I've tried twice to get Contrave but have been denied using the discount card because I have medicaid. I don't understand why they won't help people who have this type of insurance. My insurance will not cover it, I'm paying cash but they still turn me down for it. Does anyone know if taking the bupropion and naltrexone separately would be the same as taking contrave? Does anyone have any experience with that or any help they could offer? I'm so discouraged after being turned down over something so stupid.
