Got a call today from doc office that insurance company won't authorize a prescription of Victoza now that my samples have run out, I've lost 16 pounds in five weeks, and BG is almost always in the normal range. There's five meds I have to have tried in the last 6 months for two months, with no success to be able to get the new drug. Two of the five I've been on, one was metformin which the doc took me off of cause it was damaging my kidneys. But I have to retake it for two months and amaryl too. Two of the others is Jenuvia & actos.
So the way I see it, off the Victoza which has proven to be great, take the recommended drugs which more then likely will have me gain weight back if not go higher and not control my BG. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But without the insurance company paying the bulk of the meds bill, I couldn't take anything. I'm not stressing out at all, naw.
