hi, my sister has neck pain and abdominal pain from interstitial cystitis and lesions due to endometriosis surgery. She has been on Xodol for many years. Recently she switched to Heath Partners insurance after losing her job due to her inability to work. They will no longer cover the Xodol, which she desperately needs. Health Partners may cover it is a doctor can make a good case, but her current doctor seems to be very disorganized and unable to fill out the necessary paperwork. So I'm looking for a recommendation of a doctor who takes Health Partners, who goes out of his/her way for patients, who might be familiar with pain due to many different causes, and who is familiar with interstitial cystitis and celiac disease. Due to issues stemming from her childhood cancer treatments, there are very few drugs that will work for her. Thanks.

Hello, Maura! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that your sister is having.

Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing what insurance doctor's will accept and whether or not they are familiar with the relevant conditions.

Xodol contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, the reason they may not want to cover it is likely because there are many generics available that contain these same active ingredients.

Learn more Xodol details here.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Has she ever tried any of the generic formulations?

Thank you for replying! She has tried a generic but has had a bad reaction, unfortunately. I think the medicare people don't understand this. I am not sure either, but she says she really needs the real thing. If you have any ideas of why this could be, I would love to hear them.
