I am a senior and part D Medicare does not include benzonatate for coughs. My cough is from scar tissue in the lungs, not a cold.
I'm looking for a substitute on my health ins. formulary. Medicare denied me after I sent an appeal. The Rx is $135. Per month! I am on a SS fixed income.
How can they deny me when my cough is not due to a cold? Any suggestions? I'm desperate as the benzonatate is the ONLY medication that actually works for me. The other narcotic and non-narcotic pill and elixir do nothing.
Tessalon - Is there another Rx tablet which can be used as a substitute to benzonatate 200 mg.?
