I have mail in prescript
ions so if they write it for 90 days, I pay only one co-pay for one month. I make sure to do this.
I did the mail in w/the Asacol and yes it fit in my mailbox, I got 3 large bottles.
Also, for one of my drugs, my doc wrote the prescript
ion for 160mg even though I am at 80mg right now (I am chopping them in half) b/c just in case he wanted to increase my dosage. It took 3 weeks for my ins. co just to approve me taking it. (Diovan) luckily he had plenty of samples.
My insurance co wanted me to try other drugs first to see how they would help me then after trying multiple drugs I could take Diovan if the others did not help me. Ummm, Doc wrote them a letter and they did it.
