Late night trip to Urgent Care

February 19th, 2008 at 06:23 am

DD1 came home from work last night and said she had a bad headache. She had taken a Motrin earler but it did not work. She threw up a couple of times and I explained to her that she had a migraine and just needed to lay in the dark. She was scared because her cousin died at her age 5 years ago from a brain anuerysm. I finally took her to the clinic. I work at one of the branches of this clinic so we do not have to pay a co-pay. However, I did fill a script for Imitrex (pharmacist said the 10 pills without insurance were $250 !!!!) I paid $25 for them and as we were pulling away from drive thru DD says I feel better now. What!! Why didn't you tell me before I paid for the pills?!? I do not have $25 to throw away. She said well now Daddy can have them when he has a migraine. She is right but everytime I try to save or pay ahead or stay on budget I end up spending $ in some other way.

    Oh well, better to have been safe than sorry. I'm glad she's feeling better.

    Ugh! Those migraines can be so nasty! I'm sure those pills will come to use another time!

    you now have a security net for next time...perhaps this will save you a future dr. visit or two because you have that script filled and ready! I live with migranes and fully understand why meds are necessary!!

    You guys are so right! And I have to be thankful for insurance because like I said I work at an urgent care clinic and it is amazing how many people have no insurance. My co-worker and I feel bad and we refer most of them to a lower cost clinic or the city clinic that bases the visit on your pay.
