Hey Jeff sorry to hear of your insurance problem as if it's not bad enough Glaxo's rippin us now the insurance co.are cutting back.I remember when it first came out I was buying it for just less than 25$ per injection then they started selling lots of it and it just keeps going up We should have bought stock. The way I look at it you can never have enough on hand. My episodes last an average of two months .If I was lucky enough to average one CH a day thats thirty injections at half a shot each. So during those times I'm pain free I use my insurance for what it's for,keeping me well when I'm sick.I ask my doctor for the prescription to keep some on hand. Let's see at two a month I'd still need to buy half a dozen per year.Remember it's insurance right,right.I've used injections that had expired by three years and still worked fine. Here's to hoping we've all had our last episode,a cure is found and Glaxo and the other drug barons......well we can dream.
