Customer Question
I’m currently taking 800...

I’m currently taking 800 mg APTIOM once a day. My insurance will not cover it. Is there anything my doctor can prescribe that is just as good but cheaper?

Doctor's Assistant: Have your parents or grandparents had any neurological conditions? If so, who and which ones?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I’ve been going to him since 1990.
