... more than 9
Because insurance companies have determined that they won't pay for more. Your dr can appeal and ask for more a month if he states you need it.
I've found it's easier to just do self-pay with Sumatriptan. I tried the whole doctor/appeal process when the insurance company started limiting me to 5 pills per month (not a misprint), but the time, effort and agony just wasn't worth it. So I've just been doing a $32 self-pay for generic Sumatriptan for the last few years.
I asked my doc if there could be rebound headaches and he said it's not possible. My 1st rx was $58 with insurance, the refill was denied by insurance and they charged me $150! Then I found an app called goodrx and was able to get rx's under $15.
I had it out with my pharmacist over getting it filled to often, yes 9 tablets a month, so i use 2 pharmacies and just pay out of pocket for the generic, 20.00 . anyway, this little pharmacist was going off on me saying they need to find out why I'm getting headaches... Blah blah blah... saying that Sumatriptan can cause headaches. and in the drug side effects it does say may cause headaches. But I think this drug is just great. Haven't had a major headache in 7-8 months. which all of you know is just heaven..
