- Sep 1, 2000Lora.... I'd call the pharmacy manager and complain and expect your extra 2
weeks supply to be covered for that $15 you already paid. Use your power to
COMPLAIN LOUDLY and make a difference :) Who knows when the next hepper
might thank you for it :)
I used to do my shot at nite. Cause everyone telling me how awful the sides
were. However, I feel much better doing treatment than I did with the hep
sides I had before!! No more joint pain and no more muscle aches.
I've moved my shot to the am now, cause after 3 months buildup in my system,
it acts like a stimulant and why not sue that to my advantage? haha since my
doc recommends as little caffeine as possible.
My pharmacy part of my insurance is covered by Caremark. I pay $15 brand
name/$5 generic for a months worth of meds (not the combo) at any pharmacy
or I can have 3 months worth of a prescription mailed to them to be shipped
to me for $15 (for name brand), $5 for generic.
Now the combo is sent FedEx directly from the Caremark supplier. I get 3
months of combo for $15.
Some insurances allow you to get 3 months if you have the script mailed to
them and they can mail it to you. Check out yours and see if they do.
You never know what your sides will be, and they will change over time. My
doc recommended taking ibuprofen or tylenol about 30 minutes before and take
as needed. I never needed it, but many others do. Your doctor will help you
(or should) with any sides you may experience.
I hope you are on a good anti - depressant prior to beginning treatment!
Interferon is a known depressant. It screws with your brain chemistry. And
antidepressants usually take at least a few weeks to kick in fully (and you
can't just stop them immediately.. they must be weaned off)
I began taking Zoloft and wow did I notice that I immediately slept much
better, and had more energy as a result! But it made me feel kinda dull, so
I tried Celexa. It wasn't for me, so now I'm on Effexor XR and it seems to
be just the right one for me. Sometimes it takes trying several to find the
Good luck! And let us know how it goes
