RE: [IP] How Does Your Physician Write Your Insulin Prescriptions?



Its not the pharmacy it is the Insurance Company. The pharmacy will give you
as much as the doctor prescribes IF YOU PAY FOR IT.

 I've never understood how a pharmacy can legally reduce the amount of
medication that a prescription specifies and blame
it on not being able to round it up to the next whole bottle.

 How can they short you medication when the prescription explicitly says
what
you need to function?

My Pharmacy pulled the same stunt and actually decreased the amount from
3 to 2 then when they decided one bottle was enough AND the lady said
maybe you can get off Insulin soon.  I had had enough and switched all
my presciptions back to the mail order three monthly supply.

Given the number of bad bottle of Insulin I have had over the years this
is entirely too risky.
