It is true: They byt the chapeast alternative.There are 2 things you can do: 1 ask your physician if he can prescribe 3 months at a time (he will have to write code b if it is a chronic condition like adhd.And use a manhattan pharmacy(or not l.I) 2. Ask your physician to try to obtain a prior authorization for the brand name. These might be available options depending on your particular case and your md.
