... went on generic we have Tricare. With in days she was picking her skin having manic episodes and was like we were not eve giving her the medication. We filed a complaint with the FDA and teva and fought our insurance for a month to get the brand name covered again. Has any one else had this happen?
Rxtech, yes, I have experienced the same thing. Tricare is government agency, I just went on Medicare for disability, also government run. When I had private insurance there were never any problems. Now that the government is involved, I have been denied about 4 meds that I have been on for years. A had to do a bunch of paper work, doctor had to write reasons why I need these meds. Some still denied. They gave me a list of meds that are (similar). I had bad reactions to some. Whenever you are in the government's hands, they call the shots. I hope you can get this straightened out. Maybe at this point your doc can write a letter to the insurance co. and let them know about the adverse reaction your daughter is having, and the may reverse their decision. You might be able to find coupons online for this medication, or pay the difference that insurance does not want to pay. It is a horrible system we are in right now, and I certainly understand your frustration. Best of luck to you and your daughter!!! Bless. Liz
