Well, I found out why Lukas' prescription went from a co-pay of $69 to over $150. Being that his seizure medication now has a generic available, they took the Lamictal off their approved drug list. Why don't I just go with the generic? Because when the generic came out, pharmacies were being told to switch to the generics, without even telling people. And the results was people having break-through seizures. Generic drugs do NOT have to be the exact formulation. They just have to be kind of close (like 20% deviation).

This just SUCKS!!!! I am so angry at the medical community! $1,341 a month for medical insurance, and we still end up paying thousands a year for medical care. And Lukas wouldn't have to have seizure medication if the doctor wouldn't have screwed up when he was born. I HATE the medical community!

That just plain sucks, Betsy. I'm sorry the insurance company took the lamictal off the approved drug list :(
