Getting Lyrica
0 Replies
InHisSteps - January 15

Has anyone else had trouble just getting Lyrica? My insurance company is playing doctor again :(

Experience 1) My husband had his leg amputated due to long term ulcerations in july of last year. He was given Lyrica in the hospital and it worked great. When he was released on july 20th, the Lyrica was yanked and it took over 3 months and letters from 3 different doctors to get it again.

Experience 2) My doctor prescribed it for my fibromyalgia on 1/3 of this year. I received a denial letter today stating that I HAVE to try a) Gabapentin, 1800mg per day for 4 weeks AND b) Amitriptyline, 50mg per day for 4 weeks before I can get Lyrica. Good grief, when did insurance companies get medical degrees and the ability to override trained medical professionals in making medical decisions for their patients????

aaarrrggghhh
