Morning all. I'm new here and I'm just looking for some feedback from other Type II diabetics. Do all y'all have to see your doctors every 90 days religiously in order to get your meds refilled? My internist just filled a prescription for me for Januvia? I have an appointment with him for the end of the month, which is 102 days after my last visit? He only gave me 12 pills. 12. I still had to pay a full $30 co-pay for the 12-pill-prescription, and in 13 days I'll have to pay another $30 co-pay for a new prescription because my internist is such a you-know-what. Does it have to be this way? I have a friend whose doctor literally gives her a year's prescription for Metformin. Her numbers are no better than mine.
I'd appreciate knowing how it is for others, because right now I'm ready to stop taking my meds altogether. If this is the kind of aggravation I'm going to have to put up with every three months for the rest of my life, I might as well take my chances with running and dieting.
Thanks for any feedback you can offer.
