... with Effexor and insurance. If so, any ways around it
Insurance companies pick and choose to their advantage. Generally, if you can find a "generic" substitute for your medication, that is the only way they will help pay for anything. I used Effexor several years ago for about a month!! I didn't care much for it. Gained weight very rapidly. Could NOT cry even if I wanted to cry. I also tried Wellbutrin and it made me very anxious. So far, Zoloft, Lexapro have been good. Prozac might be something to try. I think those are generally covered. Insurance companies are a lot like used car dealers.
If the Effexor is what works the best for you and you doctor will back it up you can file for what they call A Formulary Exception alot of times if the doctor says that is what is going to work for you they sometimes will make an exception and pay for it if not then try this program--- Partnership for Prescription Assistance--- 1-888-477-2669--- www.pparx.org
Hope this info has helped some, good luck with your appeal if you choose to do it let me know how it goes if you will, marjorie zych
