I talked to the doctor about feeling sick. They called me in levaquin. It cost me out of pocket 30 dollars for 5 pills. and that was on top of what my insurance pays. Why do these drugs have to call so much! It's killing me. If it wasn't for insurance it would cost 24 dollars per pill. I don't think I can afford to be sick. sad

Thanks Stacie, it's just so frustrating. My deductible in only 50.00 but my catestropic cap is 3000.00. So until I hit 3000 it costs me 25% of every doctor or perscription. I can understand how people have o choose between medicine and food. Just having a bad days. sorry I know you are all in the same boat.

Carol,

   ((Hugs)) I know what you mean about the high cost of meds and docs. I have medicare part D for rx's and it has a huge doughnut hole where it doesn't cover any cost at all. You would think the government could do better than that! I mainly have to work part-time just to pay for meds but when I hit that "Doughnut Hole" I still can't afford to take them on a daily basis.

 (((((Bab's)))))You know it's so frustering because these should be normal  drugs if the real awareness about this disease was out there. Why should we have to take these drugs every other day just to stretch them further. mad How one lousey pill could cost so much or one shot could cost 2000 dollars. skull . Ok I'll stop ranting. I just hope at 24 bucks a pop it clears up my lungs and keeps me out of the hospital. It's the same meds as they gave me when i was in the hospital only these are pills instead of IV.

 

Hope your feeling ok and not to many doughnut holes!

hugs
