Do you mean your insurance limits the number of pills you can have, or do they only cover a few different kinds? If it is the latter, then it would be a good idea to take that list in to your new PM doctor and let him/her know which ones you have already tried.

I wish you luck!

Mochiah is right and even if your limited as to what or how many there are a remarkably many meds without patnets that have generics that are cheaper and worth every penny if it brings about better relief.
Only the newest meds and of course oxy-c now again cost out the wazoo and why it seems so many have problems paying. Let the Doc know about any restrictions up front before prescribing something you cannot afford or is going to but you ina bind to pay for each month.
I do wish you luck and hoping this is the Doc for you!
