Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am very sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Did your primary care physician ever indicate why she was prescribing this medication at such high doses and contrary to the black box warning?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
Thanks Tina, my primary internist did mention the black box warning and continuously said my liver results were bad (high) and kept doing blood work and telling me to limit alcohol to one drink a day.
The Psychiatrist who prescribed it (its a triplicate scrip so the internist doesn't prescribe) said that it is not FDA approved over 70mg so he would have to get "creative" for him to be able to give me 100mg per day. When he prescribed 1 per day 50mg and 1 per day 30mg my insurance company viewed it as 2 doses per day and wouldn't approve it. It is supposed to be used once per day so there isn't abuse. So he tried two 50mg's 1x per day (so it appeared as 100mg 1x) and it went through, so that is what I used from June 2012 through March 2013.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
Thanks again. Do you think it is important to get records from my Psychologist who referred me to the Psychiatrist to prescribe the meds - they're in bed together - and one made sure I saw the other regularly so the cash was flowing on both ends. Hers would be "notes from her couch" more than medical records.
Then there are the doctors, ER's, hospitals, etc. who treated me for the various side effects.
Or is the suit really towards the Vyvanse prescribing doctor (Psychiatrist) alone or both the Psychiatrist (prescriber) and Internist (live enzyme concerns)?
