Read the Riot Act By My Doctor.

I will admit out loud that I don't always take my Acid Reflux medication. I believe that my Acid Reflux is under control so why take medicine, that I have a hard time affording. Well, I went to go see my doctor yesterday and he gave me the riot act over this. He told me that even if I felt fine I had to take the medication. That some of us take Acid Reflux too lightly but it can lead to serious complications including Cancer. I guess he is right, I shouldn't be taking my chances, yes financially I am strapped, but I am just going to have to figure out how to get the medication filled and taken regularly.

I really understand how you feel, especially when it comes to financial issues. My doctor has been known to read me the riot act on some things as well, and when I try to explain that I am sometimes financially unable to take care of things, he seems to ignore me. In fact, I've had quite a few different doctors in the past act the same way. I wish there was some type of suggestion I could give you, but I just wanted to know that I can relate, and I feel for you. :)

Yes, I have tried the I can't afford it to my doctor as well. As you stated it doesn't work, they don't want to hear how we can't afford our medication. For them there should be no price on our overall health, and I guess they have a point. Just that sometimes its hard to financially fill your prescriptions.

I also understand your problem. What I do, as I have acid reflux, is to take a piil every other day sometimes. I don't seem to experience any problem.
