I am very annoyed!

April 13th, 2007 at 07:59 am

I developed an ear ache this morning so I thought I had an ear infection. So I rock up to the doctor, well after I had waited for 2 hours, as you don't need to make an appointment and just wait your turn. Well, he examined me and got me to open my mouth wide open while he pressed a spot near my ear where the jaw connects to the skull and it hurt like heck! So, I have something called TMJ Dysfunction... this means I have to do exercises to help the pain as I have a constant dull ache on one side of my face. The thing is I went to get the painkiller he prescribed and I asked for the generic version. So the chemist dispenses it and then she asks for $19.80! The charge for generic medicine is $4.90 and then she said there is no generic version. I mean shouldn't she have told me that there was no generic version before she bl**dy well dispensed the medicine? So I ended up paying $19.80 for 20 tablets. Thats $1 a tablet! AND they are no good, they do nothing to help the pain! What a rort! I am NOT happy!

    I'm sorry things are not going well for you right now. I know that when I am in pain everybody better stay out of my way.

    I too have TMJ and although the pain is not always constant I have to crack my jaw about 20 times a day so it doesn't get stuck.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    How come your script wasn't covered by your HCC? I thought if you had a HCC all scripts cost only $4.90?

    Because this script wasn't covered by the PBS, you had to pay full price! Not everything is covered for concession holders.
