Medco Complaint - Medication - Nexium
3/1/10 Yes I hate Medco they deny me my Nexium 40mg 2x daily many times.
I have appealed and they still denied it.
Started getting acid back in fall of 2008. I have had 2 endoscopy's which I had multi ulcers and gastritis. Got rid of the ulcers. (I can not burp or throw up because of a past Hiatal hernia surgery.)I can stand lots of pain however getting acid for month at a time is almost unlivable (my poor husband has to put up with me being a ...) I get acid on a empty stomach and almost every time I eat anything. Get acid every time I bend over. I have almost landed in emergency room over dozens of times because of the pain is so bad. Don't go because what are they going to do. $2000 visit and a 8 hour wait I could not do. I am no whimp either (major back surgery and off all pain meds within 2 days). I have tried Protonix, Aciphex, Zegerid, Omeprazole, pantoprazole, Carafat suspension, gasX, soda, apple cider vinegar, cottage cheese, ginger ale, milk. Probably many other things I can't remember...The only thing I have found that works is 2 Nexium a day for me. Not 1 but 2 Nexium. (My Nexium comes from Dr. samples or from my neighbor) At $400 for 60 pills I can not afford.
Right now, I ordered some Siberian pine nut oil getting it soon and now ordering Nexium from Canada at. 59 a pill which I will be getting in 2-3 weeks. If this does not work I think I would rather be dead than live with this pain. This has kept me from family, friends and many activities, life altering YES. For me life threatening MAYBE sooooooon. If anyone has anything better please let me know.
