I've used mail order for years with very few problems. They've tried to sneak a generic in a couple of times but that's about it. I've taken advantage of the automatic refill option and they actually send me a recorded phone message to let me know that I have a refill that is getting ready to be shipped and a date to cancel by if I don't want them to send it.
The price difference is unreal. I was going to get my first KeppraXR script filled at CVS but a one mont supply was over $400. I got a 3 month supply for $40 from Express Scripts.
I use my local pharmacy. My employer had me on a mail order pharmacy but after I found out they were sued for over $15 million and were increasing the prices of meds for customers so they could pocket the money I got out of it. Also there are over 2000 complaints with this company. Never again will I use this mail order group. Wishing you well and May God Bless You!
Our insurance requires use of a mail order pharmacy for medications taken for chronic illnesses. The one that they use--OptumRx--is NOT good! My 100mg Topamax tablets & 1mg folic acid tablets are so similar in size and color that a person could easily mix them up.
Getting my keppra by mail works for me since I stopped driving. Cost is less than taxi to drug store. Biggest worry is getting meds lost/stolen in mail, or even my mailbox, which has not yet occurred in my year with this arrangement.
My generic lamotrigine is from an Indian company. A lot are. I wouldn't worry. When I go to India or Brazil I try to load up with any medications I'm taking if they have them. (Haven't been since epilepsy.)
I see I last posted here five years ago when I was getting my meds from a shitty mail order pharmacy.
Now I work at a mail order pharmacy and my meds get dropped off at my desk. I see everything first hand and if other places were run like the one I'm at, I would be happy to order from them. Except here, if someone makes a mistake, I don't have to threaten to kick their ass over the phone, I just go and kick their ass in person. I also have a bunch of pharmacists I can take hostage until they answer all my questions.
