Thumbs down $100 a month

that's the cost of Sarah's medications.

I went to go get Sarah's medications from the pharmacy today.
We have her on a new extended release ADHD medication (same brand, just now it's extended release so it'll last thru the school day)
plus the regular 4 hour ADHD pill she's been taking (so that when she gets home from school, she can take that and can do her homework and hopefully make it thru dinner).
Then, we will be starting a new medication for her wetting incidents.
it's a once a day pill. It supposedly dries you up throughout the day so that you don't have to go pee quite so often. (Sarah had been having accidents in school all year last year).

The grand total for one month's worth of medication for Sarah. $99.69

yes, we HAVE to have the ADHD medication.
Yes, I want Sarah to be on the wetting medication. I don't want her to have accidents in school. The kids are old enough now to know that someone wets their pants all the time and that is a horrible stigma to have to live with forever. so we need this medication to save Sarah the embarassment and all the other difficulties of having to go pee every 20 minutes (not exaggerating) and not being able to hold the pee.

And - the worst of it. That is WITH insurance.
Now tell me. What insurance thinks that a $35 copay for each perscription is sufficient???

yes, we've gone to the urologist and he says it's an immature bladder, not overactive.

I feel your pain on the co-pays! We have a $40 co pay for non-formulary RX(which most drugs our ped seems to prescribe are on ), $20 for the formulary (preferred list/brands with our insurance) and $7 for generic.

Do you have a mail in option? We can get 3 months for the co-pay of one month if we do mail in.

we do have a mail in option, the problem with that --
the ADHD medication has to be prescribed one month at a time. I can't get 'refills' because it's in that special class 1 narcotic class or something like that. So no chance for a mail in discount.
that's the other thing. Every month, I have to take Sarah in to the Dr to get a new prescription. We have a $20 office visit copay.
