This is a non partisan rant on regulations within our healthcare and now, it is personable.
Today I went to get my son’s ADHD medication refilled, with no luck. I went to 4 different pharmacies and we are talking major chains and I was told the same thing at each stop. And with each trip, the more furious I became. Each no was met with, we aren’t able to get his medication due to regulations.
What the hell? Regulations? Regulations on a medication that has proven in major medical studies. Regulations for what reason?
So now what? My son has done amazing on his medication, now do we start over? Do we have to start testing new things? I’m waiting on the Doctor to call me back, but in the several conversations that I had with the pharmacists today, it seems that we are going to have to change to a new medication.
To quote a co-worker, “why do things have to be so hard?”
More to come.
