... inner ear, diverticulosis. When on Zoloft I am able to handle depression due to pain and mild depression and the added bonus of helping with stomach issues. A year ago weaned off of Zoloft and within a month in hospital with acute diverticulitis. This spring year later insurance co. Blue Cross quit paying for brand Zoloft. Several months passed and after numerous attempts to get Zoloft brand approved by BCBS I get the word no brand. I picked up prescription for Sertraline by AUROB and it seems to be making my heart rate go up and feels like every beat is so strong. I have had this issue before with generic Zoloft and been able to go back to Brand Zoloft and I do good. Why is it $80 plus dollars out of pocket and 1.70 for generic? I usually have taken Zoloft at night and did ok, but was suggested I take in AM the Sertraline! My heart is making it so it is not where I can rest up to 89 bam to not taking it this morning to 72 bam! Anyone have this same experience? Any experience in getting brand Zoloft for less? Also note that I feel like it is as important to diverticulosis as anything
I know the feeling! I was on Zoloft for 2 years, 200mg. I went to Lexapro 20mg twice a day, because the Zoloft (I thought was interfering with my libido.) Well lost my insurance and thank god Glasgow accepted me into their free program for a year, until I got disability Medicaid. Its was the Brand name of course. My doctor had to fight with Medicaid to get twice a day approved and brand name approved!
I would personally fight my insurance on the basis if you don't have the Brand name that it interferes with both conditions. You already have a trial on your record. Let your doctor's know it's not working and try harder to get it! That's why they are there for. There are many meds in this class. Your doctor should be able to discuss the closest ones. I will friend you and see what I can find. But stand your ground with BCBS!!!
Hope this helps.
