No, several have been tried in the past, but this one seems to be working. She also takes Seriquil which is a very expensive medicine. Any thought on alternatives would be appreciated.
She has been on this for the longest. Before the correct diagonisis she had been on lithium, welbutrin, and celebrix that she remembers
I read this list to her, and she said she has been on all of those. She is thinking that it is so expensive for Prestiq, that she might just go off meds. She is on many psych meds (Prestiq, Seriquil, Advant, Remron, Valium) What would happen if that were the case?
She saw a psychiatrist in Florida before we moved to NY and he tried some different meds, and found that this combination seems to work the best.
That is our concern. The Prestiq is $190 and I have been told that the Seriquil os over $1000. There is no way we can afford those prices.
Do you know of any programs that could help with medications?
We do not have a psychiatrist here in NY. Sloan Kettring and her GP have been helping with prescriptions. She did have medicaid at one time in Fl. before we moved to NY last year. I am trying to help get that tranferred to NY
Yes, they are providing the prescriptions based on records from the psych that was furnished when we got here. She has not been to either Sloan or the GP since the insurance ended. I am a teacher and thought that I would be hired by this point at another school.
My wife has been diagnosed as bipolar by the psych in Fl. and she and I are very concerned.
Thank you for all your help.
