the shots i was only allowed to get two shots a week
because of the cost (i guess)... but i found, i could
get the pills... they come 25 mg and 50 mg....and
get more of them! They come 9 to a pack of 50 mg.

Which... the 50 mg... tend to "hold you". The down side.
You have to suffer for 20 minutes waiting for them
to take hold.

anyway, i couldn't keep getting needles, but they were better
about moving me to the pills.... no problems there.
good luck! and keep trying.. .I tend to STASH all the supplys
now... if i am assigned 2 refills...whether i need them or not,
i pay my low $7 copay..and get the stuff! Cause next year, who
knows what insurance will "re-write!"... wish it were legal to
send you some of my imitrex... i got a ton of it.. needles, pills,
