who what when where why?

who is in charge of me?

When part of the reason I take medication is to help me recall important things in a timely fashion, what will make me remember to take my medication daily?

( i will bet there is an email based medication reminder service out there somewhere)

Why does my credit union give me a discount prescription card that does not actually discount my prescriptions?

How come there are so many consonants in the word prescriptions?
Why doesn't the KING of retailers W- mart, carry Concerta in their pharmacy?

What more can I be than I am already being, when I get organized and up to date with all my paper work and financial crapola?*

*The word bullshit was contemplated, but there may be young readers.

Wal-Mart doesn't carry Concerta??Are you kidding me???
When I was on the antidepressants I had to go to Yahoo! Calendar and have e-mail reminders sent to myself every morning. I know I'm much more likely to remember to check e-mail than to take medicine, especially when it was medicine I didn't want to take anyway ;). Just a thought! :)

My doctor asked me how the Adderall was working and I told him it was okay. I wasn't really feeling it that much anymore. I've maxed out at 30mg. So, he told me about Vyvanse which is basically the same thing (same company) but the effects last longer. Instead of the effects tapering off around 4 or 5, this one lasts until the evening. (I take it at 7 a.m.). So far, I like it. I noticed a difference immediately. My focus is back. I don't know if that's because I built up a tolerance to the Adderall after being on it for 2 years, but so far, so good with the new one. It's been a week. We'll see how it goes.

prescription drug card said...

i got a prescription card that ehlps me alot with my prescriptions. Since the loss of my company insurance, I now realize my out of pocket costs. Two of my medications Norvasc and Buspar cost over $400. I began a long and tiring search on the internet for any program that could cut this cost. I found out a disgusting fact, that they could only save me on an average of 3-6%, and one had the audacity to charge a $100 membership for this. I signed up with your program, and got on the phone with the pharmacies to see if it would really work! The program saved me $72.86 today. This will approximately save me $220 this year.
