Nurse practitioner

Anyone use one. My insurance is terrible. Luckily I only see my pdoc 2 times a year . But would like to save some money. I pay $145 for my pdoc to write my prescription. It’s always the same and I’m extremely stable. Anyone know how much cheaper I could get a script for. My general won’t do it for me.

I’ve heard that you can get your med’s cheaper if you buy them in Canada or Mexico, if that’s an option for you.

Not sure I know how ,can you mail order them without a prescription?

That I don’t know. I don’t know where you can get accurate information on that, but you probably can find the pertinent information on that if you look very hard. Talk to old people. I hear they get their med’s like that a lot.


Yeah. It is extremely convenient compared to seeing both a psychiatrist and therapist. Honestly I think every health care professional should both prescribe and give therapy because managing meds with someone like a pdoc who you only see like twice a month can be a disaster if you aren’t adjusting well.

However in my experience (I’ve seen psychiatrists as well), my APN does not have as much knowledge of medication as a psychiatrist does, which has created issues for me when for example she is oblivious to certain med interactions or has never heard of a side effect I’m experiencing and has no solutions or even doesn’t believe I’m having it. So. It’s a tradeoff.
