• Re: Generic for Lipitor

    Okay....I will see what happens in March when I reorder my 90 day mail order supply. In NYS it is not legal to change my prescription without my doctor's order. I will have to call first too to see just what the new copay is for the brand name Lipitor....It should be $100 for a 90 day supply if it is not preferred....I can handle that cause I know

    I spoke too soon! Just got a letter from my insurance company yesterday! They are changing dispensing brand name Lipitor for the generic form starting March 1. So I will see if they automatically change my brand name to the generic even tho my doctor marked an X in the DAW box! I am not willing to take another generic as I just got on the brand name

    Glad to hear that Niacin is working for you. My husband's doctor started him on that years ago. He could not take the " hot flashes" and it also caused his knee to swell. I never tried it.

    Sounds good Tor! We are lucky here where we live cause we have a Mennonite community that have their stores where they sell local pasture fed beef that they butcher. How lucky can I be! They have their own chickens too. If only everyone would stop and think about what they are eating.

    Oh good! I am seeing more of this pasture fed and organic stuff on the television cooking shows too....Dr Oz is also recommending local grocery is also putting organic on the regular shelves instead of in the ORGANIC section.

    Please keep us posted as to what your lab results are next time so we can see if the generic Lipitor is as good at lowering cholestrol. Thanks. Also, my insurance company has done a total roundabout on Lipitor...not only is the brand name a preferred drug---they are giving me the brand name 90 day supply for ZERO copay....unreal. This too shall pass

  • organic and pasture fed

    Has anyone tried to buy local foods, organic and pasture fed meats? I am doing so and feeling so much better and my numbers reflect this. No processed foods to speak of either. So much of our foods are packed in third world countries and our own products having other countries foods added to them ---not following our growing regulations. There is nothing

  • Metformin Linked to B12 Deficiency

    I was watching Dr Oz tonight and he spoke of B 12 deficiency and tested his audience for it and 1/3 of the audience had it! Has anyone been tested for this? I have not! WebMD has an article on it that said just what Oz stated---THAT METFORMIN LOWERS OUR one ever told me this! If you are very I am of late....have it tested.

    "So blood glucose checking is more like a compass that gives you information to help decide on which direction to go. I often suggest that people think of blood glucose checking as a personal scientific experiment that helps you to understand how your body reacts to various foods and activities."
