Frustrations with medications
UGH. It's been three weeks since I had my meds. Here's the thing... it's considered a class C medication. Therefore, the insurance company has more say in the medication and dispensing of it than the doctor. I've been on the medication for more than 11 years now and just now the insurance is requiring a drug screen... which came out clean by the way. I also am required to see the sleep specialist at least quarterly to get a new script written even though there's no cure for what I have [life long Idiopathic Hypersomnia] and no other approved treatments. Therefore, without my medication, it's possible for me to fall asleep at the most inopportune times; driving, working, etc. And of course I can't simply pick up a paper script from the doc. because he's only "seeing" patients virtually. The last time they tried to order a script via computer or via phone, the pharmacy said that the insurance company is requiring that a physical paper script be used, but during these COVID times, that cannot happen. So... I called yet again today to find out what the Hell is going on and yet again, no real answers and no meds yet. I'm SO TIRED! I hate feeling like this! I can't believe I went 30 years feeling like this and no one listened when I spent that 20 of that 30 years telling doctors that being this tired is not normal!
Sorry for the vent. I just needed to get that out. I'm sure my husband is sick of hearing me complain.
