I've heard from folks that Wal-Mart has their own repackaged insulin that they sell for a little cheaper than you can get it elsewhere. It's also worthwhile looking up the contact information for manufacturers of your medications. Sometimes they have assistance programs or coupon cards they give out. Good luck with everything!View Thread
If you have insurance, you are likely to be paying the same copay no matter the strength and quantity. Call anyway to check, we are used to doing price comparisons. As if you can't tell, I work for a mail order pharmacy that also manages pharmacy benefits for insurance companies.
If you don't have insurance, metformin is a fairly common generic and may be on the different discount plans that some of the larger pharmacies and grocery stores have. Look for a flier that says something like "four hundred medications available at four dollars a month" or some such. Those discount medications don't go through the insurance plan as the store itself is providing the discount. I've used this trick to get antibiotics for two dollars when I didn't have prescription coverage.
If you end up paying out of pocket and can't find any discounts at all, it would likely be cheaper to do the 1000 mg option.View Thread
Hey Digm70, quick question for you. What did you mean by this?
"With the help from some advice from everyone I didnt crack(unlike the right eye I have extremely cracked,like a broken windshield) "
I ask because one of my eyes has this wavy branching structure inside it that casts crack like shadows across my vision. I'm trying to figure out what it is while I save up for an eye appointment.View Thread
Sometimes I have periods of uncomfortably low blood sugar. The described breakfast would be an absolute guarantee of it for me. In order to avoid issues I will either eat some left over stir fry (usually broccoli, carrots and chicken) for breakfast, or have a couple hard boiled eggs. I tend to like simple food, but for folk who like something more involved the main idea is to include some protein at breakfast such as eggs, nuts, cheese, meat, etc. If you must eat breakfast cereal, oatmeal with fruit and cinnamon is a good choice. Some seem to find that cinnamon helps their blood sugar levels to stabilize. Agreed wholeheartedly about limiting simple carbs.View Thread
