I have been sick for a few days and couldn't get into my family dr till today. I have a upper respiratory infection and sinus infection so was given a antibiotic. Got it from my husband who was sick and won't go to the drs..his med is Nyquil...well, I can't take that. I told him when he gets sick he has to wear a mask in the house and sleep in his truck and it's bitter cold here in PA.
The psychriatrist I went to wanted me on Celexa but my pharmacist said not to fill it till I saw my family dr....to many interactions. My family dr said today no to Celexa but put me on a 5mg dose of lexapro for during the day. My issue is when I got it filled it was $60 co-pay....anybody know if there is a plan that helps pay for this. My luck this is the med I need and I can't afford another extra $60 month with my other meds and seeing onc. every month at $40 co-pay and family dr $20 co-pay till she see's how this med works then we are going to every 3 months. Plus my Gleevec co-pay...the psychriatrist is out the door. My family dr spent 1 hour and 20 mins. with me today....longer than the psych. did and talked more to me also. i know there are people in worse shape than me but going from 2 incomes to 1 is very hard and our mortgage just went up cause of taxes. Anybody on Lexapro on here...the hope is to taper off the xanax after awhile or cut back to 1 to help me sleep.
Thanks in advance.....Dee
