I wish I could start the day over. Its been a crazy work day with a great couple of hours at a spa, then followed with more work headaches and to top it all off prescription and pharmacy hell.
I had done my homework the other day checking with our insurance on what is covered and what is not. It was an easy answer...NOTHING. So, thinking I would start another cycle of clomid, I called arounds checking self-pay costs. Found my local Kroger was the cheapest $9 (or so they said). I'm sceptical of this because when I got it last year with a previous insurance I paid $40.
Today, i was prepared for the call from the doc about refill. Well, they want me to try Femara. Ok. I assumed Kroger would be similar to cost, but wasn't $99 for 5 pills. I authorized the filling and set to walk around the store for 30 mins.. It turned out after 20 mins they discovered they only had 3 pills. On to the next pharmacy across the street. Walgreens on the phone said 30 mins. Another 30 mins wasted, I find out they filled my prescription at the walgreens closer to my house verse the one I had called and was at! ARGH!! Finally, $90 later I leave my third pharmacy with the pills and head home. I almost started crying from being tired and frustrated. All I wanted was chocolate, but I refrained from breaking down and eating junk food. At least one victory today.
Once home, I jump online to learn about Vermara only to find they offer a coupon to make the prescription $10!!! I could not decide whether to cry or laugh. Now, frustrated even more, I go back to Walgreens and thankfully they refunded me $80. lesson learned to not try to forecast what the doc will recommend.
