the company I retired from and was paying alot above their 5% coverage for meds and doctors. I gave up that insurance to qualify for TriCare and Express Scripts and we've never been sorry. L.M. Evans ...

I would just like to know the cost of this medication. I take it for my blood pressure. I pay $52.00 a month for a dug prescribtion plan and was paying $7.00 a month co-pay. Now they want to rise it to $14.00 a month. I just want to know if I can, or nee to do something about this. ## The price can vary from pharmacy to pharmacy, it also depends on the amount you are buying, as well as your insurance. Unfortunately, I don't have that information to help you. Have you tried checking with other pharmacies in your area? Have you checked with your prescription plan to see if anything has changed? My sources list the price for 30 tablets as anywhere from $60 to $65, depending on the dosage. ...

Crestor Canada Savings Card
is there a canadian savings card for crestor like they have in the states they offer a 50.00 dollar savings so a person only has to pay about 18.00 ## In the U.S. a prescription for Crestor actually starts at around $155 USD, so they actually still end up paying over $100 if they don't have insurance. Drugs here are nowhere near as cheap as they are in Canada. And no, I'm sorry, but the only savings card I can find is only good in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Have you tried asking your doctor if there is a generic alternative that you can use? ...

metformin for an 8 year old?
My 8 year old daughter is apparently pre diabetic. Her fasting insulin is 44 which shouldn't be over somewhere around the low to mid 20's, I think was said. At a follow up appointment today w/ her pediatrician he order a couple more blood tests for liver enzyme level and lactic acid. He stated that if these tests are normal he wants to start her on Metformin. Naturally, I begin my Google search and see that it's not recommended for children under 10. Concerning? Yes. In a different situation this happened and my insurance wouldn't even consider paying with or without a prior authorization for the physician. Problem #2. I guess. Anyway a little history. ...She is, in my opinion, severely overweight at 127 lbs, is 1/2 African American, has plenty of extra waistline fat, wa... ...

Price Increase 600%
Why did Hydrocodone/Acet 10/375 increase 600% since last year? I have been taking the medication for over 13 years after a 6 doctor team labored for months com up with something that would relieve my lifelong pain from a 2-story fall. I have been paying $6.00 /mo for 270 tablets, until this year. I went to pick up my refill an it was $35. Insurance moved it from Tier 2 to Tier 3 with no explanation. Does anyone know how to find out why this happened, did Exxon.Mobil buy the company? ## Hi Doug, Perhaps it's simply supply and demand, lately it seems as though there has been a steady increase in patients needing narcotic pain medication such as Vicodin. Have you compared prices with any other pharmacies in your area? ## My god, at either of those prices I'd be jumping up and down ... ...

Has anyone tried the Omedex Plus 40 mg Esomeprazol as a substitute for Nexium. I bought some in Mexico but haven't tried it yet. It is a clear capsule with with pellets inside. The pellets look like the same thing as inside the Nexium capsules. Insurance quit paying for Nexium so looking for an alternative. Thanks ## Hi Mike, Have you considered looking into any "natural" alternatives to Nexium?

is compazine safe for me
1st off let me thank you for taking the time to answer my ?... I am on Geodon an atypical antipsychotic for Bipolar Disorder. I have Gastro Paresis and my stomach doesn't empty the correct way and it causes severe nausea and vomiting. I was on Phenergan for the nausea (I tried Zofran it didn't work) but my Health Insurance stopped paying for Phenergan. So My Doctor put me on Compazine 10mg (its a typical antipsychotic). I took it years ago, and it made me restless and I felt like I had to keep moving my legs. My Doctor knows this but its pretty much my only option. I am already on Cogentin .5mg 2x day b/c the Geodon I'm on make me have tremors. I was wondering if I go up on my Cogentin dose to 2mg 2x a day if that would work. I use to be on that dose before, but my Doctor lower ...

Which is strong 15mg MS Contin or 15mg Oxycodone
I wonder what the difference is between 15MG MS Contin vs 15 Mg Oxycodone. Is there a substitute for MS Morphine..I take 2 30mg MS Contin twice a day and also with that I take 15MG MS Contin twice per day..which of course is 45mgs at a time..with 3 15mg Oxcodone for breakthru pain. I was taking 20 mg Oxycontin 3 times a day etc. But my insurance wasn't paying for the oxy. So what I take now is paid for. Do any of you have any suggestions of what would work better for the pain..since I changed to morphine it doesn't seem to do the trick..this is long..but any answers would be very appriciated..Thanks.. ## Oxycodone is actually one and a half times stronger than Morphine. So, for instance if you were taking 20mgs of Oxycodone, at a time, to relieve your pain, then the equivalent d... ...

price difference suboxone and subutex
hello all. thanks ahead of time for let me begin by saying that i am in recovery from opiate addiction. i realize that there is a bad stigma out there about these programs, but if you have the desire to get clean they really work. i have been on suboxone for a couple months and have been completely devout to the program, havent messed up once. my insurance ran out last.month, and the cost of my monthly perscription is now over $650 for two tabs a day. i have heard that subutex is significantly cheaper, and the current cost of my perscription is entirely undoable. can anyone tell me if i would save money by switching to generic subutex paying out of pocket? ## Hello, Based on my research, the difference in price between Suboxone and Subutex is pretty large. Some say that Subute... ...

Generic Suboxone no good

So, if this is applicable, then you'll need to inform your doctor of the problem, because they can designate your prescription as 'brand medically necessary', in order to get them to cover the name brand for you, again. The other alternative, if you're paying for it you... ...
