Thysurance Woes From A Choice Thyrella
Written by: Sharen
Well, went to pick up the medication that the insurance company wants me to take, and not my cytomel, and the pharmacist questioned me continuing due to my not catching my breath, high blood pressure and I looked horrible. She said if I must, take the friendly bennadryl a half hour before I take this drug.
Got home and I received the letter from the insurance company stating that the cytomel is not on their list of drugs and I have to continue with their choice!
So, I called my thyroid doctors office and talked with Becky who is a dream, and told me to talk as little as possible, for she could hear what I was going through. She looked up the company and she will try to reach them and try to do what they want her to do so that I can have my medication. She will also talk to the doctor about my reaction to this medication, should I just go cold turkey?!
As I am sitting here writing to you, I am pondering other avenues to look down. I know that I have been given this challenge for a reason, so I am wondering, where this road will lead me…
