I have a prescription for it, however, of the 800.00 it costs for 2 months, my insurance is willing to pay very little. Would cost me 539.00 for the 2 months. Its not a matter of if I could afford it or not, but if it's worth it. I'd be very willing to pay if it will work. However, I'm not willing to pay that much money to lose only a few pounds. I've struggled with my weight since I was a teenager, and after having a baby at 21, things only got worse. I have managed to lose 70 lbs with diet and exercise. But I'm stuck lately, and am having an extremely hard time sticking to a diet or "healthy lifestyle" changes.
