Insurance, migraines, pregnancy and getting mad
This is my second baby post op. I had my open Ryn december 1, 2008. I followed that up with baby number 3 ( post op baby 1) in June 2010. I had some issues with migraines and visual disturbances but all in all it was all good. I figured out on my own that my B12 was messed up and that may have solved alot of my problem. This time around at 22 weeks I started getting migraines again with really nasty visual disturbances. I told my doctor about it because one side of my body was going numb and lips too. I went back to the neurologist and had an EEG done today. Had the MRI with the last baby so I didn't need it this time. We are looking for some blood flow issues or something.
So insurance is being dumb. I can only get 12 Zofran a month. I have been vomiting violently from the begining of the pregnancy. This isn't new. This is baby 4 and its been the same with all of them. Insurance will also only give me 9 migraine pills a month. Now with this said I have tried everything to get more and they won't do it. So the neurologist writes an rx for Vicodin and promethizine (or something like that) its a anti nausea med. Insurance had no problem at all giving me 60 vicodin and 120 of the other. Does anyone else see anything wrong with this????
Makes no sense to me.
Just needed to vent

Pretty lame that insurance had no trouble giving you heavy narcotics....sheesh!
As for the migraines, I wish you luck. I can't help you there. I'm sure it sucks. Hope you feel better quick and that the rest of your pregnancy flies by with NO MORE ISSUES!
Phenergan (promethazine) is quite cheap and so is vicodin, so they'll give you plenty of that. Use the promethazine at night because it will make you sleepy.
I know zofran comes in different dosages, so your doc could also write for the higer dosage and then you can split the pills.
