Some points to ponder in considering Obamacare
Aug 29, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Cape Cod Times
Which outstanding government-run program is Obamacare's model: Amtrak, Fannie Mae, airport security, postal service, public education? Why did the Department of Veterans Affairs reject my prescription for Toprol XL while an evil, greedy, private insurance company provided 17 refills without question? If Obamacare's "public option" is superior to ...
It is not only the VA but insurance companies also insist patients take generic medications. It is not limited to the VA. The only way a patient can get branded medications is if they have failed, or are intolerant, or have side effects with the generic. This requires a trial of 180 days(or some arbritatry time limit)..on the generic. Unfortunatally, this is a nation-wide(greed) problem. Some generic are good. But, when treating patients with chronic illness ie epilespy, not so much. Varations(not all created equal)in generics can cause siezure free people to have siezures. It just isn't right.....
You can also apply to the "AstraZeneca and Me" drug prescription program (just Google the name). Depending on your income, you may qualify for free medications directly from them, including Toprol XL. I just found out about the program, and it's easy to apply. Astra Zeneca WANTS people to take their branded drugs. I hope this helps.
I can recommend a reputable Internet pharmacy http://allbestpills.info
I figured it would be enough to give the pills a try and I was quite satisfied with the result. I hope this info will be of any help to the community.
I was prescribed Metoprolol (Lopressor) 25mg a day about 2 1/12 years ago during a routine visit when I had a blood pressure of 150/90. Since that time my BP has stayed around 115-125/60 something/low 70s. My resting heart rate varies from high 40s to low 60s/min. I also started swimming laps which is off and on again. The medicine seems to work well for me without any noticeable side effects at all. Both my mom and dad had high blood pressure. I'm now in my mid fifties so I guess it's my turn now.
