If your plan only covers 20mg size, consider yourself lucky! Godless BeanCounting Medco only specifies in 5mg x 15 for me. So if you get more than 4 x 20mg a month consider yourself lucky again.
But getting more out of an insurance company could a mixed blessing. For instance, in my case they charge (to me) about
$1 per 5mg. If i somehow were to get enough for, say 20mg every other day the cost would probably go up by 4 times.
But, no worries mate. Just look into off-shoring some from a place like All Day Chemist. about
a dollar each for full dose 'generics'. (and use your local coverage as a supplemental (but meager) addition to the main stash
(also like Worried, even 20mg does nothing for me yet .. can't say for 'blood flow' -- since i have not shriveled up to nothing I guess it is helping there!)
