Did my Pain Doc lie to me???
2 Replies RSS
I'm hoping someone has any sort of knowledge they can add here. I am currently on Workmans Comp and the claim is active. The WC insurance company has been paying for me to see my pain management Dr. and meds he prescribes for 6 months now. Initial visit I was prescribed 80 15mg Roxicodone. By the third visit he upped my count to 120. Delaware Medicare/Medicaid is starting a New law stating "Medicare/Medicaid patients who are being treated for Non-Cancerous Chronic pain are limited to 240 15mg Oxycodones per year and/or 60 30mg Oxycodone per year beginning March 1, 2012". My PM Doc said that because of this "after I give you this months dose, (120 15's which made everyday life manageable at best) you will be at your limit for the year." (120 in Jan. 120 in Feb.) h... ...

This new law is complete bulls***! I have to drive over an hour just to get my medication refilled. I am not like all the others who have 3 and 4 different meds to fill. I only have the one as I told my doctor I did not want to be on a bunch of meds that I would become hooked on but this is just a bigggg pain in the ass to have to call every walmart and pharmacy in town and 2 towns out just to get a script filled. this is just a waste of time. And costing us as patients more money as my doctor has now moved my appointments to every other month instead of every 3 months and I am a cash paying customer as I have no insurance to help with anything. Someone needs to give the DEA a brain and let them see all the trouble they are putting those of us who are responsible with our medications th... ...

Are there any web-based doctors that can write prescriptions legally for oxycodone. I failed 1 out of a million drug panels that were given to me by pain management & I was self paying due to no insurance & waiting on a disability hearing so until I receive SSI disability I cant receive help from medicaid & I'm living off a workers comp settlement plus help from family because I can't work.

I'm looking for a doctor opera medication management um I've been on xanax or a long a long. Of time and it seems to work well I have no health insurance so I be paying by cash ## Your biggest issue might be from seeking a new doctor and trying to ask for a specific medication. Most doctors see that as being drug seeking behavior. Generally, your best bet when seeing a new doctor, is to make sure they get a full copy of your medical records, or take one with you. Doctors are usually more prone to follow the diagnosis and prescribing practices of their colleagues.

Those aren't controlled substances, so a doctor shouldn't have a problem prescribing them, if you're paying cash. What state you in? There is more than one Avondale in the U.S. and knowing the state would enable someone to recommend a doctor in your area, if they know of one. ## Thank you. I'm in Avondale Arizona. ...

180 Days almost up for Teva's Generic Adderall XR??
28 Replies RSS
I am currently without insurance and I had to pay $275 (cheapest I could find) for my GENERIC Adderall XR 20mg/60 count. I have read that Teva was the only one to produce the generic version for 180 days from the launch date, which was 4/2/09. My math indicates their 180 days will be up in two days (9/30/09) but I can't find out if any other companies are going to be producing the generic which should drive the price down significantly. Does anyone have any information about anyone else producing the generic Adderall XR 20 mg other than Teva/Barr? The generic name is Dextroamphetamine+amphetamine mixed salts, extended release. I cannot keep paying almost $300/mo for medication. I take it for narcolepsy and cannot function without it. So I am stuck between a rock and a hard place her... ...

Will Govt Ins Dismiss You If Pay Cash For A Pain Doctor
1 Reply RSS
If you cant find a pain management doctor who takes your govt. ins. And you pay cash for a pain doctor, will you lose you govt. ins.? ## Hello, If the pain doctor won't take your insurance, I don't see why they would penalize you for paying cash. Since they don't take the insurance, then you don't really have any other choice. I'm sure every pain center/insurance policy is different though, so there is no way I can fully answer that question for you. Have you called the Government program that provides your insurance? I'm sure that if you let them know about your situation, they will work with you. Good luck! ...

generic for detrol
Post a Reply
My insurance coverage doesn't allow for me to use the Name brand Detrol LA, so they have substituted the generic form. I have found that it doesn't work. I find I am running to the bathroom just as often as before the on the generic. The name brand did work fine. A little frustrating. The generics should be required to work the same way before being mandated to be a comparable substitute. These are drugs you are taking with side effects and conditions that need to be properly addressed. We are still paying for these sad replacements. ...

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. ...

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.

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... ...

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.
