Actually, they per contract, they must give you AT LEAST a 30 day 
supply. If the vials are 1000 units and 2 is not enough, then they 
have to give you three. That's an argument that is easy to win, just 
time consuming. If they give you a hard time, complain to the state 
insurance comissioners office.
